LeanIX Helps NÜRNBERGER Establish Transparency Across Its Microservices Landscape


Insurance firm NÜRNBERGER Versicherung has deployed the LeanIX Microservice Intelligence solution to support its cloud transformation.

NÜRNBERGER has deployed LeanIX Microservice Intelligence with the LeanIX Enterprise Architecture Suite to create transparency over its application and microservice landscape, and to establish governance while transitioning from mainframe to microservices.

LeanIX Microservice Intelligence automatically creates a microservices catalog that integrates with DevOps toolchains to provide 360-degree transparency of all cloud-native applications, ownership and dependencies. Knowing where microservices are deployed, who is responsible and how they deliver business value enables Product IT teams to control complexity, boost developer productivity and build reliable software.

As the basis for Implementing its cloud migration strategy, NÜRNBERGER uses Microservice Intelligence to automate the documentation and provide the distinction between functional enterprise architecture and technical microservices landscape to improve stakeholder alignment.

“LeanIX has provided us with a connector that allows us to automatically record both our CI/CD pipeline and a Kubernetes cluster and display them in Microservice Intelligence,” said Andreas Michler, enterprise architect at NÜRNBERGER. “We initially focused exclusively on the architecture components that we rebuilt. Everything that runs via the pipeline or is deployed in Kubernetes is also 100% documented in Microservice Intelligence.”

NÜRNBERGER operates in the life, private health, property/casualty and auto insurance segments, primarily in Germany and Austria.
