Information in context. Simplified community management ...

  1. 1. Information in context. Simplified community management. Faster content integration. PeopleSoft Enterprise Portal A portal is mandatory if you want your enterprise to operate in real time. In The Real-Time Enterprise™ you remove layers of intermediaries, con- tinuously monitoring your business. Your employees access information in real time at the moment of interaction with your customers, suppliers, and partners—and your enterprise reacts instantly to business changes. The portal brings it all together: business processes, departmental sites, knowledge management resources, enterprise applications, analytics, web content, and more. The portal makes your people more effective by giving them the exact information they need, based on their roles, in a rich business context. Connect people to business processes in real time—with the PeopleSoft Enterprise Portal.
