GOOD, Germany and BOSTON, June 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — LeanIX today announced an expanded partnership with SAP aimed at accelerating digital transformation journeys. The company’s Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) solution is now an SAP-approved application, available on SAP® Store. The solution helps companies map their critical business processes with their enterprise architecture, SaaS and microservices landscapes, providing greater transparency and process control. Customers also benefit from deep end-to-end integration with SAP® Signavio® Process Manager, which provides a streamlined experience from business context to system configuration and application lifecycle management capabilities.

SAP-approved applications are a category of solutions in the SAP partner ecosystem that help customers become smarter, better-run businesses. Apps approved by SAP are certified premium by SAP with increased security, extensive testing, and measurement against benchmark results.

Partnership expansion builds on nine years of collaboration and product integrations between LeanIX and Signavio prior to acquisition by SAP.
