WebCenter Portal provides the rich library of components for the development of sophisticated integrated solutions which enable functionality from back-end transactional systems, relevant content and social interactivity to be delivered as a coherent interface for the user.
Ether Solutions has extensive experience in implementing WebCenter Portal solutions, which enables clients to obtain the best from the investment in the technology.
Oracle WebCenter Portal is a platform and composite applications solution that enables a modern and intuitive user experience for the enterprise with a web browser.
The solution comes with a wide range of components to deliver functionality through “Task Flows”. Functionality can be amended or supplemented with the development of custom “Task Flows”.
Oracle Applications Development Framework (ADF) is an end-to-end Java EE (J2EE) framework that simplifies application development by providing innovative infrastructure services and a demonstrative development experience, it is this technology which is used to create “Task Flows” for WebCenter Portal. Ether Solutions has skills and experience in the development of “Task Flows” with ADF.
As Oracle WebCenter Portal is a complete, open and integrated Enterprise Portal solution, it can be used to implement composite applications and functional “Mash-ups” that utilise the generic social interaction capabilities (i.e. Wiki, Blogs, RSS, Forums, Activity streams), collaboration services and underlying document management repository features, together with existing applications (e.g. e-Business, PeopleSoft, Siebel).
The potential benefits from implementing solutions using Oracle WebCenter Portal are the enormous, they are gained from the streamlined processes which can be implemented for clients, employees and suppliers.
The portal solutions ensure that the right level of information and transactions can be delivered to optimise business processes with support when its needed through the effective engagement of business staff. The traditional definitions of Intranets, Extranets and Web sites all transition to inter-active portals that can be regarded as dashboards of functionality allowing personalised driving of interaction with the business.
The proven features of Oracle WebCenter Portal and the ability for specific custom functionality to be created by Ether Solutions by extending the Portal framework using Oracle ADF, enables world class implementations to be created as Employee Portals, Customer Portals and Supplier Portals, etc.
Oracle WebCenter Portal is available for both an on-premise installation and in the cloud as Oracle WebCenter Portal Cloud service. By using the cloud the software is ready for use which enables the rapid use of collaboration functionality.
