A portal is a secure online environment that you enter when you log in somewhere. This secure online environment is therefore only accessible to authorized users. In other words: this information is not publicly available to everyone.
It is for good reason that it is called a ‘portal’. It is the online door to a central information environment. This allows you to link all kinds of things to the portal, such as:
- links to share information with each other
- knowledge base
In short, a portal combines all information flows in one online place. This makes collaboration, communication, process automation and knowledge sharing much more efficient.
