Integrates Portal-Oriented Content Management, Enhances Usability And Extends Support for Languages and Platforms
ISLANDIA, N.Y., November 22, 2004 – Computer Associates International, Inc. (NYSE: CA) today announced CleverPath Portal r4.7, an advanced solution for simplifying the personalized delivery of complex business process information to IT and business users. Providing out-of-the-box support for 10 languages, CleverPath Portal r4.7 is designed to ease portal implementations and optimize the distribution of information assets across the enterprise.
The Massachusetts Department of Education is using CleverPath Portal to support its web-based Virtual Education Space, which provides tools and resources to the 386 Massachusetts school districts ensuring the effectiveness of the state´s public school programs.
“Our Virtual Education Space provides a strategic resource for teachers, students and administrators across the state, and CA´s CleverPath Portal has been instrumental in our success,” said Massachusetts´ Education Commissioner David P. Driscoll. “Release 4.7 is even easier to understand and use, which will ensure that users at all skill levels can take full advantage of all it has to offer.”
In addition to benefiting “standalone” users of CleverPath Portal, the new version also adds significant value for users of CA´s industry-leading management software — since CleverPath Portal technology is an integral component of popular products such as eTrust Security Command Center, Unicenter Management Portal, and BrightStor Portal.
“As portals become the de facto standard for delivering information to business managers, their continued evolution as enterprise information managers is critical for business and IT users,” said Don LeClair, senior vice president in the office of the CTO at CA. “CleverPath Portal r4.7 simplifies and streamlines core information delivery processes — enabling organizations to deliver relevant content to employees, partners, vendors and consumers inside and outside the enterprise.”
CleverPath Portal r4.7 accelerates business processes while helping ensure conformance with content management best practices. A new content management services workplace enables content owners to easily add, review, modify and approve document-oriented content bound for the CleverPath Portal knowledge library. These pre-configured portlets provide an intuitive interface supporting customers´ specific content management policies and processes.
As a result of both CA´s user-centered design process and an extensive usability study, CleverPath Portal r4.7 also features a number of interface and navigation improvements that provide a more intuitive and consistent user experience.
CleverPath Portal 4.7 is available in Brazilian Portuguese, English, French, German, Italian, Korean, Japanese, Spanish, and Simplified and Traditional Chinese. It also supports the latest versions of Microsoft Windows 2003 Server, Linux on IBM mainframes and the Java Runtime Environment.
