E-Learning is a technology supported education system where the medium of instruction involves digital applications. Face- to- face interaction does not take place most of the time. It can be used in companies to deliver training courses and discuss strategies with to employees. A wide spectrum of internet technologies is utilized to reach the learners. CD-ROM-based, Network-based, Intranet-based or Internet-based trainings also exist, wherein access to trainers is provided to the trainees through online bulletin boards, online discussion groups and e-mail. It may be totally self-contained with links to reference materials in place of a live instructor. Online support is also a form of e-learning and functions in a similar manner to knowledge databases. Online support comes in the form of forums, chat rooms, online bulletin boards, e-mail, or live instant-messaging support. Slightly more interactive than simple access to knowledge databases, online support offers the opportunity for more specific questions and answers, as well as more immediate answers.
Enterprise Application Integration
Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) is the use of software and computer systems architectural principles to integrate a set of enterprise computer applications. The lack of communication between certain applications sometimes leads to inefficiencies, wherein identical data are stored in multiple locations, or straightforward processes are unable to be automated. Enterprise application integration (EAI) is the process of linking such applications within a single organization together in order to simplify and automate business processes to the greatest extent possible, while at the same time avoiding having to make sweeping changes to the existing applications or data structures. One large challenge of EAI is that the various systems that need to be linked together often reside on different operating systems, use different database solutions and different computer languages, and in some cases are legacy systems that are no longer supported by the vendor who originally created them. In some cases, such systems are dubbed “stovepipe systems” because they consist of components that have been jammed together in a way that makes it very hard to modify them in any way.
Document management involves the tracking and storing of electronic documents and/or images of paper documents. In the broadest sense, document management can range from simple systems to an enterprise content management system. There are several common issues that are involved in managing documents, whether the system is an informal, ad-hoc, paper-based method for one person or if it is a formal, structured, computer enhanced system for many people across multiple offices. Most methods for managing documents deal with Location, Filing, Retrieval, Security, Disaster, Recovery, and Retention period, Archiving, Distribution, Workflow, Creation and Authentication of documents.
Web content viewer uses a very extendable handler mechanism to display content managed in directory structures with some version control system or from nearly any other sources. The basic idea is just displaying directory contents, with some index definitions, as a website – and using the file system to structure the content, with all its features like links, collections and file types. Metadata fetched from various sources is used and virtual directory trees are allowed. Using a user extendable handler mechanism, the directories, files, content and meta data may be handled and fetched separately and displayed with different display decorators for different output, like HTML, text, PDF or the original binary. Mainly used for static cached content, also dynamic user interaction is possible when the content classes are implementing the corresponding interfaces. Any content nodes may define themselves as dynamic, so that the engine won’t cache anything.
An enterprise portal is a framework for integrating information, people and processes across organizational boundaries. It provides a secure unified access point, often in the form of a web-based user interface, and is designed to aggregate and personalize information through application-specific portlets. One hallmark of enterprise portals is the de-centralized content contribution and content management, which keeps the information always updated. It allows a non-technical user to browse the business intelligence objects like documents, reports, dimensions, etc via the Web.
