Why this seminar ?
Enterprise Portals have emerged as a very popular way for sharing information in a company and for enabling personalized self-service to their customers, partners and employees. Typically, portal users get a unified view on their job-specific business context (information, applications and know-how). But what do we exactly mean with this "buzzword" ? What are the most important application domains ? Is this not just another name to sell application integration software ? Where do we get the best return-on-investment (ROI) ? Is it in "Employee Self-Service" (ESS), which is a very popular business-to-employee (B2E) application ? Is it in business-to-business (B2B) environments, where we use the portal to streamline customer-relationship management (CRM) and supply-chain management (SCM) solutions ? And what happened to the business-to-consumer (B2C) portal implementations ? These and other questions will be answered during this unique one-day seminar.
There is currently a lot of activity in the extremely crowded enterprise portals market, because the big software players like IBM, SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, Computer Associates, Sybase, ..., and the more specialized portal players like Citrix, Hummingbird, Plumtree, ... are always trying to improve their products and outclass the competition. But what are their respective strenghts and weaknesses ? Which vendors will survive the ongoing market shakeout ? Despite the vendor consolidation, choosing the right enterprise portal product is still not an easy task. We hope that this seminar will give you guidelines and advice to make the right decision.
Of course, we will also focus on the implementation of enterprise portals and portal-ready applications in general, as well as the requirements to build a flexible and secure portal architecture, and to integrate this with back-end applications. Furthermore, we will also look at the impact on an organisation and its business process, and the critical success factors for an enterprise portal project.
All of this will be further illustrated by case studies, based on the practical experiences of designing and implementing such an enterprise portal.
