Building a High Performance Employee Self Service Portal with Oracle WebCenter



Please contact us if you're interested in attending ths workshop:

Free, half-day technical workshop

Organisations started with static corporate intranets at the beginning of the “Noughties”, these have been evolving to the Intranet Portal that is common today. The rise in Employee Self Service leverages off this evolution to transform the intranet as a resource in order to deliver the “Contextual workers control panel”. This empowers employees to do their complete job from a single environment covering transactions, document handling, form completion, watching presentations, participating in discussions through to utilising search functionality.

Ether Solutions - the Enterprise Portal specialists and Oracle Gold Partners, together with C2B2 - the independent middleware experts and Application Grid Specialised Oracle Gold Partners, will deliver this workshop to you, allowing you to discover how Oracle WebCenter provides a high performance, highly scalable platform for social intranets and Employee Self Service Portals.
