Portals continue to be surrounded by a great deal of confusion, even though the concept has been around for more than a decade. Portal projects tend to spread deep into the enterprise, addressing complex requirements, typically around integration and advanced presentation such as personalization. Consequently portal projects don’t come cheap and the industry has seen more than a few failed portal projects.
John Petersen of Sutro Software has focused on portals for most of his working life. He has agreed to host a roundtable which will address the intersection between web content management and portals. John has a background with portal pioneers Epicentric, which were later acquired by Vignette.
Our roundtables is a special type of conference session without prepared slides. Join the discussion at the portal table in Philadelphia, where you can work with peers to identify some of the emerging best practices about when or if your web content projects can benefit from portal technology – or add your thoughts below.
