Free advice on portal projects

A guide for companies planning to deploy portals or wishing to revitalise an existing implementation will be available from the Portals For Profit Web site on 10 June, writes Eric Doyle.

The 60-page Portals for Profit booklet looks at the technical problems of implementing a portal project and uses case studies to illustrate how various companies have risen to the challenge.

Co-written by Tibco, KPMG Consulting, Reuters, Company-I, Netegrity and Interwoven, the guide offers independent advice on the factors that need to be considered when selecting a portal and how to sell the concept to the board.

Although portals can improve productivity and reduce costs, there is a danger that users' enthusiasm for using them will wane. The guide says extensibility is the key to keeping users' interest, by adding new services on a regular basis.

There are four main themes in the booklet: a set of business arguments to support portal implementation; examples of successful projects; information on how business value can be unlocked; and a set of rules to aid deployment.

The guide sets out 10 golden rules for implementation, based on real-world experiences, with a section by Reuters on what works for the financial markets. Another section offers a six-point plan for portal security.

The free booklet can be downloaded from www.portalsforprofit.co.uk where a hard-copy version can also be requested.
