This week Traction Software plans to roll out Release 3.0 of its TeamPage Weblog software, with additions such as extensible authentication, Web services support, and enterprise search-engine compatibility.
“[Weblogs are] a different way of partitioning a substantial chunk of collaboration functionality and reorganizing it to use Weblog-style capture, reporting, and communication,” said Greg Lloyd, president of Traction.
TeamPage 3.0 provides Java code for LDAP and Active Directory plug-ins and the ability to connect to SSO (single sign-on) and micropayment offerings. Other new features include expanded language support, customizable user interfaces, compatibility with enterprise search engines, and SOAP binding capabilities.
Weblogs are going to be used increasing in enterprises – that is the real market opportunity.
