Scottish Water looks after Scotland's most precious natural resource. The company employs more than 4000 people in order to provide 1.44 billion liters of water per day, and take away 983 million liters.

Enterprise Architecture (EA) has been a part of Scottish Water for several years, with the organization first implementing iServer in 2011. However, in line with their Standard procurement policy, the Digital Strategy and Architecture team re-evaluated the various EA tools on the market to guarantee that they continue to get the most out of the tools they use.

Having evaluated a number of industry leading EA tools, Scottish Water selected iServer as best able to meet its requirements.  Given the breadth of activities undertaken by Scottish Water’s EA practice, iServer offered the functionality needed to cover a broad range of use cases, both current and future. The iServer roadmap matched well with Scottish Water’s digital strategy and provided a familiar Microsoft user interface.

“Orbus Software has supported us for a decade, offering outstanding customer service alongside an incredibly flexible and durable Enterprise Architecture tool.” Said Paul Douglas, Lead Enterprise Architect at Scottish Water.
