Unlock continuous transformation with LeanIX and SAP on June 9-10, 2022
At LeanIX Connect Summit Americas 2022 in June, the leading minds in enterprise architecture, IT and business transformation will be discussing every conceivable aspect of what enterprises need to do to enable continuous transformation.
One big (and daunting) transformation we’ll be helping event attendees to handle and accelerate is SAP S/4HANA transformation. (And we’ll have SAP experts on hand to assist us.)
If your business runs on SAP and you haven’t yet begun migrating to SAP S/4HANA, you’re probably contemplating the process with some trepidation.
Time is ticking, after all, with SAP ending support of ECC in 2027. And besides, moving to SAP S/4HANA represents a necessary upgrade for businesses wishing to become what SAP calls ‘The Intelligent Enterprise’. (And believe us: you don’t want to be the only unintelligent enterprise left in your industry in five years’ time.)
Something is holding businesses back from embarking upon this (increasingly urgently) necessary SAP S/4HANA transformation. It’s something, in fact, that holds back digital transformation projects in general.
And it must be destroyed.
We’re talking about a lack of visibility.
Seeing is evolving: why visibility matters in transformation
When it comes to business technology transformation, you need to see exactly what you’re transforming before you can transform it – without making a mess of things, at least.
If you’re transforming your ERP, then, you need to see into your ERP. And this is no cakewalk – ERP systems being notoriously complex, non-standardized and packed with hidden interdependencies. Transforming such complex environments in the dark can be a costly, lengthy and highly risky business.
You also need to be able to see how the applications in your ERP are tied to your business processes. Otherwise, you can’t transform your ERP without risking compromising or even damaging your business processes.
So: how can you get the visibility into your ERP you need to transform it with confidence?
Here’s the magic formula:
LeanIX + SAP = 20:20 vision for transformation
By combining LeanIX and SAP, you can get a clear picture of both your ERP and your business process dependencies – and transform your organization more safely, quickly and cost-effectively.
LeanIX helps you conquer ERP complexity by giving you full visibility into your SAP and non-SAP estate, plus all the tools you need to build effective architectural roadmaps and support change management.
And by leveraging LeanIX’s integration with SAP Signavio, you also get eyes on how your ERP ties to your business processes. Merging Enterprise Architecture with Business Process Intelligence enables you to understand exactly what technology to keep, update, upgrade or toss out when transforming your business.

For a much deeper dive, you’re going to want to join us at LeanIX Connect Summit Americas in Boston (and virtually) on June 9-10. The event is sponsored by SAP Signavio, and there’s going to be a super strong SAP presence over the two days.
Alongside SAP user group sessions (at which you’ll have the opportunity to network with fellow SAP users and ask questions of experts), you can sign up for four sessions being led by guest speakers from SAP. Namely:
Damien Johnson, Chief Architect, Global RISE Ecosystems
Jean-Patrick Ascenci, Ecosystem Evangelist, SAP Signavio
Paul Kurchina, SAP Community Evangelist
Jason Porterfield, Head of North America Enterprise Architecture, SAP
Among the topics they’ll be covering: the benefits of combining Enterprise Architecture with Business Process Excellence and how LeanIX can be a value-add and/or activator for RISE with SAP.
Whether or not your interest in transformation is SAP-related, this is going to be the event of the year for EAs, IT leaders and business leaders to pick up transformation tips.
