LeanIX Customer Testimonials


“The most significant benefit of LeanIX is the license management capability and being
able to track individual renewals. We don’t have a contract management solution in place,
so being able to view upcoming renewals has helped.”

An ability to track renewals — education organisation:

“A significant benefit of LeanIX is that it gives our organisation the ability to identify all
the services we use throughout the company and to reduce redundancy and simplify our
environment. It also helps with shadow IT, by identifying when someone signs up for a
service themselves, rather than going through the proper channels.”

Reduced shadow IT — software organisation:

“Application portfolio management is a big IT benefit for us. Overall, LeanIX gives our
organisation the ability to speed up our change, transformation, and projects; it’s a big
benefit for us. Time and money are big drivers on the IT side.”

The acceleration of transformation and projects — media organisation:

“LeanIX provides us with a rapid way to explain the business to someone coming in. This
is especially useful because our organization can provide them with a list of the available
application systems that we provide.”

Better understanding of business — distribution organisation:

A large benefit of LeanIX is the interfaces and transparency we now have with our estate.
LeanIX has given us the ability to get knowledge out of people’s heads and into LeanIX
regarding interfaces. It has been eye opening because even the solution architects had
no idea of some of this interface information.”

Greater interface transparency — financial services organisation:
