Realize your true portal vision with Oracle WebCenter.

Fishbowl’s Portal Solution Accelerator is a packaged set of software and services that provide a framework to create rich and relevant portal experiences. This framework utilizes the content management and portal capabilities of Oracle WebCenter and enhances them with reusable design, navigation, and portlet components that enable customers to quickly build and launch their desired employee, customer or partner portal.

The digital workplace awaits.

The promise of a digital workplace, one where employees from any location can connect with others, access applications, and find job-related information, has been a major reason why organizations have turned to enterprise portals. However, most portals fail to fulfill on that promise because technology and features receive the focus instead of what users need from the portal. Fishbowl’s Portal Solution Accelerator brings together the best user-specific features of Oracle WebCenter and extends them to further enable mobile access, collaboration, personalization, and user-generated content to create a true, digital workplace where employees are productive and engaged.

Why we’re different.

A flexible, pre-built portal framework.

Whether you are launching a new portal or updating an existing one, Fishbowl’s Portal Solution Accelerator bundles content management and portal features that expedite design, development, and deployment. The flexible framework also provides the foundation for application integration and further portal site creation.

Personalized user experiences.

Fishbowl’s Portal Solution Accelerator includes multifaceted personalization so users see the information most relevant to them. Personalization is configurable by Employer, Type, Role, and Location, and personalization attributes can be applied to content and menu items to further drive personalized user experiences.

Dynamic, distributed content authoring.

Portal Solution Accelerator includes multiple ways for business users to contribute and update content on the portal. Content profiles drive initial and new content creation, while in-place editing tools allow for quick updates of existing content. All content on the portal is managed within a secure repository ensuring version control.

Single-page applications optimize portal performance.

Fishbowl’s Portal Solution Accelerator includes task flows built as single-page applications instead of Oracle ADF. This keeps your portal performing at a high level, and enables the modular build of portal pages as components can be dropped onto pages. Overall, single-page applications provide the best possible user interface and overall user experience for WebCenter-based portals.

A word from our customers.

We’re thrilled with the work that Fishbowl has done to make our portal more user-friendly. The customized, easy to use site is a huge improvement, and our employees are now able to search for information they need more easily and stay up-to-date on the latest news and events.

Manager of Employee Communications, Integrated Health Care Provider

…Our Oracle WebCenter system was in disarray. We were challenged on many fronts including overall implementation, integrating it with our business applications, contributing content, and providing appropriate access for our users. [Fishbowl] provided much needed expertise and ideas on improving our WebCenter Portal user interfaces. This improved the user experience and has lead to quick adoption of the system.

Deputy Director of IT, Major University

This is my first large project being managed with an Agile-like approach…and the Fishbowl Solutions team enabled us to focus on producing working portal features that can be quickly validated. And because it is an iterative build process, we can quickly make changes. This has all lead to the desired functionality we are looking for within our new employee portal based on Oracle WebCenter.
