    Hi Venkat,

    1. Different Types of Portals :

    Vertical Enterprise Portal (VEP) or Vortals

    http://www.CNET.com

    http://www.MP3.com

    Horizontal Enterprise Portals (HEP) or Megaportals

    http://www.yahoo.com

    http://www.AOL.com

    Intranet

    Also called Enterprise portals

    Internet

    Internet gateways or libraries (not focused on internal enterprise functions)

    What makes SAP EP stand out is the integration of people, process and information.Also, EP is a role based access and can be accessed from anywhere and any device.

    Hope this answers your question.

    REWARD POINTS IF HANDY!

      Hi Venkat,

      The various types of Portals can be found out thru this PDF

      [http://www.anexinet.com/pdfs/white_papers/anexinet_portal-whitepaper62005.pdf]

      And why SAP-EP stands out is bcoz of the understated reasons:-

      SAP Enterprise Portal unifies key information and applications to give users a single view that spans the enterprise. It allows you to take full advantage of all your information resources -- and maximize the return on your IT investments.

      SAP Enterprise Portal provides a complete portal infrastructure, with robust knowledge-management and collaboration functionality. Its predefined business content accelerates implementation and reduces the cost of integrating your existing systems.

      Fast and Effective Integration:-

      SAP Enterprise Portal allows you to quickly and effectively integrate SAP solutions, third-party applications, legacy systems, databases, unstructured documents, internal and external Web content, and collaboration tools. It uses open standards, Web services, and tight integration with other SAP NetWeaver components to support heterogeneous systems from all major technology providers. And it comes with built-in support of Java, Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE), and Microsoft .NET technology.

      With SAP Enterprise Portal, employees, partners, and customers have instant, secure, and role-based access to the information and applications they need. Employees can identify and resolve business issues faster, more effectively, and at a lower cost -- resulting in measurable benefits and strategic advantage.
