Custom EAM Reporting with LeanIX

Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) belongs to the most important organizational capabilities these days. As we showed earlier, EAM comprises the necessary methodologies and means for a prudent IT landscape planning based on an organization’s strategic (and digital) objectives.

EAM tools offer functionality to collect and correlate information about many aspects of your IT landscape (i.e. applications, components, information flows, business supports, business services, service products) and come with several reports and views to make this abundance of information visible and “digestible”.

An architecture management is most effective when the information collected in the EAM tool can be queried and displayed individually for all intended target groups. Each user (be it CIO, enterprise architect, application owner or else) gets exactly the information about the architecture that is most relevant for his/her tasks.

LeanIX is a relatively young member of the EAM tool group (compared to tools like Alfabet or ADOit). It is developed by the Germany-based LeanIX GmbH, is based on a very compact meta-model and is completely web-based.

It offers several reporting capabilities out of the box, e.g. application and project portfolios, cost reports, application and component landscapes, matrices and roadmaps and even a free-drawing capability.

Beyond that, LeanIX can be customized for the individual questions of an organization. It comes with an open interface (API) based on common web technologies (JavaScript, JSON etc.) which is used to integrate custom developed reports or also dashboards.

For example: An IT transition project might need a specific view of only a section of the IT landscape, or one would like to analyze specific information about some applications (is the application business critical, which data protection requirements should the application fulfil etc.) in preparation for an IT project (as shown in the picture above).

We support you designing your EAM reporting: As certified LeanIX partner we help you identify the information needs of the various user groups, design the report, realize it and integrate it into your LeanIX workspace.
