After a successful ramp-up phase, we are very glad to announce that SAP NetWeaver Portal, enterprise workspaces are now in the phase of general availability.

As a SAP customer and user of SAP NetWeaver Portal, you can now enhance the value of your investment with enterprise workspaces. These workspaces empower your employees to combine content and applications into a single online work environment that is customized to their needs.
Your business users are empowered to integrate, organize and use various content such as applications, reports, dashboards, web content and documents either from SAP or Non-SAP systems.  This environment provides two types of workspaces: personal and shared. Users can organize content for their own purposes in a personal workspace, or share the content with a team or group of colleagues in a shared workspace.

SAP NetWeaver Portal, enterprise workspaces are implemented on top of the 7.0 codeline: It is an add-on to SAP NW Portal 7.0 EhP1, SP5.
