In his keynote at the LeanIX Connect Summit [1], Andre Christ (CEO, LeanIX) highlighted how innovation and transformation depend on collaboration, exemplified by the partnership between SAP Signavio and LeanIX. In a video shown during the keynote, Gero Decker (General Manager, SAP Signavio) announced taking this collaboration to the next level - the One Process Acceleration Layer will be made available jointly in SAP Signavio and LeanIX.

The One Process Acceleration Layer [2] centralizes SAP’s 50 years of industry expertise and experience in driving transformation initiatives into a collection of value accelerators, so customers can easily leverage benchmark data, SAP Reference Architecture and SAP Best Practices to accelerate their business transformation.

LeanIX and SAP Signavio: EAM and BPM unite to drive Business Transformation

During the session EAM: Integrations Deep Dive [3], Dominik Rose (VP Product Management & Platform Strategy, LeanIX) and Per Bernhardt (Director Engineering, LeanIX) shared the outlook on LeanIX and SAP Signavio integration. In the upcoming year, LeanIX will leverage the content from One Process Acceleration Layer. On the roadmap is the plan to make the SAP Reference Architecture content available on LeanIX as a Reference Catalog [4]. With this, LeanIX will be an additional channel, where customers can explore and consume the SAP Reference Architecture Content.

What’s next?
To kick-off this initiative, a joint Minimum Viable Product between SAP Signavio and LeanIX will start and will focus initially on making the cross-industry Business Capability Model from the SAP Reference Architecture Content available to customers.

Future releases will focus on making available other elements of the SAP Reference Architecture Content, such as the Business Process Model and Solution Components. Moreover, industry-specific content will be made available in future releases.

Stay tuned for future updates as this initiative progresses.
