Share Article

The software architects organization creates a new portal to meet the needs of its growing community.

Since our inception three years ago, IASA members and chapters have grown exponentially year after year. Our services, web-based and otherwise, have grown with them. We found in the past year that the BEA portal platform did not provide the kind of robust functionality we needed to support our members and additionally required much too high an investment in infrastructure.

The International Association of Software Architects (IASA) is proud to announce the launch of its newly revamped website, http://www.iasahome.org. IASA experienced a larger than expected increase in membership and subsequent chapter activities over the past 12 months, causing the association to quickly outgrow its existing website. To better meet the needs of the IT Architecture community, IASA developed the new website, which in reality is its own network, allowing each IASA chapter to have its own individualized website.

IASA made the decision to switch the technology platform to Liferay, a provider of enterprise-class, open source portal and content management system. Paul Preiss, the President of IASA, explains the reason behind the change: “Since our inception three years ago, IASA members and chapters have grown exponentially year after year. Our services, web-based and otherwise, have grown with them. We found in the past year that the BEA portal platform did not provide the kind of robust functionality we needed to support our members and additionally required much too high an investment in infrastructure.”

IASA found the perfect solution with Liferay 4.1. The product allows each of the IASA chapters and virtual communities to have their own individualized website as a part of a broader IASA network. IASA can now provide new services for members such as a job board, online training, webcasts and virtual communities. The IASA team is very impressed with the quality of the portal and hope members realize IASA’s commitment to providing them a seamless user experience.
