With the globalisation of business and the speed in which the competitive environment can change, organisations are looking for ways in which to better meet the diverse and often specific information needs of employee, suppliers, customers and other important stakeholders.
More specifically, organisations are looking to provide users with a ‘single view’ of information, aggregate corporate information into one system for detailed reporting purposes, personalise data visualisation to the exact needs of the user and reduce the requirement to log into multiple applications for information retrieval and processing. In response to these challenges, Web portals are cited as an ideal technology choice on which to address these often complex and difficult requirements.
