The upgraded 4.0 platform leverages Tibcos EAI (enterprise application integration) capabilities with a new feature, called Integration Designer, that makes it possible for Tibcos portal to talk to about 200 disparate applications. As a result users can aggregate information from different operational systems to interact with those applications and collaborate with users of those systems, according to company officials, in Palo Alto, Calif. ActivePortal 4.0 is itself a user integration platform that provides companies along with their employees, partners and customers a single interface into their business.
Version 4.0 adds Web services support and integration with Tibcos workflow and business process management functionality. The latest iteration of ActivePortal can convert standards-based Web services into viewable portal content and interfaces. Likewise, the software will also convert its own content and services into Web services, so they can be syndicated to other devices, according to officials.
