Feb 10, 2006: All about portals

Always wondered what a portal really is? James Robertson does an excellent job of clearly explaining the difference between portal as technology and portal as concept. He also provides a good list of portal pros and cons, and advice on how to position portals for success, although he concludes with a pessimistic view of portals future--as a technology. The concept will serve us well only if we make sure our portal projects are "driven by clear staff and organisational needs, as well as a clear vision of the user experience that must be delivered."
