According to some individuals, portals are dead. However, students and faculty continue to struggle with the shear volume of university applications and web sites. They seek a way to abstract and personalize their individual views of the university. This session seeks to motivate the case for a portal and why uPortal is a great long-term solution. Furthermore, we want to examine how portals fit into enterprise strategies such as mobile, web services, etc. At BYU, we have been running uPortal for our enterprise portal for several years. Recently, we have undergone a re-evaluation of our portal strategy. We will share the lessons BYU has learned and our experience on why uPortal is an attractive solution to build the foundation for the future.

  • In the early days of the Internet, companies sought to give users the benefit of a consistent experience by building portals that integrated multiple activities. Portals are now mostly a thing of the past; a few large examples such as Yahoo! and MSN still exist, but by and large they have fallen victim to what must be the most important law of the Web: a different site is only a click away. As users sought out the best sites for any given purpose, the browsing experience fractured and became ad hoc. As a result, disaggregation of Web sites and services is now the norm.Phil Windley CTO KYNETX (Blog: Wed Feb 4 19:44:00 2009)
