OnePage has announced the first customer deployment of its technology at Nikkei Business Publications, a large publishing organization in Japan. Nikkei has deployed Content Connect as a means of integrating content feeds from its various magazine properties into personalized portals.
OnePage plans to adapt its technology for publishing information to wireless devices. "Once we get [the content] into a neutral XML format, we can wirelessly enable the information as well. Just as you can extract content to make a [a component of a portal], you can also write it to a wireless gateway," Marubio said.
In a similar vein, enterprise portal vendor DataChannel plans to unveil an extension kit next month for integrating enterprise application data into the company's DataChannel Server XML-based portal. The DataChannel Server extension kit is designed to access data locked in enterprise applications, such as ERP and CRM, and legacy data stores. DataChannel's portal will leverage the EAI (enterprise application integration) connector to deepen integration with applications and systems, using it as a backbone to access rules for data extraction and management, said Eric Varness, director of product marketing at DataChannel, in Bellevue, Wash.
