IBM (NYSE:IBM) will release its new portal software with support later this quarter. WebSphere Portal 6.1 is designed to securely combine information from both the enterprise and the Web.

The new software features live text tagging to allow users to click on text, in context of the business process being used, and automatically access supporting information. For example, a sales representative clicks on the address of a customer and a map with directions appears or an electronic business card pops up. The software also enables the instant update of any part of a Web page without refreshing the entire page.

"This is a first-of-its-kind Web 2.0 portal because it helps users interact with the information and people they need around the clock, from the Web and from within an organization," Larry Bowden, vice president of portals and web interactive services at IBM, said in a statement.
