SAN JOSE, Calif., April 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall, BackWeb Technologies (Nasdaq: BWEB), the leading provider of ProactivePortal(TM) technologies for the enterprise, announced today it will showcase its ProactivePortal technology solutions for offline portals at the Delphi Portal Seminar Central in Chicago on April 15 - 16, 2002. The company's exhibit will be located at the entrance to the expo in booth # S2.
"Portal projects are as susceptible as any other IT initiative, and may fail to reach necessary adoption levels during the initial phase of deployment," said Nathaniel Palmer, chief analyst of Delphi Group. "Content alone offers no guarantee of a portal's success, as it only adds value if it is both accessible and accessed by key stakeholders. The ability to instead bring the portal to the users, through measures such as offline access and proactive notification, presents one of the best opportunities for a successful project."
An enterprise-class solution, the BackWeb(R) ProactivePortal Server(TM) can be integrated with any portal and Web-based content to deliver offline access to critical Portal content. BackWeb offline portal technology allows the user to access critical content while disconnected from the Internet-- yet with the same personalized user experience offline as online. This is especially critical for millions of remote users who contribute to a company's bottom line such as executives and sales personnel. These mobile users do not have consistent Internet connections but still require access to critical content on the portal for reaching their business goals.
The Portals Seminar is two days of cutting edge education and a showcase of the top portal solution providers. Delphi's Portals Seminar is dedicated to providing attendees with a complete and thorough understanding of Portals-- with coverage of both technology and business issues. The seminar includes hands-on solution showcase of state-of-the-art technology, access to an array of experts and all new case studies for 2002 of leading Portal projects.
