Amongst all the marketplaces we cover, the portals and content integration marketplace holds the fewest number of vendors. However, the technology is far from “commoditized.” The marketplace is very active, with several new releases by major providers. Hence, as a prospective portal customer, take a structured, multidimensional approach to identify the best solutions that meet your requirements. There are many approaches to categorizing the marketplace, including technical architectures, geographic footprint, likely cost, and target scenarios. These are useful criteria, but incomplete. Our approach additionally considers the pace of evolution, both within the vendor, and within the core toolset.
