Product Announcement: Plumtree (BEA) G6

Plumtree, recently acquired by BEA, has annonuced the availability of a new version of its portal suite along with some nearly vertical versions of the same, targeting specific audiences such as communities and application developers.
Plumtree's G6 Suites come in three flavors:

  • Portal Solution Suite. Traditional portal.
  • Community Solution Suite. Built for collaborative environments with support for projects and teams.
  • Application Solution Suite. A development oriented suite with an eye on composite application implementation.

Some of the newest features include integration of Fuego's BPM (Business Process Management) technology. (For more about BPM and Fuego's offering, read our most recent review).

The only downer is that Plumtree is not committed to tripping gaily down the UDDI Registry path for application composition. Yet. But the integration of BPM and the offering of targeted suites make this latest release of Plumtree's portal a sweet deal.
We'll be reviewing portals again in 2006, so ya'll come back, ya hear?
