The premise behind Portals and Intranets is to make information and processes available
to all workers from a single point of access. With the information explosion, often these
solutions recreate the problems they were originally intended to solve - massive
complexity, difficult organizational schemas and often only a single context supplemented
with a keyword search - all creating bottlenecks to locating enterprise information
timely. Simply put, they can all too quickly assemble too much information without an easy
way to find it.
Unfortunately, most organizations have made significant investments into these
technologies. In some organizations, an Intranet or Portal is the new cornerstone of the
IT architecture. But since users find these difficult and cumbersome to use, the company
is not generating the maximum return on their investment.
Portals and Intranets need the intelligence offered by eCommerce Consortium's
innovative technology to be able to easily and dynamically allow access to enterprise or
personal information based upon perspective, need or area of expertise.
By embedding eCommerce Consortium's Knowledge Enabling technology into your
Portal or corporate Intranet, you can realize the benefits envisioned and deliver not only
information - but Knowledge that can facilitate communication, collaboration and sharing
across both organizational and geographic boundaries.
