Vignette updates portal software

The software maker updates its portal product to allow businesses to share information and collaborate within their organizations.

Vignette on Wednesday announced new features for its portal product that include enhanced search functions, unified management of multiple portals and improved document-sharing ability.

The update of Vignette Application Portal, which starts at $50,000, lets companies use content and metadata from anywhere across the organization, from file systems to content and document-management systems.

The new features add group-based document development and "productivity portlets," which can work with existing e-mail applications such as Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes.

The Austin, Texas?based software maker entered the market for so-called business portal software last year when it acquired software company Epicentric. In February, Vignette released a new version of its business software, Vignette Portal Suites.

Vignette claims to be the third-most implemented portal product in the market, ahead of products from Oracle, Novell, Plumtree and Sun Microsystems, citing a Morgan Stanley CIO Survey conducted last month. Only IBM and internally developed products were ranked higher, Vignette said.
