We launched iCentera within 60 days to power all our sales, partner, employee and customer portals," said Dave Alampi, VP Global Marketing Strategy & Services for Infor.

iCentera has recently expanded its service to include community portals for both internal and external user communication. Community portals are a mechanism to simply and rapidly open up information to a particular user segment or community. Users can browse the available selection of community portals and then simply subscribe to those portals they are interested in to gain access to documents, videos, discussion forums, blogs and other targeted information and collaboration features. As a result our customers are replacing expensive, stale and difficult to manage intranets and extranets with a cost effective and easy to use solution.
