Sun Microsystems Inc. and Yahoo! Inc. announced that the companies have formed an alliance to increase corporate productivity by creating an enterprise portal environment that blends business critical applications with personalized information. The blended solution of personalized content and services from Yahoo! combined with the functionality of Sun ONE Portal Server (formerly the iPlanet Portal Server) will deliver the portal environment necessary to make significant return on investment possible. With Yahoo!'s leading reach into the workplace (72.9 percent, reported by Nielsen/NetRatings, March 2002) and proven ability to aggregate and integrate high-value, personalized content with corporate applications, Sun ONE Portal customers will be able to quickly improve employee productivity.

"In the context of business portals, personalization and high-quality content are the most persistent sources of customer value," said Hadley Reynolds, Research Director at Delphi Group. "The relationship between Sun and Yahoo! accelerates the process of workplace provisioning for Sun ONE Portal users, and offers instant dial tone for focused business information at the professional desktop."

Increasingly, executives are relying upon corporate portals and portal computing to accelerate communications, increase productivity, and meet the changing information needs of end users. In order to increase adoption and retention of these portals, a wide variety of information and a compelling user experience is necessary to ensure the portal is used to its full potential and increase return on investment.
