Viador picked as platform for fed portals

Five federal systems integrators have chosen Viador Inc.'s E-Portal Suite

as the platform they will use to serve their government customers, Viador

announced this week.

"These integrators will use Viador's portal platform to provide government

with proven technologies that are very popular in the commercial space,"

said Phyllis Dunn, Viador's vice president for e-government, at the E-Gov

trade show in Washington, D.C.

Viador signed new reseller or partnership agreements with the following


* Andersen Consulting, which resold the E-Portal Suite to the Education

Department for the Student Financial Assistance Modernization Blueprint


* Logicon Inc., which through its Inter-National Research Institute resold

the portal product to the Defense Department for a secure and personalized

way to share multiple sources of e-government information.

*Autonomy Corp., which formed a partnership with Viador to manage information

for the departments of Education and Defense.

* Exolve Inc., which formed a partnership to provide solutions for the DOD's

chief information officers and the agency's IT workers.

* Titan Corp., which resells Viador's product as part of its Intelligence

Community Portal for government intelligence agencies.

Dunn said Viador's proven security features and methodologies make it a

natural fit for the federal space because they lead to reduced costs and

fast implementations through the systems integrators. Also, the fact that

Viador is on the General Services Administration schedule and is approved

for commercial off-the-shelf implementation helps provide good price points

for customers.

"We can have an implementation operational in less than 42 days and then

we phase in additional applications in six-week intervals," Dunn said. Any

agency that collects information from multiple sources, uses legacy systems

and needs to communicate with different constituencies could benefit from

the portal solutions, he added.

"Government is a vertical market within Viador, and we already have wins

at the DOD, Education, the IRS and the FAA, so we're really targeting health

care and education through these partnerships," she said.
