Red Hat has announced the availability of Red Hat JBoss Portal 6.1, the latest version of its lean portal technology with new mobile capabilities and integration to popular social media websites.
Lean portals offer organizations a lightweight, high-performance self-service solution that can be easily integrated into existing systems and meets a wide range of user interface requirements.
The new platform allows enterprises to accelerate self-service application development and integrate information, people, and processes to create an experience that is seamless with a customer’s everyday activities.
JBoss Portal provides enterprises with the ability to accelerate the creation and deployment of high-impact, innovative Web applications that offer real-time, personalized engagement with their customers, partners, or citizens.
With its lightweight architecture, JBoss Portal is well suited to meet a variety of needs and use cases, including extending market reach with external websites, delivering online customer self-service, acting as the foundation for a white-label product, or empowering partner networks, the company said.
By integrating with Facebook, Google+, and Twitter, Red Hat allows users to log-in using their third-party credentials as well as share information and updates between the portal application and the social media website.
A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) describes how JBoss Portal supports accessibility for people with disabilities in compliance with Section 508 of the U.S. Workforce Rehabilitation Act.
Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager, Middleware, Red Hat, says lean portal technologies offer a high degree of flexibility to customize a unique solution, with straightforward integration that helps extract new value from existing systems as well as stability and performance at enterprise scale.
