LeanIX Announces Astronaut Mike Massimino as Keynote Speaker for EA Connect Days 2020

Keynote Topic Offers “Lessons from Space on How to Succeed in a World of Rapid Change”

Bonn, Germany and Boston, MA – August 4, 2020 - LeanIX, a provider of Software-as-a-Service solutions in Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM), today announced that former NASA astronaut (and frequent guest actor on Big Bang Theory) Mike Massimino will be keynote speaker at its EA Connect Days industry conference. The conference will be hosted September 2-3, 2020 both physically in Bonn, Germany and virtually online.

EA Connect Days have become the best-known peer conferences for Enterprise Architects, CIOs, and IT executives which bring together hundreds of experts to discuss and resolve risks and challenges in today’s enterprise IT strategy and planning.

Massimino’s keynote will draw from his space experience at NASA and offer perspectives on how collaboration, teamwork and innovation is what drives success in times of rapid change.

“The technology running in today’s corporate IT departments can be more complex than the technology that launched us into space, and some of their decisions can impact the entire world. I’m really looking forward to sharing my personal experiences with a group of talented technologists who design these IT architectures,” said Massimino.

LeanIX develops a modern Enterprise Architecture (EA) platform that aligns technology strategy with business goals by being a single source of truth for Corporate IT and Product IT data and processes.

“We’re looking forward to Mike delivering the keynote for EA Connect Days because of his outstanding credentials and passions,” said André Christ, CEO and Co-founder of LeanIX. He is an inspirational human being who shows us what real leadership can look like, especially in the face of crisis, and who never gives up in pursuing a worthy goal.”
