IBM has expanded its WebSphere Portal software portfolio with the availability of two additional business-ready packages.
The "accelerators" can be easily added to a customer's portal to drive online training projects and automate key business processes, IBM said.
The two new accelerator packages provide training, development and education projects through an IBM Lotus Sametime Web conference.
IBM Learning Accelerator enables businesses to provide personalised online training within the context of employees' ongoing activities.
IBM Business Process Accelerator is designed to simplify and improve the adoption of business processes by using the role-based, personalised user interface of WebSphere Portal, to improve both implementation and end user response times for business processes.
The two new accelerators add to the collection already available, including IBM Self-Service Accelerator for human resources tasks, IBM Dashboard Accelerator, IBM Collaboration Accelerator for team collaboration, IBM Content Accelerator for building and managing websites, and IBM Enterprise Suite Accelerator which supports multiple portal projects.
