Description

With WebSphere Portal — Express, you can deploy portals on which portal page organization, and the selection of content and applications on the portal, have been customized for each portal user. WebSphere Portal — Express Plus has all the features of WebSphere Portal — Express and adds team collaboration features. Both products are available with a choice of user-based or processor-based licensing. User- or processor-based licensing can be used for an extranet-, intranet-, or Internet-based portal.

The following features and benefits are available with WebSphere Portal — Express and WebSphere Portal — Express Plus:

  • Enhanced ease-of-use in portal installation and administration
  • A role-based access control model
  • Quicker and easier portal customization through context-sensitive customization tools
  • Enhanced performance, reliability, availability, and serviceability
  • Integrated document management
  • Productivity portlets that allow users to share, view, search, create, and edit basic documents, spreadsheets, and presentations
  • A copy of WebSphere Studio Site Developer for use with the Portal Toolkit

Customers choosing WebSphere Portal — Express or WebSphere Portal — Express Plus can realize substantial improvements in speed and flexibility in the marketplace from the following benefits:

  • Better service to customers and partners through easy-to-use self-service business to business (B2B) and business to customer (B2C) portals that provide information which is both timely and relevant for each portal user
  • Acceleration of time to value realization through simplified portal installation and an expanding community of portlet providers
  • Reduction of business cycle time through improved productivity for both individual employees and project teams
  • Rapid integration of applications and data

These benefits help companies become more responsive to the needs of their customers and trading partners. They establish a competitive differentiation that reduces threats from competitors.

WebSphere Portal — Express

WebSphere Portal — Express provides a single unified workspace in which your employees, trading partners, and customers can easily find and use the applications and information that they need. Its features include the following:

  • Presentation services that let you customize a portal user interface customized to match your needs. You can also configure your portal to present content on different device types, such as laptops and mobile phones.
  • Connectivity services that provide you with access to company data, syndicated content, or other external sources, such as your trading partner's applications.
  • An end-user friendly interface that allows portal users to select which applications they view and how they wish to view them.
  • A portlet API that lets you easily extend portlet function to add new function, applications, and data sources to your portal.
  • A facility for sharing documents across your portal community.

Share documents within your portal community

The document manager is a new set of portlets, with WebSphere Portal — Express, that provides a means for portal users to share, organize, and edit files of all types ranging from documents to spreadsheets within the portal community. Portal users can view, add, delete, and modify documents. A built-in function allows editing of a variety of file formats. You can also use the editor of your choice to modify a document. Additional features include category subscription services, a simple approval process for file contribution, automatic dialog boxes for contributing metadata, integrated search capability, versioning so that users can track the evolution of a piece of content, and access control for managing viewing privileges of different content items. WebSphere Portal — Express' portal document manager provides a cost-effective approach to maximizing the effective use of the intellectual property inherent in your documents by making them more accessible to those that need the information.

Improve the productivity of users executing business processes

Text editing and spreadsheet functions are critical to many business processes. These functions are typically not integrated within other portal solutions and they are expensive to license, deploy, and maintain. New with WebSphere Portal — Express is a set of productivity components that allow portal users to view, create, convert, and edit basic documents, spreadsheets, and presentation files from the same portal interface that they use to interact with information, applications, and people across their business.

For example, a teammate could e-mail you a spreadsheet that you receive in your mail in-box portlet. You can save this spreadsheet in the portal document manager. The productivity components then allow you to view the spreadsheet without the need to launch a separate spreadsheet tool. You make changes to the spreadsheet, save your changes, and distribute the modified spreadsheet to others for viewing, all without launching a spreadsheet tool.

The productivity components functions can also be used by other portlets allowing you to embed text editing and spreadsheet functions in business processes. For instance, on an employee benefits portal, you could place a portlet that has an embedded spreadsheet that calculates projected retirement benefits based on data entered by the portal user. Another example use would be on an insurance company site on which a portlet is placed which has embedded text editing for entry of claim data. The WebSphere Portal — Express productivity components allow you to more easily and economically make text editing and spreadsheet functions an integral part of your business processes within your portal.

Reduce application integration cost

IT cost reduction can be achieved with easy-to-use cooperative portlets, based on Click-to-Action technology. Click-to-Action technology allows business applications to be integrated through the transfer of business information between portlets. For example, with Click-to-Action technology, a portal user can click on a customer's name in a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) portlet. The customer's name and account number are then automatically transferred from the CRM portlet to an Order Tracking portlet. This data transfer integrates the two applications, making it easier for a portal user to check the status of an order for a customer. This integration is accomplished using Click-to-Action technology, which manages the transfer of data between the portlets.

WebSphere Portal — Express Plus

WebSphere Portal — Express Plus contains all the function of WebSphere Portal — Express and adds powerful teaming and collaboration functionality including the following:

  • Document libraries and discussion areas that provide shared access to and collaboration on project documents.
  • A team calendar to keep track of shared calendar events in the team workspace.
  • The ability to manage projects, assign tasks, and track milestones of specific projects or initiatives.
  • The ability to display the online status for portal user names that appear in portlets. To initiate a chat, just right-click the name of a user who is online and choose Chat.

WebSphere Portal — Express Plus also features a collaboration center, which is a set of portlets that make it easier for an organization to build and deploy collaborative intranet and employee portals. Capabilities provided by the collaboration center include the ability to:

  • Create team workspaces from within the portal
  • Display a list of team workspaces of which a portal user is a member
  • Create e-meetings (when combined with Lotus® Sametime® 3.0)
  • Display a list of scheduled or active meetings and view meeting details
  • Find people easily and connect with them instantly using an employee directory that includes reports-to-chain information

Communication and collaboration tools help give all members of the organization instant access to the people and information they need. With award-winning collaboration technology, WebSphere Portal — Express Plus helps portal users work together and act on information as they view it. The benefit to the company can be fewer barriers, greater productivity.

The National Language Versions of WebSphere Portal — Express and WebSphere Portal — Express Plus contain all translated languages. Both the platform and language used are specified during product installation.

To allow customers to protect their investments in user-based license options, a conversion of 20 user-based license options (400 users) of WebSphere Portal — Express or Portal — Express Plus for Multiplatforms V5.0 to one processor-based license option is allowed for the purpose of purchasing a trade-up to WebSphere Portal Enable or Extend for Multiplatforms V5.0. For example, 20 licenses of the WebSphere Portal — Express V5.0 user-based license option qualifies the customer to purchase an upgrade to one processor-based license of WebSphere Portal Enable for Multiplatforms V5.0. A customer's qualification to purchase an upgrade is based on an increment of 400 user licenses. For example, 21 licenses of the WebSphere Portal — Express V5.0 user-based license option still qualifies the customer to purchase an upgrade to only one processor-based license of WebSphere Portal Enable for Multiplatforms V5.0.

The following trade-up part numbers offer a trade-up path and price to an unrestricted WebSphere Portal — Express license from WebSphere Portal restricted use licenses included with business partner and IBM solutions.

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.

Money-back guarantee: If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the program, return it within 30 days from the invoice date, to the party (either IBM or its reseller) from whom you acquired it, for a refund. This applies only to your first acquisition of the program.
