    If the organization is very big and they want variety of reports in all possible dimensions then BI may be the prime component and we can't deny XI presence in that land scape because it is a very big organization.

    Incase of medium size or small size they may not need BI as their data may be managable amount.In this scenario they may also do not need XI if they do not have many systems and many trading/business partners.

    Coming to portal, Yes this is another very important component as end/super/business users are more interested in look and feel, of course EP just does not provide good look & feel as it also provides Single Sign On and other good stuff. When the organization grows bigger and bigger every component has it is importance.

    I know i am actually sharing very common things about all these components but i would like to extend this discussion to see some of the live examples to support the usage of each compenet so that we can make some meaningful matrix.
