WebEx Eyes Enterprise Customers

WebEx Communications has launched a new version of its Web-conferencing service aimed at large corporate customers.

The offering presents the San Jose, Calif., company's services, including voice, video and rich media conferencing, on a single page, accessible through a single log-in.

Additionally, a new feature allows corporate users to create a "personalized meeting room" with a unique URL that becomes the default meeting address for all of their Web meetings.

A spokesman for WebEx was not immediately available to discuss pricing.

"WebEx Enterprise Edition provides a strong incentive to expand the use of Web communications from departmental to enterprise-wide," said Andy Nilssen, senior analyst and partner at Wainhouse Research.

Nilseen said Web conferencing is starting to gain traction in the enterprise category.

In other WebEx enterprise-related news, the company said its WebEx Web meetings services have been melded into SAP's NetWeaver platorm of integrated business software.

The move gives SAP NetWeaver customers a complete Web services-based system for corporate applications and communications services.

Terms of the deal between WebEx and the German software giant were not disclosed.
