Oracle Portal is an Enterprise Information Portal (EIP) that offers companies the ability to integrate various "portlets" or interface components into one interface, giving users a single point of access for their information needs. The Factiva Module enables company administrators to place news anywhere in their Oracle Portal without having to write code.

According to the company, with Factiva Module for Oracle Portal, end-users can easily conduct research, set up news folders, browse top headlines, and get company information via a link to Dow Jones Interactive, the premium business intelligence service offered by Factiva. Companies using Factiva Module for Oracle Portal will have the choice of subscribing to a range of content offered by Factiva. The specific content sets available through the service include Business Newsstand, Publications Library, Company Quick Search, and Custom Clips.

Factiva Module for Oracle Portal is available for a quarterly content fee. This fee is determined by which of the four portlet options users choose and by how many people are given access to each portlet. A minimum of 50 users is required.

Through Factiva's Web site (, users can register for a free, 30-day trial of Factiva Module for Oracle Portal.
