An extended partnership with SAP aims to accelerate digital transformation projects of existing SAP customers. Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) is available as an SAP-endorsed app in the SAP Store. The solution enables companies to relate their essential business processes to their enterprise architecture and their SaaS and microservices landscape, giving them significantly improved visibility and control over their processes. In addition, existing SAP customers are expected to benefit from end-to-end integration with the Signavio Process Manager solution.

SAP Endorsed Apps are a category of solutions from the SAP partner ecosystem that aim to support existing customers on a path to best-run, intelligent businesses. Endorsed apps are premium certified by SAP and feature additional security and extensive testing.

LeanIX and SAP's expanded partnership builds on nine years of collaboration and product integration with Signavio prior to its acquisition by SAP. "LeanIX's EAM solution helps customers adapt more quickly to changing enterprise architecture requirements while taking advantage of process excellence through integration with SAP Signavio solutions"says Gero Decker, General Manager of Signavio. "The SAP Endorsed App complements our portfolio and meets the needs of customers who need to move critical applications to the cloud as part of their transformation."
