SAP NetWeaver PORTAL
COMPONENTS & TOOLS OF SAP NetWeaver
SAP NetWeaver Portal unifies key information and applications to give users a single view that spans IT silos and organizational boundaries. It allows you to take full advantage of all your information resources -- and maximize the return on your IT investments. And, its predefined business content accelerates implementation and reduces the cost of integrating your existing systems.
With SAP NetWeaver Portal, you can quickly and effectively integrate SAP solutions, third-party applications, legacy systems, databases, unstructured documents, internal and external Web content, and collaboration tools. It uses open standards, Web services, and tight integration with other SAP NetWeaver components to support heterogeneous systems from all major technology providers. And it comes with built-in support for Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) and Microsoft .NET technology.
SAP NetWeaver Portal is flexible and secure, and enables you to take full advantage of your information assets. Features and functions include:
SAP NetWeaver Portal provides a personalized, secure interface that unifies enterprise applications, information, and processes from both SAP and third-party sources into a coherent, role-based portal experience. The portal supports both UNIX and Microsoft Windows servers and is localized to support more than 20 languages. Its field-tested capabilities deliver the security, scalability, and performance that SAP customers expect, along with easy user and content administration.
With SAP NetWeaver Portal, users can access and share information and applications in a collaborative environment. Virtual collaboration rooms allow users to work together efficiently, regardless of where they are located. This integrated, real-time collaboration enables powerful and immediate communication that crosses organizational boundaries while enforcing security requirements.
SAP NetWeaver Portal provides a shared set of user services for finding, organizing, and accessing unstructured content stored in third-party repositories and SAP content management systems. Powerful classification tools automate the organization of information. Subject-matter experts and content managers can publish information to distinct user audiences through Web-based authoring that simplifies the publishing process. Knowledge management functions are an important part of SAP's support for enterprise content management.
