Gartner declares Mediapps a leading European Information Aggregator
in the Enterprise Information Portal Market

A recent Gartner Consulting study positions Mediapps as “a leading European Information Aggregator in the European Enterprise Information Portal marketplace”. The report highlights Mediapps’ “unique positioning in Europe as both a portal software editor and an Infomediary”.

1. Mediapps strengths include:
· Net.Portal, a packaged portal software product with easy to use personalisation features
· Net.Semantic, a natural language search engine using a high-level semantic algorithm
· Product available in 5 languages
· Availability in the Java, Microsoft and Lotus environments
· 30 000 Business to Business information sources
· 100 information packages segmented by industry sector and profession
· Access to internal databases and enterprise applications

According to Pascal Hureau, Director Gartner Consulting, “Mediapps’ strengths include its numerous content sources as well as specific know-how in the Infomediary space. In addition, its partnerships are well selected and well structured”.

Hureau adds “Mediapps’ evolving positioning on Enterprise portal solutions with Enterprise Application Integration capabilities is consistent with end users’ medium term projects that require more integration with legacy systems and e-business applications within enterprise portals.”

The Enterprise Portal

According to Gartner, “portal products continue to be one of the hottest Internet technologies. Enterprise portals serve an enterprise’s employees, customers, suppliers and distributors for the sole benefit of the enterprise and its related communities and industry. Enterprise portals have become a key component of unified applications access, information management and knowledge management, both within enterprises and between enterprises and their trading partners, channel partners and customers”.

E-Business software publisher and Infomediary, Mediapps is the European leader in enterprise portals. Their flagship product, Net.Portal, is an intranet and Internet portal generator.
