Osborne Clarke has advised Deutsche Telekom Capital Partners (DTCP) on the sale of LeanIX to SAP. 

Google Maps for enterprise IT: LeanIX's software management solution currently enables more than 1,000 customers worldwide to visualise their entire IT application landscape, identify obsolete applications, define a target state more easily and plan new IT architecture roadmaps. In addition, the company, founded in 2012 by Jörg Beyer and André Christ, recently launched an AI assistant that helps companies use generative artificial intelligence to manage their IT landscapes. The goal is to increase the degree of automation in controlling IT landscapes.

Now the software group SAP is planning to take over the Bonn-based software management company. The takeover is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter, the companies announced last Thursday. The parties did not disclose the purchase price. SAP hopes the takeover will strengthen its portfolio for business transformations.

The Osborne Clarke team that advised Deutsche Telekom Capital Partners, led by Nicolas Gabrysch, consisted of Konstantin Ewald (IT), Benedikt Hülsmann and Victor Robertz (both Corporate).
