Open Text Brings Livelink Workspaces, Content to Portals

Aug 26, 2003

Open Text Corporation, provider of Livelink collaboration and content management software for the enterprise, has introduced a new product, called Livelink UNITE Anywhere, intended to make all the capabilities of Livelink accessible within any commercially available portal. Customers can create tailored window views in a portal that offer access to Livelink's collaborative tools, workspaces, and content.

Livelink UNITE Anywhere is an extension of Livelink UNITE, which Open Text introduced last year. Livelink UNITE provides virtual workspaces with tailored views of Livelink content for project teams and individuals working in Livelink. UNITE Anywhere is designed to take the same capabilities and extend them into any portal. Customers can create customized views of Livelink within a portal, including specialized workspaces with Livelink content, all designed to meet the specific needs of project teams or individuals. UNITE Anywhere also allows customers to deliver Livelink content in the same way to Web sites or extranets not built on a portal framework.

UNITE Anywhere also offers access to Livelink's brokered search, which lets users submit a single query and receive combined results from multiple Livelink repositories, public and internal search engines, and from other authenticated sites. Livelink UNITE Anywhere is designed to workswith any portal, including Oracle Portal, mySAP Enterprise Portal, Plumtree Corporate Portal, Vignette Application Portal, Netscape iPlanet Portal, Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server, as well as Open Text's own portal, Coreport.  

Other Open Text solutions include Livelink UNITE, which provides tailored views of content inside Livelink; Coreport, a portal that lets users offer access to a range of content and applications based on job functions, departments, distributor networks, or project teams; Livelink Doorways, which bridges content and tools across different repositories and provides centralized access through Livelink; and Livelink for Content Management which lets users create, manage, and publish online content.
