Bonn / Boston - December 19, 2018 - LeanIX, the leading provider of Software-as-a-Service solutions in Enterprise Architecture (EA) Management, today announced its inclusion in Forrester’s Now Tech: Enterprise Architecture Management Suites, Q4 2018 report. Using analysis of market presence and functionality, Forrester positioned LeanIX alongside Enterprise Architecture Management Suite (EAMS) industry peers across large, mid-size, and small players.

The Now Tech report aims to help Enterprise Architecture (EA) professionals better understand the value they can expect from EAM providers. According to the report, “EAMS offerings help manage the complex challenges faced by EA professionals by supporting six primary EA competencies: modeling, strategy development, assessment, communication, research, and change management.” The report goes on to note that, “EAMS enable EA pros to assess the impact of decisions across the whole firm and help demand managers to plan change at a holistic level.”

LeanIX was included by Forrester in the primary functionality segments of insights management, content personalization, and standards management capabilities.

“In a world where DevOps, Agile, and Cloud are now status quo, LeanIX is the next-generation solution for Enterprise Architecture Management,” said André Christ, CEO, and co-Founder of LeanIX. “Whether its integration with ServiceNow or its unrivaled out-of-the-box reporting capabilities, we are empowering EAs and IT professionals to seamlessly map business capabilities, streamline and automate reporting and analysis, and identify opportunities for growth. We’re honored to be recognized by Forrester as a player in the EAM space.”

This recognition comes on the heels of LeanIX’s recent $30 million Series C funding round announcement led by Insight Venture Partners, as well as its being named 10th on the Deloitte 2018 Technology Fast 50 list for Germany.
