The 2019 LeanIX US EA Connect Day is over. Though a single-day event, we counted 60+ global attendees who joined eight varieties of sessions on using data-driven Enterprise Architecture to conduct digital business strategies. Of note, this conference served as an opportunity for LeanIX to formally introduce a number of our tool’s new/improved features—each one of which is briefly described in this blog post.
Highlights from two presentations: "Digital Means Designing for Change" and "Funding Innovation Through Effective Portfolio Management"
Representatives from LeanIX offered keynote and feature presentations in Chicago this week to audiences at Forrester’s 2019 Digital Transformation & Innovation Forum, a conference hosted by the global research firm and dedicated to tech-driven business enablement.

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.
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.

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.
