Cost reports are a powerful tool that helps organizations to understand the cost of their IT landscape. LeanIX Cost Reports provide an overview of which business capabilities are supported by which applications, which projects are running, which providers are being used, and how much they cost annually.
By using the Cost Reports, you can analyze the cost allocation per business capability, application, and provider, and identify areas where costs can be reduced. For example, if you find that a particular application is supporting multiple business capabilities, you can analyze the cost of each business capability and identify areas where costs can be optimized.

LeanIX provides two default Cost reports:
- The Business Capability Cost Report gives you an overview of which business capabilities are supported by which applications and how much this support costs annually. This report helps you understand the cost allocation per business capability and analyze where costs could be reduced.
To discover which Applications are causing expenses for a particular Business Capability, you can click on the relevant bar graph to obtain additional information. You can also access the corresponding Application Fact Sheets by clicking on the left-hand link within the window that appears.
The Provider Cost Report shows you the cost allocation per provider either as a pie chart or in a table view. This report helps you understand how much you are spending on each provider and identify areas where you could negotiate better rates.
You can navigate to the respective Provider Fact Sheet by simply clicking on the graph.
The World Map Report of LeanIX is a tool that provides an overview of which IT components and applications are used by user groups and their location on a world map. LeanIX provides three default World Map reports: Application Sourcing report, the Application Usage report, and the IT Component Location report.
The Application Usage report focuses on which applications are being used by which user groups. It allows users to identify which applications are popular and which are not being used as much, providing insight into how IT resources are being utilized. This report is also region-specific, allowing users to zoom in on specific areas of interest.
The Application Sourcing report allows users to determine which IT components are being used by which user groups. It provides insight into the relationship between IT components and user groups, allowing users to identify patterns and trends in IT usage. By zooming in on specific regions, users can get a better understanding of the usage of IT components and applications within that area.
The IT Component Location report shows which IT components are being used by which countries or locations. This report allows users to see where IT resources are being utilized and can help identify any areas where IT resources may be underutilized. As with the other reports, users can zoom in on specific regions to gain more detailed information.
You can visualize your data either by Country or Location for better understanding.
Further, you can Zoom into a particular region by selecting a region from the Zoom drop-down menu. Alternatively, you can use the ‘+' / '-’ icons for zooming in and out.
