Portal

Enhanced user productivity, increased user satisfaction, intuitive working environment and a dynamic and flexible framework for future agility.

Web portals provide a personalized view of your organization, helping you, your customers, partners and suppliers work together better. Portals provide role-based access to what you need, when you need it.   They provide a rapid ‘standardization layer for merged or acquired companies to enable brand standardisation and rapid access to users across diverse systems to maximise time to performance for the newly formed enterprise.

Portals allow you to customize your work environment to your own needs, present resources in a consistent fashion, and can provide a personalized experience based upon your previous preferences or specific role within an organization.

Portal software connects all stake holders, enables enhanced communication, provides the environment for collaboration and enhances process efficiency. Portals also support information sharing within and beyond the enterprise.

Core portal services include role-based access to applications and content, search, personalization and security, along with new portlet development and Web 2.0 capabilities, enabling exceptional user experiences that include a higher level of responsiveness and usability. Portals can integrate with other vendors’ collaboration, security and extended search systems, and still provide a reliable point of access to your information, applications and people.

The underlying Portal framework provides common services – like access control, integration, administration and presentation – across IT environments.

Portal opens windows into existing systems more easily - making it easy to integrate existing Web applications directly into a portal – allowing Web applications to be merged into dynamic, portal-based composite applications, both preserving and increasing the value of existing IT investments.

Portal can enable a rapid user environment which provides a common look and feel to systems from both companies – rapidly enabling a personalized, productive environment for users.

Enhanced and extended search capabilities then provide the additional information ‘findability’ which maximizes the benefit of all the pertinent information across the newly formed enterprise to maximise the benefit of the combined information resources.  Enterprise search also supports due diligence for rapidly locating information and data from across the acquired enterprise’s systems.

Systems Integration enables system consolidation, process integration and maximum efficiency of the IT environment and the company processes and compliance requirements without having a negative impact on users.
