Enterprise portal servers help firms reduce costs by giving employees self-service access to online applications, information, and resources. But choosing the right vendor is hard because portal server vendors have very different strengths and weaknesses. Selecting the right portal server does not guarantee success, but the wrong decision can derail an enterprise portal project.

This Summit will help by providing lab-tested details of the key portal products and a strategy for how to choose the best product for your project. Forrester analysts will lay out a portal strategy, the technical requirements, and the best decision process to help you craft bulletproof RFPs. User company executives and systems integration leaders will reveal the secrets for portal success, and Forrester will facilitate a discussion that connects buyers with sellers on equal footing. Summit presentations (including a live RFP) will compare portal servers and their building blocks — application servers, content management systems, and integration servers — based on lab evaluations of top vendors in each category.
