Enterprise Information Portal The enterprise information portal is a single entry point for business users to access information resources seamlessly within the same user interface environment.
Enterprise Information Portals using SharePoint or other Portal platforms enables organization to unlock internally and externally stored information, and provide users a single gateway to personalized information needed to make informed business decisions.
Portal also helps amalgamation of software applications that consolidate, manage, analyze and distribute information across and outside of an enterprise (including Business.
Intelligence, Content Management, Data Warehouse & Mart and Data Management applications.)”
Information portal uses both “push” and “pull” technologies to transmit information to users through a standardized web-based interface.
Portals provide “interactivity” – the ability to ” ‘question’ and share information on” user desktops and it exhibit the trend toward “verticalization” in application software. That is, they are often “packaged applications” providing “targeted content to specific industries or corporate functions;”
Portals integrate disparate applications including Content Management, Business Intelligence, Data Warehouse/Data Mart, Data Management, and other data external to these applications into a single system that can “share, manage and maintain information from one central user interface.”
To access both external and internal sources of data and information, it is able to support a bi-directional exchange of information with these sources. And it is able to use the data and information it acquires for further processing and analysis.
