In the enterprise, we’ve come to associate portal software with words like clunky, outdated, and inconvenient. This is especially true when compared with mobile and other modern SaaS technologies.
But while portal technologies may seem like the tools of yester-year, the need for application integration, personalization, and connected experiences is still very much present in today’s workplace.
However, what many companies don’t realize is that not all portals are created equal. Forrester Research categorizes portals in two buckets: traditional, heavyweight solutions and pure-play, lightweight solutions.
Traditional, heavyweight portals sit on-premises and can support enterprises with complex needs, but require copious amounts of time to implement and maintain. Unfortunately, legacy portal technologies have not been able to keep pace with the demand for new capabilities, consistent experience across channels and scalability. Lightweight portals, on the other hand, offer a complete digital experience that is simple and easy to use, but lack the deep back-end integration and security that is often a prerequisite for large companies.
What the enterprise needs are portals that can combine the power of both heavyweight and lightweight solutions: a portal that can punch across on-premises and the cloud as well as provide quick integration, security, and an amazing user experience will be able to truly deliver a solution for the modern digital workplace. Sapho Employee Experience Portal consists of five key elements that create a continuous, consistent experience that empowers every department of an organization:
