IBM has announced that car maker Audi has deployed a comprehensive portal platform based on IBM WebSphere Portal to serve as a central, unified and multilingual access point for all Audi employees worldwide, with content customized to employee roles.
Audi now relies on WebSphere Portal to create a central platform that allows all work and business processes to be handled without re-entering data or switching from one medium to another, thus making these processes quicker and more efficient. In addition to accessing business applications, employees can now utilize personalized desktops through the portal platform, allowing them to perform administrative tasks such as applying for time off or booking flights.
Anton Kramm, head of IT web solutions at Audi, said: Our aim was to provide new technologies and online media that would enable our employees to gain comfortable, quick, web-based access to all relevant services, information and communication offerings. Together with IBM we managed to achieve this goal in a very short time.
