LeanIX Recognized as a Visionary in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools

LeanIX evaluated for completeness of vision and ability to execute

Bonn/Boston -- October 24, 2019 -- LeanIX, the leading global provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions in Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM), today announced the company has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Visionaries quadrant of the Gartner Inc. 2019 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Architecture Tools. Companies in the report are evaluated on their ability to execute and completeness of vision.

LeanIX is positioned in the report for the first time. The company was acknowledged as a Visionary for its business-outcome-driven approach to enterprise architecture.

For those organizations focused on digital transformation initiatives, they often run up against a common problem: their modernization targets aren’t proportionate to their present capabilities and most pressing operational needs. Therefore, LeanIX designed its platform to enable businesses across industries to rapidly unify siloed applications, processes, and user groups to provide a holistic, data-driven view that helps them instantly visualize the as-is state to identify, prioritize, and make meaningful decisions in their IT landscape.

“We believe our recognition in the Gartner Magic Quadrant as a Visionary reinforces our commitment to our customers and validates LeanIX as an enterprise-ready platform supporting global organizations at scale,” said André Christ, CEO and Co-Founder, LeanIX. “As a result, our customers experience rapid acceleration of digital initiatives in addition to quantifiable business outcomes. We feel that this latest recognition by Gartner further solidifies our product roadmap, and is yet another testament to our staying power as a market leader.”

Since its inception in 2012, LeanIX has gained fast traction in the market. This year alone, and in every consecutive year, the company has doubled its customer base and achieved more than 100 percent growth globally. The company was also recently named a “Strong Performer” in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Architecture Management Suites, Q1 2019 report, as well as one of Germany’s Top 10 fastest growing technology companies by Deloitte in 2018.
