A SmartPortal is an application that functions as a kind of entry gate on the web for information on a specific topic. The SmartPortal has all the characteristics of a search engine and presents a large amount of information from a large number of sources in a standardized fashion. This technology enables large international organizations to present their product and business information in a secure, representative and consistent format.
Access control can be managed quickly and easily, so that the user always knows exactly who has access to which information, applications and databases. The Logistics SmartPortal integrates all relevant components on a single platform. It has an open structure, and integration is easy to achieve. New data can be added quite simply via a central Content Management System (CMS). It also goes without saying that information can be published much more quickly via this SmartPortal. Finally, the cost of maintaining the central CMS is much lower than for a distributed solution.
