Hummingbird Communications Ltd. announced their enterprise information portal for the Linux environment. Building on core Hummingbird technologies, the Hummingbird EIP provides a single point of access to all business-critical information and resources including structured and unstructured enterprise data. Beyond access, the Hummingbird EIP works by connecting users to content in context, enabling them to quickly process, filter, and act upon information from any enterprise source. The Hummingbird EIP uses XML as the base data and metadata exchange mechanism between the different EIP components. XML is also leveraged to communicate with applications that work in conjunction with the Hummingbird EIP. The EIP’s “Theme” capability supports multiple levels of user personalization providing organizations with the ability to preserve their corporate identity while allowing knowledge workers to customize their own portal pages. Application integration services enable the EIP to provide users with a centralized, unified, and consistent environment for interactions with all applications. The Hummingbird EIP ships with interfaces to all Hummingbird products, as well as to many other applications using its innovative e-Clip plug-in architecture. Pricing and Availability: The Hummingbird EIP is available immediately. Enterprise pricing starts at US $100,000.
