New Release of OpenText Portal Offers Support for Content Aggregation across Content Server, Microsoft SharePoint, Social-centric and Customer-centric Web sites
WATERLOO, ON, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ – OpenText Corporation (NASDAQ: OTEX, TSX: OTC) today announced portal solutions that enable customers to create best in class social-, content- and customer-centric sites. The new OpenText Portal software includes a set of powerful portlets that allow users to easily mashup content from Microsoft SharePoint, OpenText ECM Suite and many other sources into a single, highly flexible and personalized interface, for intranet, extranet, or customer-facing websites.
With social networking tools shifting the way users want to consume information, OpenText Portal (formerly Vignette Portal) gives corporate users a way to easily navigate across applications, create and manage folders and documents while staying in context of their personalized workspace. OpenText Portal provides powerful, yet simple interactive views of people and content that help information workers become more productive.
“Combining complementary technologies from OpenText and Microsoft provides the ability for our customers to create composite mash-up applications and views based on a blend of SharePoint 2010 and OpenText content,” said Kim Akers, General Manager for Global Partners at Microsoft Corp. “The result is increased user productivity, by contextually delivering content from multiple silos into a single source.”
The OpenText Portal plays an important role in the OpenText ECM Suite by providing a richer, more interactive presentation layer, connecting disparate systems and enabling organizations to take advantage of their existing investments. The offering includes several new portlets — web components that can be aggregated in the context of a composite page – that enable information workers to more easily locate, leverage, and collaborate around information.
The portlets for OpenText Content Server, the core content management server within the ECM Suite, include an activity feed portlet, a navigation portlet as well as a federated search portlet:
