Portal is a network service that brings together content from diverse distributed resources using technologies such as cross-searching, harvesting, and alerting, and collates this into an amalgamated form for presentation to the user.
We at SSPL have an expertise of this presentation via web browser, though other means are also possible. From end user’s perspective we also understand that a portal is possibly personalized & single point of access where searching can be carried out across one or more than one resource and the amalgamated results viewed. Information may also be presented via other means, for example, alerting services and conference listings or links to e-prints and learning materials.
As a portal project we at SSPL take is forward as an online service that provides a personalized, single point of access to resources that supports end-user in one or more tasks (resource discovery, learning, research etc.). The resources made available via a portal are typically brought together from more than one source.
At Synergie Strauss when we talk about an enterprise portal, also known as an enterprise information portal (EIP), it is a framework for integrating information, people and processes across organizational boundaries in manner similar to the more general web portals. Enterprise portals provide a secure unified access point, often in the form of a web-based user interface, and are designed to aggregate and personalize information through application-specific portals. Our Team of portal development always keep all above things in mind while going ahead with the process of portal development.
One hallmark of enterprise portals is the DE-centralized content contribution and content management, which keeps the information always updated. Another distinguishing characteristic is that they cater for customers, vendors and others beyond an organization’s boundaries. This contrasts with a corporate portal which is structured for roles within an organization.
