Portals, while once confused with a Web site or application hub, are now competitive online enterprise resources that provide employees, customers and partners of an organization with highly secure access to relevant, centralized web resources, including applications, informational content, processes, people, and productivity tools -- available at anytime, from anywhere. Enterprise portals provide personalized access to individual users or groups based on unique profiles or roles in order to maximize the effectiveness of the portal for self-service, information sharing, productivity, collaboration and revenue generation. While enterprise portals have been widely adopted by Fortune 1000 companies, SMB companies generally haven't had the capital expenditures or the technical development resources required to deploy them. The EnterConnect 'business-ready' portal suite allows both enterprise and SMB companies to quickly launch and easily manage an affordable enterprise-class portal with few technical resources required for the on-premise version and no technical resources required with the SaaS version.

The EnterConnect 8.8 'business-ready' portal release is standards-based and designed to deliver rapid business value to all constituents, while minimizing project risks and IT resources required. The EnterConnect 8.8 Core Enhancements include:

--  Integrated Microsoft Outlook Exchange into personalized, customizable
    My Pages
--  Campaign and Survey Management
--  Pre-configured portals for employees, teams, customers and partners
--  Rapidly deployable services for integration with on-premise and SaaS
    enabled applications

These 8.8 enhancements complement EnterConnect's existing business-ready core functionality:

--  Web content and digital asset management
--  Collaboration
--  Secure federated search
--  Security
