2011 Portal & Content Integration Market Analysis

  • 11-Feb-2011

Today we published our 2011 Portal and Content Migration Market Analysis. It also includes a "Cross-Check" chart that visually charts risks and opportunities.  The briefing is available to our Portals stream subscribers.

Recall the many predictions that "mainframes were dying" -- yet they never died. Nor have enterprise portals.

The Portals marketplace is characterized by fewer players, but it remains active, with most vendors regularly releasing new updates. Also, there's a huge difference in how standard features -- such as personalization -- get implemented across different platforms.

So, the Portals marketplace is far from "commoditized." Our vendor evaluations cover such topics as mobile enablement, enhanced integration with content and analytics, lightweight alternatives (such as mashups and gadgets), and simpler APIs.

Portals Cross-check

The Content Integration marketplace, on the other hand, is quite young. Most vendors continue to evolve at a relatively fast pace. There's no real standardization and different players have taken very different strategies. For buyers, young marketplaces offer exciting opportunities -- as well as meaningful risks.

Our customers say...

"Organisations looking to implement an enterprise portal face a steep learning curve, and the Enterprise Portals Research can help to reduce this pain. Highly recommended."

Customers and consultants have a love-hate relationship with marketplace "quadrant" diagrams. You suspect there's something not right in the arbitrary positioning...and you're correct!...

Thanks for the Book Reviews!
