Orbus Software rapidly expands North American operations as demand for Enterprise Architecture platforms soars globally

Global demand for digital transformation has driven Orbus Software to rapidly expand North American operations to serve the needs of large enterprise and government clients in the region. The latest quarter saw a 93% increase in new software bookings and the addition of new enterprise clients in financial services, healthcare, industrials and energy sectors, alongside the appointment of several advisory board members including former executives from Microsoft, Lucid and Atlassian.


With the global digital transformation market set to grow by over 20% in the next six years, the demand for cloud Enterprise Architecture platforms has accelerated, especially in North America. Orbus sits at the center of this transformation ecosystem serving over 150 customers in the region with recent wins including American United Life Insurance, Cook Medical, Northrop Grumman and MISO Energy. To support this expanding customer base Orbus is doubling the size of regional teams with open roles across multiple functions including sales, marketing, partners, professional services and customer success.


As a key part of this investment program and to support global expansion activities the company has also appointed several new advisory board members including:

  • Kirill Tatarinov, Executive Vice Chairman at Acronis, former CEO at Citrix and EVP of Microsoft Business Solutions who will lead the advisory board and provide strategic direction on company, product and cloud transformation areas
  • Dan Cook, CEO at and ex-Chief Revenue Officer at Lucid advising on scaling up go-to-market teams and partner relationships
  • Lou Franco, software business veteran and ex-Principal Engineer at Atlassian and Trello to guide on product and development topics


Michael D’Onofrio, CEO of Orbus Software, commented; “We are investing significantly as part of our global expansion and especially in North America and I am very pleased to welcome Kirill, Dan and Lou to the Orbus team and leveraging their experiences at several of the world’s leading software companies. These growth investments signal our ambition and confidence to lead the market for modern Enterprise Architecture platforms at a time when digital transformation is at the top of C-level executive priorities. Add to this our expanding ecosystem of platform integrations and strategic partnerships with key industry players and we are hugely excited to be working alongside our global clients to deliver on their digital transformation objectives both today and into the future.”


Kirill Tatarinov commented; “I’m excited to be working with Michael and the Orbus executive team to guide customers on their digital transformation journeys and the rapid shift to cloud technologies. Orbus is centrally placed for customers to execute on their technology roadmaps and make the right strategic decisions to build sustainable and resilient digital infrastructure.”


Dan Cook added “I’m thrilled to play a part in the Orbus Software journey. I’ve been incredibly impressed with the success of Orbus globally and the company’s mission to enable customers to architect their digital future,” and Lou Franco concluded “It’s been great working with the Orbus product development teams as we double in size. There’s a ton of opportunity in the digital transformation space right now, and it’s fun to work with a team that’s playing offense.”
