Partner Showcase

Building a High Performance Employee Self Service Portal with Oracle WebCenter

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

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