Web Portal Software

Web Portal Software Overview

Web portal software is an online tool allowing companies secured, unified, and personalized access to enterprise data and applications. This creates a better and more efficient communication portal between businesses, customers, and internal employees.

Extranet portals (external facing systems) create a gateway through which customers and business partners can access applications and information. Intranet portals (internal-facing systems) create a gateway through which employees can access enterprise systems and data. Portal access is secured by setting up custom user profiles with role-based access that determines which applications and data can be accessed or updated.

Web portal software can be deployed in different ways. The functionality of these portals often overlaps and are capable of supporting additional features geared toward a specific use. They include:

  • Content Portals – consolidate and display content from multiple sources within a business.

  • Integration Portals – join multiple web applications, providing a single point of access to multiple back-end systems and their functionality.

  • Collaboration Portals – support team project efforts through the organization of activities and exchange of information

  • Process Portals – help integrate back-end systems across multiple business divisions such as sales, marketing, finance, and human resources. This unified interface facilitates end-to-end business processing.
