Prentice Hall, 2002

  5. Book Case Reasons: Portal Speeds Product Research and Development • B2E Portals provide • Fast and easy access to information required to support the design activities and R&D • Collaboration tools and database for locating company experts (Intranets, DataWarehousing) • Features • Strong security • Easy integration with legacy systems • Built-in intelligent agents • Fast seraph engine • Powerful knowledge management capabilities Prentice Hall, 2002

  13. Types of portals Publishing portals Commercial portals Types of portals Personal portals Corporate portals Enterprise (Corporate) Portals All true, but before we go into the books perspective on Portals… Here is another Prentice Hall, 2002

  14. What is a Portal? • A web page that pulls information together (Yahoo), • Creates simple, up to date, interest based access to information • Primary purpose: pull together information, not generate it. Prentice Hall, 2002

  15. What is the information management problem? • Too much information on the web (infoglut) • Too messy, too complex to navigate • Corporations want people to stick around longer (to easy to go to another site) • Executives have no control over what people see Prentice Hall, 2002

  16. How do portals help? • Filter information – see only what I care about • Uses the Document model - magazines • Stickiness – access to content • Control – centrally published by the business Prentice Hall, 2002

  17. Why were portals created? • Reaction to browsing • Browsing is a distraction, slow • Portals stop browsing Prentice Hall, 2002

  18. Categories of Portals • Public Web Sites (Yahoo) – keep users around to read ads, read about products • Corporate portals – filter and control what the community of users sees, stop browsing, require low user support • Individual portals – pages you go to out of interest, access to relevant content, personal, (Stocks, OL results, travel info). Prentice Hall, 2002

  19. Corporate portals benefits • They support knowledge management • Up to date info • Simple to use (low user support, little training) • Browser client interface, known, no extra software to maintain • Easy to see what info is relevant • Keep workers from browsing, because they find what they need Prentice Hall, 2002

  20. Common characteristics of all portals • Simple to use • Use the document model • Push information to the user • Let the user subscribe to the technology (they must be able to personalize it, or they will not use it. It must be enjoyable.) Prentice Hall, 2002

  21. Books versus Portals • Books • Hierarchical structure – organize info • Author guided • Portable • Solitary activity • Portal • Hyperlink structure – need tools to navigate • Self guided – search ability • Sometimes portable – need e-book? • Social – networks are social • Portals may become the way to navigate e-books Prentice Hall, 2002

  22. Portal versus Desktop • Desktop • Access everything (messy, not org. Controlled) • Arrange any way (org. Must fix it) • Copy-paste-run any application • Work with the computer (access file system) • Portals • Filtered • Minimal arrangement ability • Read only applications • Real only access to file system • User resistance to being locked out of desktop. Must work together, and allow user authoring. Prentice Hall, 2002

  23. Portal Lessons learned • Simple Access to complex info • Scalibility – broad range of info, many sources, legacy systems • Use document process model (magazine) • Send only info that the community cares about • Support group activities within an organization • Design it so that your suppliers and customers can become members of your portal • Provide navigatable access to good content, and make it fun and interesting. Prentice Hall, 2002
