Portals continue to play an important role in many enterprise architectures. They are a better fit than other types of tools for enterprises that require:
- Heavy aggregation and integration with external or internal applications
- A dashboard-based user experience
- Complex user management and segmentation/personalization at an application level
However, these benefits come at the expense of comparatively high complexity and greater infrastructure demands. Consider portal solutions as platforms that should be extended to meet your needs, rather than as products that provide functionality out of the box.
This briefing offers a snapshot of trends in the current marketplace, as well as a comparative analysis of the relative risks associated with each portal and integration vendor via RSG’s “Reality Check” chart.
