iServer Ideation

Strategically aligned ideas, crowdsourced and delivered on Office 365

What is iServer Ideation?

iServer Ideation enables C-Level executives to engage with the rest of the business by defining strategically aligned challenges. Ideas are then crowdsourced from across the organization, shared, and voted on, before being scored against strategic criteria and prioritized with the help of metrics and dashboards.

Tight two-way integration with iServer directly relates challenges to strategy objects captured in the enterprise architecture repository. At the same time, new ideas are synced into iServer, ready for further analysis.

iServer Ideation is designed and built on top of Office 365, providing everyone with a rich and familiar experience to ideate in, blending seamlessly into existing intranet and digital workplace offerings.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • Highly Customisable yet Intuitive EA Platform

    We are a technology company who develop an IT system that is used within the UK utilities market. The reason for our wishing to implement iServer was twofold, firstly to maintain and track a detailed model of our product and secondly to allow us to implement a TOGAF based architecture function.

  • Flexible, user-friendly tool which is highly configurable and affordable.

    iServer has met our requirements and expectations. Orbus have provided attentive and timely support throughout our relationship. Have seen many of our suggestions for product improvement added to the development pipeline and then added to the iServer product suite. In the past promises of new versions and features were not meeting promised release dates, but over the last couple of years Orbus has done a much better job of delivering against their roadmaps
