Why clients should want Portals

I am a new Enterprise consultant. My group head asked me what were the uses of Portals that we can tell to the clients.

This IT scenario provides all members of a company's value chain—employees, customers, partners, and suppliers—with uniform, role-based, and secure access to their day-to-day work and information resources through a Web-based portal interface. These resources include SAP applications, third-party applications, databases, data warehouses, desktop documents, Web content, and services. The portal makes it possible to search internal and external sources, and to access both structured and unstructured information from any geographical location throughout the organization.

Using the role-based user interface of SAP NetWeaver Portal, a company can use modular building blocks to dynamically structure its business processes and deliver business content tailored to the needs of specific user groups. SAP customers can speed up their portal implementation by leveraging a wide range of predefined role-specific business packages suitable for a variety of industries and user roles.

The security features integrated into the portal include authentication, single sign-on (SSO), and authorization capabilities. Business users only require a standard browser on their desktop, without the need for additional software components.
