Las Vegas, NV, USA -- CMS Watch, a buyer-oriented analyst firm that evaluates content technologies, released research today at the Shared Insights' Portals and Collaboration Conference finding that Oracle is shifting its enterprise portal emphasis from its traditional Oracle Portal product to its new Oracle Web Center Suite. Meanwhile, BEA is increasingly promoting its AquaLogic portal platform over longstanding WebLogic Portal product.
This analysis stems from the 3rd edition of CMS Watch's Enterprise Portals Report, released today, which evaluates 15 major portal offerings.
CMS Watch contributing analyst Janus Boye served as lead analyst. "If you want to buy an enterprise portal from Oracle circa mid-2007, you have two choices, neither of which seems ideal," said Boye. "Oracle Web Center Suite is brand new while Oracle Portal has been languishing a bit." Boye added, "Publicly Oracle is walking a fine line: still committed to both products, but also positioning Web Center as the platform for the future, while expecting that some licensees will even purchase both platforms." CMS Watch research findings include:
"While 'PortalMania' may have subsided, the portal marketplace remains lively," noted CMS Watch founder Tony Byrne. "Among the fast-evolving open source portal offerings and a bevy of commercial alternatives, buyers have plenty of choices," Byrne added.
The Enterprise Portals Report closely examines all the major enterprise portal suppliers, including BEA, Broadvision, eXo, IBM, Jetspeed, Liferay, Microsoft, Oracle, Plone, Red Hat JBoss, SAP, Sun, and Vignette.
CMS Watch researches content technologies primarily by de-briefing enterprise customers to find usage trends and patterns. CMS Watch analysts interviewed dozens of enterprise portal customers around the world for the latest edition of this report.
