"Overall good experience
I like the product itself as much as the community and LeanIX Support. Changes and improvements are deployed on a regular basis. I particularly like the support of surveys and collaboration features. The overall application is collaborating with business purposes and leaders so you mostly face relevant updates and features."

"Great EA start, that last long LeanIX offers a low learning curve for staters but still is very powerful laterwards. Therefore it offers a good starting point in the EA discipline without all of the theoretical background which ist also there if you need it."
