Over the past 8 years, Veriday has been engaged for the implementation of a number of Enterprise Portals using Liferay. The size and scale of the projects have varied but a common thread amongst the implementations has been the objective of organizations to move beyond the restraints of their current technology in order to better engage their employees.
Let’s say, you’d like to submit an IT ticket, track the status of a project, collaborate in real-time or simply update the content on your website. Typically, you’d have to gather a number of departments together, agree on how to move forward and delegate resources to complete each task. Let’s take Mindy the Marketing professional, for example. Each time she would like to make a quick update on her organization’s website, she has to engage Ian the IT Manager, or outsource to a 3rd party vendor, wasting time and money. Ian the IT Manager has to stop what he’s doing in order to facilitate the quick content update. In comes the Enterprise Portal…
The convergence of information, process and technology
An Enterprise Portal isn’t just a fancy term for intranet. For a business, an enterprise portal brings together its various applications, information, business units and services on one common platform. The portal becomes an interactive platform for employees, which is customizable to each of their jobs and responsibilities. It is a system for information delivery and organization, collaboration, content and data management, workflows and operations management through an application that gives users a single point of access.
The portal framework exists to solve aggregation and personalization so that developers do not have to reinvent the wheel every time an organization scales or adds an application. Customizing the employees’ portal space provides them with all of the information they need to do their jobs more quickly and efficiently than if they had to search out the data themselves. The portal space becomes a unique online experience built around your brand.
More competitive, collaborative and improved ROI
The fundamental key is making your organization more competitive, isn’t it? Organizations are turning to Enterprise Portals to offer a competitive advantage. The availability of ‘’anytime-anywhere’’ managed information, on one-platform, makes for an agile business, leveraging new ideas and decisions faster through the streamlining of operations and business-wide knowledge sharing.
At Veriday, we are working with enterprises to implement portal solutions that enable their business to take advantage of cutting-edge technologies in order to gain a competitive advantage. Engaged employees will deliver more to your organization when they are equipped with the tools to do their job effectively. In today’s digital landscape, employee engagement expectations continue to rise making portals, collaboration and content management solutions more critical then ever.
Question: Does your enterprise portal effectively support the technology demands placed on it in today’s digital economy?
