Ljubljana – The German software company LeanIX has taken over the Slovenian-US owned Cleanshelf, a leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) management provider. By acquiring the San Francisco-based Cleanshelf, LeanIX will become the leading provider with comprehensive solutions in SaaS management.

“Cleanshelf will integrate its product into the LeanIX portfolio. LeanIX has 300 employees and 400 customers including well known brands such as Adidas, Volkswagen and Dropbox. The company offers software solutions to plan and manage IT landscapes in large companies,” Silicon Gardens Fund I, Cleanshelf’s first institutional investor said in a press release on Wednesday.

“Cleanshelf SaaS management and LeanIX’s application portfolio management complement each other perfectly,” LeanIX CEO Andre Christ was quoted as saying by his company.

“For large organizations, the new offering increases the level of automation and thus also the data quality of their application portfolio, which is a permanent challenge with traditional EA [enterprise architecture] tools. Smaller and younger companies can now manage their application portfolio even faster, as they can rely on a direct capture of their SaaS landscape without having to go through a lengthy roll-out,” said Christ.

Cleanshelf founder and CEO Dušan Omerčević will take a new role of VP of Product SaaS Intelligence & Managing Director of Slovenia, Silicon Gardens Fund I said.
