Generation 7 Portals: Unifying the User Experience
By Kellsey Ruppel-Oracle on Jan 31, 2011
Gartner has tracked evolving roles and characteristics for seven generations of enterprise portals. In their latest report, Gartner comments how the latest generation of portals will:
- Serve as a virtual hub for individuals and companies, taking content, data and services to users no matter what device they use
- Contextualize the user experience through developer tools, user configuration and administration
- Bring together the disconnected user interfaces developed from portals, mashups, RIAs, websites, web content management and mobile applications
It's interesting to note that much of what they report on is exactly in line with the new release of Oracle WebCenter Suite. We invite you to read this complimentary Gartner Research Note, Generation 7 Portals: Unifying the User Experience, to learn about the evolution of the latest generation of enterprise portals.
