Hi Everyone,We are struggle with how to structure our retail site (Coop.se) in LeanIX. What shoule we managed as applications and what should be IT-components? Are there anyone out there that have done this and are satisfied with the result? Anyone that can share their experience?Thanks in advanceChristina
Hi, our organisation is quite extensive, with a lot of internal helpdesk or service support units despite the actual providers. What kind of Fact Sheets are you using? Do you recommend a Fact Sheet Type Provider?I’m open for all your help and suggestions.Cheers, Jessica
Building on the definitions of IT Component Lifecycle dates and assuming these dates are provider dates, then I have a dilemma about understanding which IT Component is currently in use. Consider this: I add an IT Component, say MyFirewall version 1. I use the lifecycle catalog to add the provider lifecycle dates. I notice MyFirewall v1 is in Phase Out. I clone the factsheet and update the version number, and make MyFirewall v2 the successor of MyFirewall v1. I use the lifecycle catalog to add the provider dates for MyFirewall v2 - it is in the Active lifecycle state.At this point I don’t know which MyFirewall version I’m using in Production because the dates are the provider dates, not my organisation’s lifecycle dates.It seems to me that using the Lifecycle Catalog only makes sense when the IT Component supports an Application (which gives you your organisation’s lifecycle dates).Do I understand correctly or am I missing something?
Think Pace Layering: To prioritize and balance the stability and innovation within your Enterprise architecture
In recent years, we have produced numerous blog posts, white-papers, and webinars on the topic of typical assessment approaches used with LeanIX: PACE, TIME & 6RWith this new blog series, we want to take you through this subject step-by-step and help you understand and apply these approaches and further complement our documentation. FundamentalsPace layering – a concept that challenges conventional thinking and provides a structured approach to thrive amidst continuous transformation journeys. Pace layering is not just another buzzword, but a fundamental strategy that can allow businesses to prioritize IT investments and resources based on the needs of each layer.Pace Layering methodology is used in LeanIX EAM to classify business capabilities based on strategic value and pace of change. It enables the development of enterprise architecture strategies for each layer to effectively balance stability, agility, and innovation.Pace Layering facilitates informed decision-making during
Hello dear experts,I am new to LeanIX EAM, and in the Inventory I would like to make a selection of Applications, in a somewhat sophisticated way.I have two sets of applications defined by two "User Groups". By using the selection parameter "at least one of the selected item", I can identify all the applications attached to the first User Group (G1) OR to the second (G2). By using "all of the selected items", I identify the applications attached to the first User Group AND to the second.I would like to use a third group (G3), and get all the applications belonging to (G1 AND G2 ) OR G3.Is there a way to achieve this?Thanks in advance for your help.Best regards,Thierry
Dashboard functionality has only 3 access restriction - Unrestricted, Write restricted and Read & Write restricted. My view is by Using “Share dashboard (similar to Search and Reports) feature” LeanIX admins/members can create architecture viewpoints views for CIO, Architects, respective business users. Use Case: CIO/CTO will be interested to view the CAPEX alignment to architecture land scape, architects can view risk and plan proactive mitigation etc. Please share your views and suggestions.
Hi all, I have a new question:Say we have applications made of IT components and each IT component is linked to a provider (i.e. vendor).Can you search in the inventory for all apps that have at least 1 IT component from a specific vendor? I have tried but I could not find how apart from accessing the relationship explorer for the provider I am interested into, but I’d like a search or a report instead.
The help text on the IT Component lifecycle dates seems to imply these are dates when the organisation is doing something with the component rather than dates when the provider is doing something. It seems to me, given the Lifecycle Catalog supplies provider dates, that the help text needs to be reworded, e.g.Plan - The component has been announced by the provider Phase in - The component is in beta or early access Active - The component is generally available Phase out - The component has reached end of support. Extended support may be offered by the provider. End of life - The component is end of life and no longer supported by the providerIs this the correct interpretation of the dates provided by the Lifecycle Catalog? Has anyone adjusted their help text and is willing to share their wording?

I would like configure the application fact sheet to add a relation to another application fact sheet.If I click on one section and then on “Add Relation” I can create a relation to any other type of fact sheet, but not application.Is this a known limitation? Or is there a way to relax some constraint somewhere to enable it? Thank youRoberto
Hello, Our management are very interesting to have a view of Cost of each application. Costing modelization are quite complexe … some application are CAPEX some are OPEX … some have shared ressources (and shared cost).Who have do something interesting on the “cost” application topic ?
