Portals are single point of access for information, knowledge, business services, and transactions.
Portals provide aggregation and role-based access to Business to Business (B2B), Business to Consumer (B2C) and Business to Employee (B2E); along with vertical and horizontal domain support. Portals also allow for that data to be served on a variety of devices, anytime, anywhere.
From a smartphone to a desktop your organization can gain centralized access to vital and updated information along with enterprise applications that run the core of your operation.
When you think of a Portal implementation you can start by the analogy of the japanese bento box. Just as a bento box has an ordered and compartmentalized approach to a lunch, a portal provides single units of interaction called “portlets”, each portlet provides individual value to the overall portal and could reach its defined objectives on its own or with the collaboration and interaction of other portlets present in the portal page.
The goal of every business leader generally includes in its execution plans a consolidated and easy way to access to all the information and business applications business employees and executive personnel require to meet their objectives. Portal realizes this need. Portals vertically or horizontally integrate business areas, business processes and scattered sources of information into a single vehicle with profiling and security manageable to both the IT and business organizations.

IBM has been there and will be there evolving the investment of hundreds of thousands of companies that rely on IBM WebSphere portal to delivery their core business.
