Definition

workplace (user interface)

In a computer user interface, a workplace is a personalized view of a company and its processes that builds on the popular desktop metaphor. Typically, the workplace view is through a Web browser and is a portal to a company's business resources over its intranet. Companies that use SAP's R/3 business system can build their own mySAP Workplace, which includes, for example, a single signon facility, mini-applications, and Web content management capabilities.
