Web Portals 101
Web Portal – Introduction
The term portal is used to describe a website that serves as a gateway to content or information. Portals allow accessing and publishing the content in an organized way and therefore they are often viewed as the starting point for accessing information.
Enterprise portals present the information and services available to their users in a single dashboard-like view that is targeted to user’s job functions and preferences. On the publishing end, the portal allows system administrators to designate specific user groups to maintain the content. Enterprise portals often serve as a single sign-on (SSO) solution for accessing other resources and systems within the organization’s boundaries.
Importance of Web Portals
Portals are playing an enormous role in increasing the productivity of organizations by simplifying content publishing and access to information. Leading portal solutions such as Supremus Intranet Portal take this to the next level by allowing for creating electronic dashboards and searchable directories and creating custom productivity tools that are tailored to the specific needs of organizations and users
Portal advantages over static Intranets and Extranets
Static Intranets allow publishing documents and information and making it available to the whole organization. However, if not tightly managed and maintained they quite often are not kept up-to-date and become overloaded with Motley documents that are in a permanent state of chaos. Also, because skilled IT staff is usually needed to maintain and publish the content, the departmental users have very little input on how the information is presented and how it is maintained.
Supremus Intranet Portal – the enterprise portal solution – addresses these common problems in a very straight-forward manner. First, because it is easy to learn, a short training session is all that is needed by non-technical users to learn how to publish and maintain the content themselves. With its security and access framework, the Supremus Intranet Portal administrator can easily set up user roles and designate content editing rights to specific users or groups. The supplied portlets, on the other hand, assure that the information is published in a structured way, which leads to well-organized pages. Lastly, with the built-in search crawler and search engine, any information that is published in Supremus Intranet Portal is automatically searchable by authorized users.
