The volume of data and information available in an organization is growing exponentially,
resulting in information overload. All of the information is not relevant to all
users. Sifting through all the information to find relevant pieces impacts the productivity
and efficiency of users. Hence, there is a pressing need for structuring information
in a manner that ensures that only relevant information is available to users.
Enterprise Information Portal
An Enterprise Information Portal (EIP) can provide an environment that can be personalized
to deliver only contextual digital content and services to all identified users
(employees, customers, suppliers and partners) from any web-enabled device.
Successful implementation of a portal ecosystem extending across and beyond the
enterprise is a complex task.
An EIP is made up of several components (as shown below). These components can be
classified into 3 basic categories:
These are the components that form the backbone of any portal. The features include
presentation and personalization of pages, administration, security features like
encryption, authorization and authentication (Single sign-on), besides mandatory
utilities like a dynamic search engine. Given the critical role it plays in the
operation of a business, the system is designed to be highly reliable and available,
with upwards of 99.97% uptime.
Given specific priorities, you may want specific add-ons. Using your input, we build
in additional services like collaboration (via e-mail, messaging, document sharing,
application sharing and chat), workflow management and monitoring, with the ability
to change workflow processes, alerts, both via e-mail and to mobile devices, and
Enterprise Content Management
, where users can tailor
the EIP to meet their individual requirements.
We appreciate the fact that you may already have Business Intelligence, legacy and
ERP applications. Our portal solution is designed to work seamlessly with them.
We also ensure that it can access and use data from corporate databases across the
Symbyo enterprise information portal works with you to establish an architecture
that can scale to meet your current and future needs, evaluate, select and set up
the appropriate portal servers, integrate the portal with your existing applications
and implement a governance mechanism to bring order and predictability into the
evolution and sustenance of the portal. Our approach follows a controlled, evolutionary
implementation methodology that effectively manages technology changes and enables
easy user adoption.
