“In today’s digital age, many enterprises across industries are undergoing huge changes that demand effective and efficient solutions within their organization. Yet, companies have been slow to move away from outdated, legacy technology that impedes growth and limits innovation,” said Jan Puzicha, Vice President of Product at LeanIX. “LeanIX has developed a solution that streamlines processes and workflows by breaking down silos and allowing teams to better collaborate and deliver results. I’m really excited to join LeanIX and work alongside a team committed to enabling true transparency and efficiency for enterprises around the world.”
