According to Sanjay Chikarmane, senior vice president and general manager technology solutions at SAP, 'portals have evolved into critical information hubs from which companies can deploy more application functionality to a broader set of users, including externally.'
Chikarmane said the SAP NetWeaver Portal enables users to create their own information not just for other employees, but for suppliers, customers or the general public as well '” all via the Web. 'And with these two new applications from OpenText, users will realise even greater customer experiences by combining key applications with the right content.'
'Given the explosion of content across organisations, SAP NetWeaver Portal is an essential tool for efficiently managing all that content,' Patrick Barnert, vice president, SAP Solutions, OpenText, said.
'These latest solutions tap our extensive knowledge and experience in working with SAP applications and customers to make it even easier for organisations to gain maximum benefit from their portal investments.'
According to SAP, its portal strategy is an important part of its goal to reach one billion people by 2015, and Chikarmane says its flagship NetWeaver Portal component has been seeing strong adoption among SAP customers, reaching a milestone of 10,000 live deployments earlier this year.
