as intranets typically center around HTML pages and documents, they offer a valuable source of information that should also be available via a portal (e.g via the integration approach for documents that is provided by the KM platform).
However, if you talk to people, they very often have a clear distinction between a portal (this is more application driven e.g. via integration of business systems) and an intranet (HTML pages, documents as said above).
I would like to get some views on how you the connection between portals and intranets is seen by the group in this forum:
Will intranets (and web content management applications) gradually merge into the 'Super-Portal' or will they continue to exist next to each other with more or less sophisticated integration mechanisms ?
