Media network Red Herring Communications Tuesday chose Plumtree Software Corp. from a pool of corporate portal specialists to fortify its company-wide intranet.
Plumtree will license its brand of corporate portal to provide a single Web interface to the applications and information that Red Herring's workers use daily, including Oracle ERP, Microsoft Exchange and various legacy databases.
Red Herring's portal gathers data from a variety of applications and provides all employees with information and Internet services to aid many facets of the business -- editorial research, subscriptions and human resources.
Users tailor the portal to create a personalized experience by selecting from a menu of Plumtree Portal Gadgets, which are modular portal components that embed in a portal page key information and services from enterprise applications and Internet sites.
The Plumtree platform also features the industry's first Massively Parallel Portal Engine, which assembles these services simultaneously for high-performance.
Red Herring said it evaluated several portal solutions but chose the Plumtree Corporate Portal 4.0 because of its speedy response.
Plumtree has a host of vendor partners, including IBM, Microsoft, SAP and Screaming Media, which allow their services to become integrated into the software maker's plug-in components, or gadgets.
