Enterprise Workspaces – Extending SAP NetWeaver Portal Capabilities
Today I would like to share with you the availability of SAP NetWeaver Portal – Enterprise Workspaces 1.1 Service Pack 3.
Enterprise Workspaces allow employees to create personalized, flexible, self-service work environments easier than ever before. It extends the SAP NetWeaver Portal with mobile, social and collaborative capabilities that improve productivity and user experience on multiple devices, with minimal IT dependencies.
Enterprise Workspaces empower employees to create flexible, personalized, self-service work environments that combine business applications and content, with a superior user experience. IT, meanwhile, gets the control it needs to help ensure security and compliance with corporate policies.
Today, more and more users require their content to be available any time, on multiple devices – desktop, tablet, smartphone. Enterprise Workspaces provide an easy and intuitive environment to create workspaces with superior user experience, consumed on multiple devices.
And how about a pre-defined, easily configured, mobile homepage experience? Sounds good, doesn’t it?!
Mobile Homepage is a new entry point for mobile users, with group-specific aggregation of un-structured content and pre-defined applications. Based on the SAP NetWeaver Portal and Enterprise Workspaces infrastructure, you can now configure in minutes, a mobile entry point for your LOBs with content relevant for their daily work (e.g. Company News, Sales Homepage, Marketing Homepage,…). It is delivered as a workspace template with pre-defined and mobile ready modules:
- RSS reader – Enables you to view items in an RSS feed defined by the workspace manager. Swipe through the list to view its items, and tap an item to open it for reading.
- News – Enables you to view web forms and articles.
- Media – Enables you to view a feed of videos and images.
- Application Launcher – Enables you to launch native and web applications. If you try to launch a native application that is not yet installed on the device, you have the option to trigget the installation directly.
- Document List – Enables you to access documents that were pre-defined by the workspaces manager.
Enterprise Workspace bring a unique value to SAP NetWeaver Portal customers with new and exciting social capabilities. With People Explorer, employees can now locate people they are looking for, discover colleagues with shared interests, reach out and connect across hierarchy, and create professional networks to get the work done faster and in a more efficient manner. Together with the SuccessFactors Jam (planned) integration, wiki and forums capabilities, users can easily create professional networks to boost their daily productivity.
I recommend you to look at the overview presentation and SAP note 1760017 for further information. The full list of new Enterprise Workspaces capabilities is available in the Service Pack release notes.
Boost agility, enhance productivity – ANY TIME, ON MULTIPLE DEVICE!
Nice ones as usual!! But do you foresee the Forums (add-on in Portal) for Mobiles (POD) by any chance from SAP? Any plans in that direction?
Currently we are not planning to "mobilize" the forums solution.