Hello, I’m not sure that the right place to put this question … but I’m trying. I’ve launched a survey few days ago which targeted several users (application accountable). Some user inform me that accountable have changed. Two case exist :1st case : user answer the 1st question to confirm is the accountable, if not they have text filed to give the name of the new accountable. In this case the survey are considered done. 2nd case : use inform me by email to change the accountable (but user don’t answer the survey). They have a way to :relaunch the survey on specific fact sheet ? (without running a new survey with dedicated target, in order to have global overview of the survey). automatic update the target user of a survey (if the fact-sheet subscription was updated) Currently I use the old survey engine (because I have some fact-sheet element and conditionality). Thanks you in advance.
HiWill you close the old community/forum and include the support forms into the new community? The ticketing system in the old forum makes this new community somewhat redundant for me. Previously, if I encountered an issue and couldn't find a solution in the forum, I would open a ticket. Now, I have to search in two places: the community and the forum.It's possible that I may not fully understand the concept behind this ... RegardsHendrik
Hi all,we integrated different sources into the central search capability of the Community. The idea is that you don’t have to search for answers and content on different places, but get answers directly on a single go-to platform.The search lists results from the following sources:The Community itself LeanIX Documentation, clustered by product (SMP, EAM, VSM, and Shared Services) LeanIX Academy What is your feedback, does that capability help you to find answers faster? What are you usually searching for that you do not discuss with your LeanIX contacts (Customer Success Manager, Support, ...)?
Application Portfolio Assessment with LeanIX: Maximizing the Benefits In this article, we will explore the benefits of conducting an APA with LeanIX and how it can help organizations achieve their objectives.Reduces IT CostsOne of the most significant benefits of an APA with LeanIX is the reduction of IT costs. By identifying redundant, outdated, or underutilized applications, organizations can eliminate unnecessary expenses associated with application maintenance, upgrades, and licensing. An APA can also help identify opportunities for consolidation or replacement of applications, resulting in more streamlined IT infrastructure and lower overall costs.Provides Insights for Decision-makingConducting an APA with LeanIX produces data-driven insights that drive informed and strategic planning decisions. The EAM tool enables companies to visualize data in the form of heatmaps, charts, and dashboards that facilitate analysis and identify areas for improvement. The application landscape insi
What should be your next steps for implementing an Application Portfolio Assessment with LeanIX? Step 1: Define the scope of the assessmentThe first step in conducting an APA is to define the scope of the assessment. This involves identifying the applications and systems that will be reviewed to ensure they align with your organization's goals and objectives. With LeanIX, you can easily filter and group your applications based on various criteria, such as business owners, technology domains, or criticality.Step 2: Collect and analyze dataOnce you have identified the applications and systems to be assessed, you need to collect data on each application, including its usage, cost, complexity, and alignment with your organization's goals. The data can be collected from various sources, such as IT service management tools, spreadsheets, or application owners. Once you have gathered the data, you can use the LeanIX Application Portfolio Management module to analyze the data and generate insi
Application Portfolio Assessment (APA) is usually the first step on your journey with LeanIX. It helps you build a repository of your applications and drive faster technical and functional assessments. As companies continue to grow and evolve, their IT landscape often becomes increasingly complex. Application portfolios can expand and therefore become disorganized, making it challenging to manage and maintain them effectively. That is where Application Portfolio Assessment (APA) is used.Application Portfolio Assessment (APA) involves the analysis of an organization's Application Portfolio to understand its strengths, weaknesses, risks, and opportunities. By conducting an APA, companies can identify any redundant, outdated, or trivial applications and systems, which can help reduce IT costs and improve overall efficiency. Additionally, an APA can help companies identify new opportunities for innovative and emerging technologies.LeanIX and its APA module provides in-depth insights into a
The application portfolio is an essential aspect of any IT landscape. Ensuring that the portfolio is optimized to meet an organization’s operational and financial needs is the key to ongoing business success.By reducing complexity, managing cost, and aligning applications with critical business capabilities, organizations can improve their overall effectiveness and competitiveness. A well-organized, up-to-date application repository is essential for all these initiatives. Complex spreadsheets just can’t do the job.Why is application rationalization a relevant use case?For most of the organizations that are using LeanIX, application rationalization is a key use case. The goal is to clean up their application landscape and achieve efficiency gains and reduce costs right away.Application rationalization can also pave the way for other use cases. These initiatives are much easier to realize once you have an efficient IT landscape in place and all redundancies and inefficiencies have been r
