Cloud Intelligence Overview

Cloud Intelligence is part of the LeanIX Cloud Native Suite. It discovers Cloud Components from AWS, Azure and GCP in an automatic fashion and imports these into a LeanIX workspace. This enables you to increase agility, manage cloud-specific security and governance, and create transparency about cloud spend. This is especially important for multi-cloud environments. The data from the Cloud Intelligence workspace can be aggregated, distilled, and automatically synchronized into a LeanIX Enterprise Architecture workspace.

How Does Cloud Intelligence Work

LeanIX uses Cloudockit as a strategic partner to scan information from the hyperscalers. The following diagram depicts the high-level architecture which heavily depends on the LeanIX Integration API.

One Unified Platform

Cloud Intelligence is built upon the same Platform Capabilities as the EA Suite. This means that the user interface, Diagrams and Reports, LeanIX Smart Xplore, Configurable Data Model and much more are also built into the Cloud Intelligence workspace. As such the barrier to entry for those users who are already familiar with the EA Suite is very low. In addition, as new functionalities and advancements are made in one product - as it is suitable, these same developments are also translated to the other product.

Cloud Intelligence Integration with EA Suite

Cloud provides an automatic integration from your Cloud Intelligence workspace into your EA Suite. This supplies strategic information with a view on what is important for the EA users to know regarding Cloud, this integration provides a more complete picture within your EA workspace.
