Portal technology can save money, improve usability and productivity.
Portals provide a unified platform for people to interact with other individuals, applications, data, processes, documents and content. They drive value to users through a consistent, easy to use, personalized and branded user experience. Portal applications and collaboration tools are often combined with an effective content management system (CMS) to build content approval workflow into Web publishing. Our CMS solutions provide the ability to deliver fresh, business-user maintained content targeted to communities of customers, business partners, and employees. This allows users to develop, test and publish content without IT bottlenecks - while still meeting auditing and compliance needs.
Summa has extensive experience implementing web portals, especially using the IBM WebSphere family of products, along with InterWoven and other CMS products. We’ve seen the results that a well-planned, well-designed portal or CMS solution can produce. Because many of us come from enterprise environments like yours, we understand the importance of collaborative planning and implementation – Summa’s strong suit – in ensuring successful adoption of the far-reaching organizational change desired in portal deployments.
Keep what works, improve what doesn’t.
Summa has implemented portal solutions that help companies provide services to customers, suppliers and partners. Our range of solutions includes internal, employee-facing portals, external-facing content and document distribution to B2B partner networks. Portals have played a key role in application modernization projects to extend legacy applications and data through new, easy to use portals. We’ve also worked to integrate CMS solutions into commercial software products for their content management needs.
Before any decisions are made, we will follow a process that walks your stakeholders through an exploration of portal capabilities, then drives the planning through analysis and design using proven IBM methodologies to understand how a portal will address your unique business processes and strategic goals. We’ll compare the value of various options and determine, together, what’s right for your organization. We’ll install and implement your solution using our unique, collaborative process of agile development, incremental delivery, customization as needed, and provide support and training to ensure adoption and success.
