Plumtree Software has announced its Enterprise Web Development Kit (EDK) extensions for integrating systems of records such as PeopleSoft, SAP and Siebel. This kit consists of code samples and templates to enable developers to rapidly create integration portlet services with the user interface of their choice. In turn, these portlets in turn form service-oriented building blocks for creating composite applications which may can be delivered through the Plumtree Corporate Portal.
Unlike competing integration solutions which either have “canned,” inflexible user interfaces or overwhelming development complexity, Plumstree says that EDK extensions provide useful starting points for building portlets without placing any restrictions on the user interface. Plumtree’s EDK extensions help companies tap into the services and functionality of their existing ERP and CRM systems. As a result, more users are able to access these applications while organizations are able to experience greater ROI from their enterprise system investment.
Comprised of APIs, documentation and sample code, the EDK affords developers the unique ability to build portlets and Web services for the portal in both Java and . NET-based environments.
“Plumtree’s EDK extensions provide enterprise application developers the blueprints for creating portlet based services to tap into back-end systems such as PeopleSoft, SAP and Siebel,” said Girish Balasubramanian, product line marketing manager at Plumtree Software. “Integration and service-enablement has always been a key strength for us. With our open architecture, we empower enterprises to choose to work with applications that are right for their business rather than locking them into a single back-end vendor.”
The EDK extensions balance superior flexibility with time-to-deployment by
• Siebel portlets for two key functions: view a Account and view and update opportunities
• PeopleSoft portlets for human resource management system: view paycheck information, update personal information, update dependent beneficiary information
• Portlet code for customization
• QuickStart guide for installation and configuration
• Support by developer support
