WebSphere Portal offerings are packaged so that a single part number delivers programs installable on all supported platforms. The National Language Versions of these programs contain the identified translated languages. Both the platform and language used are specified during product installation.

WebSphere Portal Enable

The WebSphere Portal Enable offering is the IBM entry-level offering and provides maximum flexibility for customers. The offering provides core portal capabilities and is attractive to customers who need to get a portal up and running quickly. Based on the WebSphere Portal framework, it can be upgraded to the IBM advanced portal offering as the installation moves through the portal lifecycle.

WebSphere Portal Enable provides common services that include:

  • Connectivity and integration to allow access to enterprise data and applications, external newsfeeds, or Web data and applications
  • Presentation and administration to enable computing desktop customization to match your own work patterns and needs, while providing:
    • Improved productivity with access to enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and supply chain management (SCM) enterprise applications.
    • Increased security features that include an authentication layer to provide controlled access to the portal, with user information stored in a Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directory.
  • Customized content publishing and document management to improve the currency of portal content and the value of files shared by portal users
  • WebSphere Portal Productivity Components to view, create, convert, and edit basic documents, spreadsheets, and presentation files from the same portal interface used to interact with information, applications, and people across their business
  • Sample Java™ applications as well as advanced application development tools

Create content geared toward your visitors

Now you can build a Web site that allows users to select which applications they view and how they want to view them. Your site becomes easier to use. Irrelevant content is filtered out and pertinent content can be quickly located.

The content publishing feature in WebSphere Portal Enable gives business users the tools to manage content for WebSphere Portal and other Web sites. This simple Web content management technology helps to increase business user productivity and site appeal by taking some of the burden off of the IT staff and empowering non-technical users to quickly create Web-specific content. Combined with personalization rules, content on the site can be timely and more relevant.

The WebSphere Portal Document Manager provides a way for portal users to share, organize, and edit files of all types ranging from documents to spreadsheets within the Portal community. This communication enhancer offers category subscription services, simple approval processes for file contribution, automatic dialog boxes for contributing Portal search, versioning so that users can track the evolution of a piece of content, and access control for managing viewing privileges of different content items.

Improve the productivity of users executing business processes

Text editing and spreadsheet functions are critical to many business processes, however, these functions are not integrated with other systems and expensive to maintain with existing solutions.

Provided with WebSphere Portal, WebSphere Portal Productivity Components allow users to view, create, convert, and edit basic documents, spreadsheets, and presentation files from the same portal interface used to interact with information, applications, and people across their business. The Productivity Components are integrated with the content publishing feature so files can be indexed, categorized, and searched by other portal users.

Reduce integration cost

IT cost reduction can be achieved with easy-to-use cooperative portlets, based on click-to-action technology. Click-to-action allows the user to perform portlet or application integration on the screen by clicking on information in one portlet and automatically transferring the information to another portlet for processing.

Another cost savings can be realized with the Portal Application Integrator which allows business users to define the interaction a portlet will have with the objects from Enterprise Information Systems, relational databases, and Domino™ databases.

  • Enterprise Information Systems:
    • Oracle
    • Hyperion
    • PeopleSoft
    • SAP
    • Domino
    • Siebel
    • JDBC
  • Relational databases:
    • DB2®
    • Oracle
    • SQL Server

Program technical support: Technical Support of a program product will be available for a minimum of three years from the general availability date, as long as your Software Maintenance is in effect. This Technical Support allows you to obtain assistance (via telephone or electronic means) from IBM for product-specific, task-oriented questions regarding the installation and operation of the program product. Software Maintenance also provides you with access to updates, releases, and versions of the program. Customers will be notified, via announcement letter, of discontinuance of support with 12 months notice. If you require additional technical support from IBM, including an extension of support beyond the discontinuance date, contact your IBM representative or Business Partner. This extension may be available for a fee.

IBM includes one year of Software Maintenance with the initial license acquisition of each program acquired. The initial period of Software Maintenance can be extended by the purchase of a renewal option that is available.
