Netscape Communications Corp. has added to its browser offerings by this week announcing Meta-Directory 1.0, a product suite that allows legacy integration of corporate data into intranet and extranet applications.
Netscape is working closely with ISOCOR on the advanced meta-directory technology needed for Meta-Directory 1.0.
Available later in the year, Meta-Directory will make disparate directory information from human resource systems, databases, messaging systems, network operating system (NOS) directories and other corporate systems available to e-commerce applications, the company said. It will include Netscape Directory Server, the meta-directory server and a number of key connectors.
"Netscape and ISOCOR are working together to provide a comprehensive meta-directory solution. We believe this will help accelerate corporate deployment of meta-directories as customers increasingly embrace the solution as an industry standard," said David Weiden, vice president of directory and security products at Netscape.
