Portal & Content Management
Before deciding on a portal and content management solution, you'll want to consider its level of built-in support for:
  • Content management
  • Workflow
  • Collaboration

Portal software also varies in the ease and power of its administrative features. Though all of these portals here are Web-based, some are easier to manage than others, and several require an existing LDAP or Microsoft Active Directory corporate directory.

Deciding on which Portal fits your:
  • Budget
  • Need
  • IT Expertise

Getting the most out of a portal means that you'll need to integrate with your existing business-critical systems eventually, if not right away.

Some content management (CM) solutions require more developer and administrative input than others. Strking the right balance between customizability and letting ordinary users define and manage content is a worthy goal for any CM package.
