Through the portals
Sterling Software, Inc., has announced the general availability of EUREKA:Portal 2.0, the latest enhancement to the company's EUREKA:Suite family of integrated business intelligence tools. Sterling Software has advanced the industry's first business portal to offer a broader range of personalisation options, easier interoperability with existing systems via XML, and enhanced support for business-to-business implementations. EUREKA:Portal 2.0 provides a single point-of-entry for a broad range of business intelligence and enterprise applications. For IT administrators, it offers a centralised and customisable information interface for every user within an organisation. For business users, it expedites the location, retrieval and organisation of essential business information in an accessible interactive Web environment. Through profiles, EUREKA:Portal allows content administrators to regulate the delivery of appropriate information to each user or workgroup in an organisation. Administrators can set profile parameters that ensure each user or workgroup receives reports that are most relevant to their job requirements and match their security levels. Organisations can also integrate components developed from a wide range of sources including HTML, XML, Java applets, Active X reports, multi-media and more. Users can further personalise EUREKA:Portal by choosing topics of primary interest to them, as well as determine how frequently this information is updated for them. The Newspage allows users to subscribe to information that can track headlines on topics of interest, access personal Internet information sources and integrate with their e-mail and calendaring systems.
