BackWeb Technologies introduced today
BackWeb for Site Server, a new product designed to extend
core features of the Microsoft Windows NT Server and Site Server platforms.
Based on BackWeb’s Infocenter 4.0, BackWeb for Site Server will take
advantage of Site Server features including personalization and membership,
analysis, search, and push capabilities, the company said.
BackWeb Infocenter 4.0 enables users to develop solutions for delivering
business critical information to employees, customers, and business partners.
“Site Server is an excellent broad-based platform for corporations to
build, deploy and maintain cost effective Web environments,” said Tony
Davis, senior vice president of product development at BackWeb. “BackWeb
Infocenter will allow customers to very quickly build sophisticated
knowledge push solutions that capitalize on Microsoft’s core competencies
in building platform technologies.”
BackWeb added that its Polite Server can also be employed to further
enhance the BackWeb for Site Server solution. Polite Server’s push delivery
capabilities are designed to help companies minimize push network traffic
and assist remote users.
In conjunction with today’s announcement, BackWeb unveiled a partnership
with front office software solutions developer Scopus Technology. Under the strategic
alliance, BackWeb’s Infocenter will be integrated with Scopus’ customer
care systems, and Scopus will resell BackWeb as part of its call center,
sales force automation, and customer service solutions.
BackWeb said this is the first of a series of partnerships it expects to
secure with application software providers to develop various market
applications optimized for BackWeb.
