New Portal Evaluations include Liferay, IBM WebSphere, Oracle, SharePoint and others

I'm excited to announce that RSG has just released an update to our Enterprise Portals vendor evaluations.

This is a comprehensive overhaul to the report, not just in terms of content but also in structure and evaluation criteria. We'll blog about the new format separately, but the idea is to present to you the most differentiating attributes of these vendors in a way that is easy to consume, without compromising on our hard-hitting reviews.

The new Version 11.0 includes updated evaluations of eight vendors in two categories:

  • Infrastructure Vendors, include IBM WebSphere, Microsoft SharePoint, Oracle WebCenter, and SAP NetWeaver
  • Specialised Vendors, include Backbase, Liferay, OpenText, and Plone

For each of these evaluations, we have strengthened our coverage across all criteria — Strategic Considerations, Use Case fit, Portal Services, and Technology.

The Portals marketplace is less fragmented than the others we cover. A few years back, a new breed of mashup vendors started emerging but most of them have since faded away. As a result, we've dropped coverage of those mashup vendors to keep the evaluations focused and relevant.

As a reminder, you can use the RealScore Portal Effectiveness Model and other tools in conjunction with our evaluations for your projects.


Our customers say...

"Every organisation considering portal technology should obtain a copy of the Enterprise Portals Research, to gain access to best-practice approaches and concepts, built up from real-world experience."

How did our 2017 predictions fare?

Like every analyst firm RSG makes annual predictions, but uniquely in the industry, we go back each year to evaluate our own prescience.

There is no such thing as a DXP

I don't know any enterprise customer that wants — or believes it remotely possible — to obtain all those services from a single vendor. No, this is a vendor fantasy, getting peddled by analyst shills.
