    Hi,

    The first two points don't describe FPN and rest two are also partially correct.

    Refer to

      Hi Prashant ,

      Thanks for your reply.

      I have some other points to clarify with you on federated portal. currently i have to work to prepare presentation on federated portal. and the following content i had put in the presentation. can you please add some points on the same and validate whether the existing points are correct in the each area as below mentioned.

      FPN Pain Points

      1) Traditional Portals (or lets term them as non-Federated portal) has the stringent problem of maintenance.

      2) As the Portal grows in size and content with more parts and codes, consequently there is a proportional rise in maintenance effort in terms of testing, bug fixing, development co-ordination and shifting the portal from development to production environment

      Can you please add some more points, here in the above pain points area.

      How can FPN solve problems

      1) Federate portal with its feature to allow developers to be independent of each other while developing, updating or testing their portlets, irrespective of geographical location and with the added advantage of not having to redeploy the whole of portal for every single change in the producer portal has been able to bring down this cost of maintenance and cost of deployment significantly.

      2) Federated Portal has also reduce the cost of Portal Testing and has promoted the reuse of portal Components, as a portlet exposed by the producer can be consumed by multiple consumers without the overhead of integration, deployment, configuration, and testing that would be required otherwise.

      3) Another key advantage of the Federated Portal Network is its support for remote role assignment providing an easy way to support the need for role synchronization between the different portals in the federation.

      4) Interoperability is also supported by means of WSRP between third parties (SAP or non-SAP) and our Federated Portal.

      Can you please add some more points on this above area?

      Advantages of FPN

      Technical Adv

      1) Reuse of content and applications throughout the network

      2) Integration of non-SAP portals into the SAP NetWeaver platform, allowing the exchange of WSRP-compliant applications within SAP NetWeaver Portal

      3) Incremental investment allows bandwidth, hardware, administration, and other infrastructure costs to be distributed over time, keeping pace with the development and deployment of departmental portal servers

      4) Scalability lends itself to supporting a large variety of connected systems

      5) Secure access to content applications spread worldwide

      Can you please add here some more if required

      Business adv

      1)Increased autonomy of business units

      2)Higher return on investment (ROI) achieved by optimized reuse of human capital and hardware resources within the company

      3) Planning and implementation at the departmental level ensures a manageable deployment.

      4)Ownership at the departmental level allows executives and managers to develop a portal tailored to the departmentu2019s unique needs.

      5)Budgeting responsibilities can be clearly assigned at a departmental level

      Please get back to me on the same .

      Thanks in advance

      Best Regards
