Overview of Corporate Portal Architecture


corporate portal architecture

A corporate portal is a mechanism for integrating a wide variety of information across an enterprise business or organization. Features include a single sign-on, data integration, customization/personalization, access control, and an enterprise search function. Because the content is decentralized, it can always be as up-to-date as possible. But what does the user interface and corporate portal architecture look like? Read on for a corporate portal development overview.

Developing a Corporate Portal UI

A corporate portal user interface (UI) is generally web-based, with a single access point. The architecture is built so that it can aggregate information through application-specific portlets, or user interface software components. A portlet is also what’s commonly referred to as “pluggable,” which means the look and feel of the graphical user interface can be changed at runtime. While this all seems complicated, most people are very familiar with portlets. Portlet applications can include email, forums, news feeds, and more.

Portal UI Layers

While the structure and UI of a corporate portal can be complicated, the end result actually streamlines business processes exponentially.

There are a number of layers that are built into a portal, all of which depend on one another. These include common libraries (written in Java using Open Foundation), two levels of UI infrastructure, and portal pages. The pages include admin pages, browsing pages, and common pages. These layers work together to integrate information and streamline a number of processes.
