A flexible toolkit for collaborative Technology Transformation.

LeanIX Enterprise Architecture consists of three world-class products built for ease of use and quick implementation.

LeanIX Application Portfolio Management

Gain visibility into your application landscape, the interconnected IT components and which business capabilities need to be supported
by technology.
  • Import data from Excel, crowdsource information through Surveys, and leverage automated SaaS discovery to get the full picture of your application landscape
  • Undertake a detailed Application Portfolio Assessment to understand key dependencies, the technical and functional fit of your applications, and how they support your business capabilities
  • Identify rationalization and modernization candidates
in your landscape to accelerate your organization's digital transformation agenda

LeanIX Technology Risk and Compliance

Manage technology risks by identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks in IT systems and processes. Protect valuable assets, ensure business continuity, and comply with regulations and standards.
  • Discover IT components by integrating with your CMDB, either out-of-the-box with ServiceNow or build your custom CMDB integration
  • Get always up-to-date lifecycle information attached to your IT components

  • Proactively manage obsolescence risk and establish tech standards

LeanIX Architecture and Road Map Planning

Define the to-be state of your enterprise architecture, understand the impact of your transformations, and create actionable technology roadmaps to confidently navigate your business transformation.
  • Visualize the future state of your enterprise architecture and get buy-in before you even begin with detailed target state modeling and reporting
  • Give a boost to your transformation planning with pre-defined and configurable transformations, the impact these will have on your as-is state, and the roadmap you need to get there
  • Execute against the planned transformation and document your progress, ensuring your as-is state reflects the up-to-date information and is ready for the next transformation

Tie it all together and make sense of IT with the LeanIX Meta Model.

The predefined Meta Model allows you to quickly categorize and map the connections between your enterprise architecture’s fundamental components. Based on years of industry best practice, the Meta Model lets you focus on business impact, rather than reinventing the wheel by designing your own taxonomy.
  • Our Meta Model defines relationships between the different Fact Sheets you can use to collect and consolidate information about architectural objects like apps, business capabilities, or IT components
  • A pragmatic Meta Model both accelerates the implementation of LeanIX and ensures long-term success by providing a common framework for the entire organization to envision and execute technology transformation
  • While our Meta Model is based on proven best practices, you are free to configure it for your own unique situation

Boost your productivity with AI capabilities

Imagine having more time to focus on strategic enterprise architecture initiatives.

By automating documentation, accelerating
research, and driving innovation with actionable insights, the built-in AI capabilities give you the freedom to apply your expertise to a wider range of business priorities.

As AI grows in importance across your IT landscape, LeanIX provides you the AI capabilities needed to model, govern, and transform it.


Effortlessly import, analyze, and model data in LeanIX.

The value of an Enterprise Architecture solution lies in the data it holds and what you can do with it. Using our out-of-the-box integrations with best-in-class partners, your business can implement powerful ways to ingest and work with your data.
