DETROIT, July 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Covisint, a Compuware (Nasdaq:CPWR) company, today announced that it is co-hosting a webinar with a global vehicle manufacturer on using next-generation, cloud-based portal technology to successfully connect, engage and collaborate with its most important global audiences. The July 24 event, titled "Is Your Enterprise Portal Never Finished, Always over Budget and Delivering Limited Value?," will feature the automaker's Manager for Supplier Portal Procurement & Communication, who is responsible for all global processes and communication.

Successful portals must align with emerging business needs for flexibility, agility and fast time-to-value. They also need to securely deliver the right information to the right people whenever and wherever it's needed and on any device. This webinar will provide attendees with real-world lessons and success examples -- along with the pitfalls to avoid -- helping organizations implement an enterprise portal that will deliver business value within weeks, rather than months or years.

This Wednesday, July 24 webinar will benefit attendees through:

  • solving, saving -- discussing how next-generation portals in the cloud provide a global solution in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods;
  • competitive advantage success examples -- including how this global automaker is using portal technology to improve interactions and knowledge exchange while increasing its competitive advantage with suppliers and partners; and,
  • best practices and pitfalls -- exposing specific best practices to consider and pitfalls to avoid to implement a successful portal strategy that meets key business needs driving flexibility, agility and time-to-value.

"Companies are often challenged in how to best share secure information with, between and among customers, business partners, suppliers and employees -- regardless of geography, time or device of choice," said Richard Stone, Director for Platform Product Marketing for Covisint. "They're finding out the hard way that traditional, on-premise portals take too long, cost too much and fail to deliver what the business needs. The result is decreasing profits and market share erosion against the backdrop of faster-moving competitors."

Who should attend: VPs of technology, portal infrastructure, mobility strategies; CIOs, directors,
managers and technicians; anyone interested in how business success can be
enabled and accelerated by implementing a cloud-based enterprise portal
When: Wednesday, July 24, 2013 at 1 p.m. Eastern
