New value in WebSphere Portal V5.1

Virtual portals: Create multiple portal sites on one instance of WebSphere Portal. Each site has its own URL, look and feel, pages, users and groups, and search index. All sites share the same WebSphere Application Server (WAS) instance, installed portlets, and document libraries. With virtual portal, companies can centrally manage many different portals targeted to different constituencies in or outside of their organization, saving money on portal management, yet offering variety and customization to users. Each virtual portal can also be administered discretely — with assignable administrator roles.

Business process integration: WebSphere Portal V5.1 includes a new process choreographer for building work flow processes as services that can be integrated into a person's portal experience. Portal's navigation paradigm is now not only role-based, but also includes activities in progress that are available to users through the new My Task portlet. Portal now combines people and applications at a process level, so that integration across applications and people is that much more seamless.

Content management: DB2 Content Manager runtime is included to manage all forms of content (Web, e-mail, documents, digitized paper documents, images, audio/video, text messages) consistently. A content management repository adds functionality over a database alone by providing the interface to not just store data, but to provide the structure to quickly access and associate that data with the business processes that leverage it.

WebSphere Portal Enable

The WebSphere Portal Enable offering provides maximum flexibility for customers. Core portal capabilities attract customers who need to get a robust portal up and running quickly. Based on the WebSphere Portal framework, it can be upgraded to the IBM advanced portal offering as customer needs evolve 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 Web content management 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
  • Personalization engine that allows portal managers to customize content to specific users based on their role; also campaign management features for running e-mail campaigns
  • Sample Java™ applications as well as advanced application development tools
  • New support for virtual portals, allowing multiple portals to be hosted on the same WebSphere Portal server, with support for discrete administration and directories
  • Business process integration functionality, where workflow processes can be built with the new process choreographer and accessed on-the-fly with the included My Task portlet

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 located quickly.

The Web content management feature in WebSphere Portal Enable gives business users the tools to easily create and manage content for their portal. This technology helps to increase employee productivity by taking some of the burden from the IT staff and empowering non-technical users to create specific Web content. Content that is frequently updated by subject matter experts and personalized improves the return rate of portal users and helps to increase sales revenue.

The WebSphere Portal document manager provides a way for portal users to share, search, organize, and edit files of all types ranging from documents to spreadsheets within the portal community. This productivity enhancement offers the following:

  • Simple approval processes for file contribution
  • Instant messaging integration so that people can discuss documents with authors
  • Versioning so that users can track the evolution of a piece of content
  • Inline editing of documents with desktop applications or productivity components
  • 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 WebSphere Portal document manager so that files can be indexed, categorized, and searched by other portal users.

WebSphere Portal also includes a new process choreographer for building work flow processes as services that can be integrated into a person's portal experience. Portal's navigation paradigm is now not only role based, but also includes activities in progress that are available to users through the new My Task portlet. Portal now combines people and applications at a process level, so that integration across applications and people is that much more seamless.

Leverage information by managing content

Integration of a content management repository provides the infrastructure for portal applications to easily store, retrieve, and manage content minimizing lost or inaccessible information. In the past, a content repository typically was optimized for one specific type of content, and one specific type of application, and user population. In the on demand business world, compartmentalization of content into separate silos is no longer a viable option. All content types share similar needs for search, access control, workflow, collaboration, and personalization. Leveraging a common repository for managing content across all your portal applications can keep information — the lifeblood of your organization — flowing and lowers deployment costs. When portal users need to access other content repositories, WebSphere Portal V5.1 provides integration to them via one of our many IBM Business Partners. IBM is also actively participating in the development of open standards for accessing content management repositories, which will simplify the access and sharing of content across an organization.

Reduce integration costs

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 WebSphere Portal application integrator that allows business users to define the interaction a portlet will have with the objects from enterprise information systems, relational databases, and Domino™ databases.

Virtual portals can also now be created, allowing multiple portal sites on one instance of portal. Each site has its own URL, look and feel, pages, users and groups, and search index. All sites share the same WAS instance, installed portlets, and document libraries. With virtual portals, companies can centrally manage many different portals targeted to different constituencies in or outside of their organization, saving money on portal management yet offering variety and customization to users. Each virtual portal can be administered discretely as well, with assignable virtual portal administrator roles.

WebSphere Portal Extend

The WebSphere Portal Extend offering is positioned as the offering of choice for customers who are deploying multiple B2C, B2B, and B2E portals. It features a powerful teaming and collaboration functionality, the ability to search across an expanded variety of data stores, Web analysis to obtain and leverage critical knowledge, and a broker across content sources.

Building on the portal framework in the WebSphere Portal Enable offering, the WebSphere Portal Extend offering adds the following features:

  • Parallel, distributed, and heterogeneous searching capability
  • Individual and shared team workspaces with built-in collaborative capabilities
  • Collaborative functional services for other portlets
  • Web site analytics
  • Portal metrics

Increase productivity through robust collaboration capability

WebSphere Portal features the Lotus collaboration center. Collaboration center eliminates the barriers between applications as well as the barriers to productivity. It allows organizations to build and deploy collaborative intranet and employee portals. Communication and collaboration tools licensed separately for WebSphere Portal Enable or included in WebSphere Portal Extend can be integrated immediately to give all members of the organization instant access to the people and information they need.

Pre-installed portlets integrated with the employee portal can help:

  • Find people easily using an employee directory that includes reports-to chain information. (Software included in WebSphere Portal Extend.)
  • Set up and administer Web conferences, group calendars, and assigned tasks.
  • Create and manage customizable online workplaces for individuals, teams, or communities within a personalized portal. (Software included in WebSphere Portal Extend.)
  • Send and receive instant messages from colleagues, and track their online availability. (Software included in WebSphere Portal Extend.)
  • Discuss and collaborate about documents stored in document libraries. (Software included in WebSphere Portal Extend.)

IBM Lotus offers award-winning collaboration technology and WebSphere Portal allows people to leverage that technology in conjunction with their portal. Portal users work together and act on information as they execute business processes more effectively.

Save time with extended search functionality

WebSphere Portal Extend provides extended search capabilities that allow you to search across an expanded variety of data stores:

  • DB2 Universal Database®
  • Oracle
  • Lotus Notes® and Lotus Domino databases
  • Popular Web search engines
  • Text or HTML documents

Optimize portal effectiveness

Portal Extend includes robust Web analysis technology to help you obtain and leverage critical knowledge to optimize your portal. This offering enables you to:

  • Make informed decisions about Web initiatives
  • Maximize B2E, B2C, and B2B Web site effectiveness for IT, marketing, and sales executives
  • Capture, store, measure, report, and chart Web site visitor trends and preferences

  • Features for vision impaired users:
    • Supports interfaces commonly used by screen readers (Windows only)

IBM Electronic Services

IBM Global Services has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to put you on the road to higher systems availability. IBM Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that provides you with an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support on the IBM eServer. You should benefit from greater system availability due to faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. IBM Electronic Services is comprised of two separate but complementary elements: IBM Electronic Services news page and IBM Electronic Service Agent™.

IBM Electronic Services news page provides you with a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used by customers to access IBM Internet services and support. By using the news page, it enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The IBM Electronic Service Agent is no-additional charge software that resides on your IBM eServer system. It is designed to proactively monitor events and transmit system inventory information to IBM on a periodic customer-defined timetable. The IBM Electronic Service Agent tracks system inventory, hardware error logs, and performance information. If the server is under a current IBM maintenance service agreement or within the IBM warranty period, the Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to provide proactive service that maintains higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent will be made available to IBM service support representatives when they are helping answer your questions or diagnosing problems.
