BackWeb Revs Portal Server
The 2.0 version provides offline access to applications and information aggregated through a company's portal or extranetWith the goal of providing offline access to disconnected portals, BackWeb Technologies Inc. announced today the second generation of its ProactivePortal Server. With the launch of ProactivePortal 2.0, BackWeb is also formally launching itself as a company.
The 2.0 version provides offline access to applications and information aggregated through a companys portal or extranet. ProactivePortal logs onto a portal on behalf of the user. The software then analyzes the HTML pages it receives and sends out OTML tags - BackWebs proprietary integration technology. The OTML determines what information needs to be taken offline, what doesnt, and where ProactivePortal needs to drill down through links to provide deeper information, like retrieving a full document for viewing offline.
