In January 2012 André has founded LeanIX GmbH (Bonn, Germany) together with Jörg G. Beyer. With their Software-as-a-Service leanIX they are supporting companies to keep an overview on their IT portfolio in order to reduce cost and complexity. leanIX is the first tool on the market, which drastically lowers the entry barrier for companies to use such a tool. Fast-growing start-ups as well as large enterprises will benefit from the pragmatic way how to manage IT.

In their roles as global CIO, Line Manager or Consultant in market leading companies they always were confronted with over-complicated business software. Therefore they decided to provide business software, which is as easy as Google, as useful as Excel, as interesting as Facebook and as open as Wikipedia. The first release of leanIX is available on the market since August 2012.
