Application Portfolio Manager Beta

Categorize, Manage & Share Heroku Applications easily Starting at ~$0/hour.

Categorize & Better Manage Applications

When you deploy Heroku applications they require unique names. This often leads to a cryptic name which does not always indicate to you or others what the application is. By providing metadata about the app, like a nickname, tags, or even appending release tags, your Heroku application portfolio becomes more manageable.

Document Apps by Tags, Type & Access

A common technique for enhancing discoverability of applications, services and systems is the use of Tags. Portfolio Manager lets you add Tags to Heroku Applications, providing the metadata required to easily sort, filter and find them later on. This also aids in the ongoing maintenance of applications once they age or are no longer in use. Instead of wondering what they do, why they were written etc., simply check the Tags and voila!

Configure & Categorize in one Tool

Many Add-Ons provide certain features but require you to swap back to the application to change app configuration or settings. Portfolio Manager not only lets you Categorize, Tag, Share & Document apps, but within the same administrative dashboard, lets you modify the underlying Heroku configuration & settings; No need to swap back and forth.

Free Application Portfolio Dashboard

Categorizing, Tagging & Sharing applications becomes even more beneficial with the Free App Dashboard provided in the Add-On. This can be optionally deployed into the same Heroku app hosting the Add-On and shared with others. Visiting the App Dashboard displays the Categories and associated Heroku apps you specified, allowing users to browse and open each application.

Easy Access through the Apps Dashboard

Have you ever shown a demo or POC to management or sales reps and then been asked afterwards if they could get access to it? Well, Portfolio Manager lets you check a few boxes and let those apps show up on the Portfolio Dashboard. This doesn’t affect or change anything about the underlying Heroku App permissions, it simply flags it to show up on the public dashboard for easy access. Make your Sales Reps & Management happy without changing a thing about the apps themselves. Everyone wins!

Add Documentation to each Application

Most documentation is online or referenced using a link to the PDF, DOCX etc. Unfortunately, this doesn’t help the developer or PM who comes along 2 years after the app was developed. Softtrends Portfolio Manager add-on lets you attach documents to the app so you can provide operational or developer-centric information for others.
