RESERVATION REQUIRED - Luncheon Meeting - 11:45am until 1:30pm
This Business Forum Luncheon will discuss the difficulties in implementing enterprise portals for larger organizations, and the business and technical advantages of using federated portal architecture to build an enterprise portal.
The idea of enterprise portals is both simple and compelling; build a web and browser based system that allows knowledge workers in the enterprise to access all the information that they need to do their job, regardless of where that data is stored. By providing access to numerous corporate data sources through a single web interface, called the "enterprise portal", employees save time they would otherwise spend requesting reports, contacting colleagues, and waiting for answers from other departments.
Implementing this appealing idea however, is seldom easy. That is because most enterprise portals are built on :"data center" architecture that relies on centralizing data to one server. However there are now better, faster, more economical and effective ways to build enterprise portals. This forum
discussion will cover everything you need to know.
