iServer Portal

iServer Portal allows teams to share live repository content with the wider business via an online hub

What is iServer Portal?

iServer Portal is a valuable communication module that allows architects to make repository content available in HTML 5 format through a dynamic, business-friendly, and web-based portal. Using Portal, users can communicate iServer content to the wider business via a platform that is easy to use and accessible from any internet browser. Additionally, browser users, when permitted, can ‘contribute’ to repository content by editing specific information through Portal.

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.

    The vendor is very responsive to any and all issues I report. They take the time to ensure your environment is setup properly the first time. Training was very focused and they were willing to answer all questions I threw at them.

  • 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
