LeanIX selected start-up at the Hamburg IT Strategy Days 2017

SaaS company presents its product to an exclusive audience at the largest IT management conference in Germany

Bonn, 14 February 2017 - The start-up LeanIX from Bonn has been given the opportunity to present itself and its product in front of 750 CIOs and IT decision makers as one of only a few select start-ups.

The IT-Strategietage (IT Strategy Days) are taking place in Hamburg for the 15th time on 16 and 17 February. Deciding factors for organizations that want to remain competitive in the future will be examined under the theme “IT’S ALL ABOUT SPEED – Strategies for digital transformation”. “The Hamburg IT Strategy Days are an established event for the industry and enable us to reach a top-class audience”, says André Christ, LeanIX founder and Co-CEO, and according to, one of the top 30 CTOs to follow on Twitter. “In today’s time when companies have less and less time to release new products into the market, IT architecture is a deciding factor for success or failure.”

The question, which strategies, skills and management approaches CIOs can apply to help their organizations succeed will be debated in presentations, interesting round tables and lively discussions. And an important partner for the digitization is LeanIX.

The start-up from Bonn provides the leading solution for Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) as Software-as-a-Service in the public cloud or on-premise. The application connects elements of information technology seamlessly with business activities and delivers an easy and fast inventory of an organization’s IT. “We supply our clients with a kind of map of their information technology”, says co-founder André Christ.

LeanIX not only enables digital transformation “made in Germany” for companies of all sizes but also changes the way EAM is used. Clients like Adidas, Axel Springer, Beiersdorf, DHL and RWE already trust LeanIX and its safety certified technologies. The start-up has also been able to expand its customer base in the US market already winning well-known clients Haworth and Flagstar Bank.

About LeanIX

The web-based platform has compelling advantages over traditional approaches, including an intuitive interface, flexible reporting and open APIs.
