LeanIX Further Empowers Enterprise Architects to Focus on Driving Business Transformation

New, No-Code Automations Feature Reduces Manual Work while Improving Data Quality and Enhancing Collaboration

BONN, Germany and BOSTON – September 1, 2022 With a looming recession serving as a stark reminder that business success today demands ongoing innovation and organizational adaptability, LeanIX, a leading platform enabling continuous transformation of corporate and product IT, announced that the company is expanding the capabilities of its Automations feature.

LeanIX introduced no-code, rule-based Automations to simplify collaboration among stakeholders, improve data quality and reduce time-consuming manual data updates. This feature represents one more step in the company’s ongoing mission to accelerate time to value by reducing inessential work so enterprise architects and other IT stakeholders can focus on more critical initiatives, from application rationalization to digital transformation.

The expansion of Automations builds upon the original feature to streamline communication and collaboration between business and IT teams. Specifically, it introduces new use cases that tackle stakeholder accountability for data maintenance within an organization’s EA repository and improves data quality by boosting in-tool data completeness, using conditions and configurable actions to assign custom tags and subscribed users as prefilled data.

Access to high-quality data and increased efficiency through automation are both imperative to businesses today,” said André Christ, CEO and co-Founder of LeanIX. “It’s no secret that CIOs and tech teams are rethinking their priorities as they monitor market behavior. They are also seeking out new ways to develop the kind of organizational agility allowing them to adapt to the current disruption and anticipate the next. We know automation has a big role to play here and have continuously invested in platform capabilities that free up time for users to focus on business-critical tasks. Automations is the latest step in this process.

LeanIX Automations are just one more way that the company’s platform allows organizations to address high priority business goals:

  • Achieving IT cost-efficiency while accelerating IT innovation
  • Delivering better digital experiences for customers and employees
  • Driving sustainable business transformation
  • Democratizing IT by ensuring access to accurate data and supporting citizen developer initiatives

"LeanIX Automations simplify what much of EAM is still working towards – quality data, accountability, and collaboration,” said a distinguished architect from a $40b+ global retailer. “We federate the data stewardship responsibilities to the Application and Technology Owners across the organization, leveraging LeanIX’s flexible user licensing. No-code Automations have allowed us to implement an automated QA step to ensure data quality for new entries. In addition, using Automations enables the creation of a trackable action item and notification to all appropriate data owners. This has allowed us to enforce federated data ownership for scale while ensuring and improving data quality.
