BroadVision Revamps Flagship Apps

Introduces CPU-based pricing for portal, commerce and content apps

Redwood City, CA  May 16, 2002  BroadVision this week rolled out version 7 of its flagship enterprise business portal applications, which the company described as an integrated, open standards-based family of applications based on BroadVision's personalization, enterprise portal, multi-channel commerce and content management technology.

The company also announced CPU-based pricing for the new applications, two of three of which will be available in June.

BroadVision 7 includes One-To-One Portal 7.0, One-To-One Commerce 7.0 and One-To-One Content 7.0, and the software company said the new versions improve the solution's ease-of-use and add enhanced support for open standards, among other new features.

One-To-One Portal 7.0 allows companies to deploy personalized business-to-employee (B2E), B2B and business-to-consumer (B2C) portals. Companies can use such portals to extend their enterprise information, resources and business processes to employees, partners and customers in a unified, personalized and collaborative way. BroadVision's personalization technology creates a unique view of the portal for individual users based on their preferences, roles and entitlements.

One-To-One Commerce 7.0 is a portal-powered application for automating and managing the sales process over the Internet. The solution enables enterprises to deploy self-service Internet sales channels to serve a variety of audiences, including consumers, business customers and channel partners. The application allows enterprises to deploy commerce processes such as order entry, order status, availability to ship and availability to promise.

Both the portal and commerce include content management and Web publishing features. For customers with advanced content management requirements, One-To-One Content 7.0 offers an XML-based enterprise content management system that is fully integrated with both applications.

In conjunction with the launch of BroadVision 7, the company also announced the availability of CPU-based pricing in addition to BroadVision's existing development/deployment pricing. CPU-based pricing starts at just $60,000 per CPU for One-To-One Portal and One-To-One Commerce, and $40,000 per CPU for One-To-One Content.

The portal and commerce applications are scheduled for general availability by the end of June 2002, with support for Hewlett-Packard HP-UX, IBM AIX, Microsoft Windows 2000 and Sun Solaris Operating Environment. The content solution is scheduled for general availability in the third quarter of 2002.
