We don’t say this enough, but LeanIX’s global network of Certified Partners— 43 in total from 10 countries—is fundamental to our company’s growth. It’s the not-so-hidden secret behind how we deliver our cloud-native Enterprise Architecture solutions to the number of companies we do and contribute to so many digital transformations worldwide. Based on a combination of technology enablement (online certifications, full product access, etc.), sales enablement (proof-of-concept and demo support, sales workshops, etc.), and general partner enablement (access to an evolving resources library, a dedicated LeanIX Partner Manager, etc.), our partners are able to use our tools to their fullest—and in turn, so do their clients.
By all accounts, the 2019 LeanIX EA Connect Days was a success. With 450+ participants, 27 presentations, and 1000+ trees sponsored for planting in Nicaragua by LeanIX and its attendees, the international Enterprise Architecture community took full advantage of two days’ worth of knowledge sharing on IT and modern business strategies. Not to mention an opportunity for hands-on demonstrations of our company’s latest product releases: LeanIX Cloud Native Suite and LeanIX Smart Xplore™.
Detailed summaries and video recordings of each of the EACD presentations will be posted to the LeanIX blog in the coming weeks, but until then, here's just a small glimpse of what took place.
Coverage of LeanIX's EA Connect Days continues today with a follow-up on our company’s second major product announcements: LeanIX Smart Xplore™.
The 2019 LeanIX EA Connect Days kicked off today in grand style. After a keynote presentation on the “burnout epidemic” by Bruce Daisley, VP EMEA at Twitter and host of the Eat Sleep Work Repeat podcast, LeanIX CEO André Christ took the stage to share his company’s roadmap for the year ahead—a moment each of the event’s 450+ attendees had been anticipating.
Oddly, the arrival of LeanIX’s annual EA Connect Days has come to signal the beginning of the holiday season for many at the intersection of Business and IT. This is either because the conference always takes place at the very end of November (this year on the 26th and 27th) or since it is when LeanIX gifts the international Enterprise Architecture community with product updates and IT modernization strategies aplenty.
A new study from LeanIX on the current state of Enterprise Architecture—EA Insights 2019—is now available to download. Built from answers given by a diversity of senior IT managers and Enterprise Architects, Solution Architects and IT Architects, EA Insights 2019 is a review of the EA discipline and its role in accelerating digital transformation efforts within enterprises across 19 industries such as Automotive, Banking and Technology. In total, more than 1,800+ responses from throughout 21 countries and three regions were collected.
So here it is. After months of organizing and searching for the right speakers, we’re pleased to finally have further details to share on the 2019 EA Connect Days agenda.
Just as LeanIX itself was designed to accommodate the unmet needs of those seeking Business Capabilities-focused IT architectures, the annual EA Connect Days was started in 2014 to showcase their previously overlooked insights. Both product and event have since become integral to one another, and though the scale of each has increased in pace with customer/attendee demand, the fundamental objective of the two has remained the same: keep improving the IT-Business relationship.
Joyful descriptions of digital futures are rare these days. For every motivational article from McKinsey on evolving from “disrupted” to “disruptor”, the institute now seems obliged to publish a fully-rationalized version to account for the 86% of business executives whose digital transformations are occurring below expectations.
