Learn how to rethink Enterprise Architecture by combining your existing EA repository with real-time data from our latest webinar. Gartner reports that 90% of the information assets from big data analytics efforts through 2017 will be siloed and therefore unleveragable. LeanIX makes all information available in a single repository of information, which helps to solve many use cases.
In times of economic instability, fast technological growth, and outward pressure from startups, enterprises are seeking to stretch their budgets to get the most out of it. Certainly, one of the fastest-growing areas and enablers of future growth is information technology, but it is also one of the biggest budget spenders.
Finding areas to save costs isn’t easy. CIOs spent years and years reducing costs by merging data centers and help desks, virtualizing servers, rationalizing processes, delaying upgrades, and outsourcing services. Even more concerning, a recent Bain & Company study highlighted that in most companies IT doesn’t even adhere to the overall business strategy. As a result, companies may spend, on average, 20 percent more on IT than they really need to.
Sometime at the beginning of the year, the Head of Infrastructure of a manufacturing company walks into the CIO’s office: “I just had Oracle on the phone. We have a problem”, he said. “Why is that?”, asks the CIO. “We need to get off that Version 11 Database. They are going to waive premium support and the security risk is no longer acceptable”. “Uh, ok… What does this really mean?", asks the CIO looking puzzled. The head of infrastructure starts to explain: “The migration will have quite a few ripple effects, and the new version requires a newer server operating system. That means some of the older servers need to be replaced. I suspect that a large number of applications will be affected, and migration from the older ERP legacy systems will be tricky. I cannot promise that we will make it without any production downtime.” With a worried expression, the CIO mutters, “I wish you would have told me that before the budget planning two months ago…” Source
Earlier this month, LeanIX co-founder and Co-CEO, André Christ participated in a panel session at the ServiceNow FedForum: Modernizing Government IT Now event in Washington, DC. He was joined by some of the best and brightest in Federal IT, including Renee Wynn (NASA) Mark Patterson (Department of the Army Civilian Human Resources Agency), Mike Parker (U.S. Air Force) and Scott Blackburn (Department of Veterans Affairs).
As digital transformation changes the face of entire industries; the government is next on the list. Companies are taking advantage of real-time analytics, automation, machine learning and cloud-based IT services, which enables them to reduce costs, minimize risks, and gain control of costly IT sprawl.
Customers of different industries and sizes trust in LeanIX. What they love most about the tool are the quick setup, meaningful reports, value-oriented features, and the dedicated customer success initiative.
One of the core views of enterprise architecture is a business capability matrix. Business capability modeling is a technique for the representation of an organization’s business anchor model, independent of the organization’s structure, process, team members, or domain.
