We have just released a new Advisory Paper, "2012 Portals and Content Integration Market Analysis." This briefing offers a snapshot of trends in the current marketplace, as well as a comparative analysis of the relative risks associated with each portal and content integration vendor.
Portal technology remains quite relevant in an enterprise context, and the portal marketplace is not going away. Nevertheless, the marketplace is shrinking in terms of active vendors, in part because Web Content & Experience Management (WCXM) vendors are adding many "portal-like" capabilities to their offerings. More active vendors within the portal marketplace have responded to this challenge in multiple ways. Many have focused on providing better WCM capabilities and have incorporated features such as collaboration, support for cloud deployments, and mobile delivery capabilities.
