Sun Microsystems Inc. and Vignette Corp. have announced plans to bring to market a joint collaboration solution to address the specialized needs of medium-sized to large organizations. This initiative is based on Sun's internal implementation of the Vignette Business Workspaces collaboration solution, known internally as the SunWeb Collaboration Suite. Together, Sun and Vignette plan to bring to market a packaged, pre-tested, integrated combination of products that leverage the Sun Java Enterprise System, the Java Desktop System and Vignette Business Workspaces collaboration solution.
The planned joint collaboration solution delivers on the promise of an expanded relationship between Sun and Vignette announced in November 2003. Vignette and Sun have deepened their alliance in an effort to help deliver more rapid and sustained business value and efficiencies to customers, including faster time to implementation and increased ROI for Vignette solutions on Sun Java Enterprise System software.
