2016 Enterprise Portals Market Analysis

The enterprise portal marketplace is small and gradually shrinking, with fewer general purpose portal offerings than there were five years ago. However, for a number of scenarios, especially those that are complex and require heavy integration, portal tools can be a suitable fit.

In fact, portal tools may be more suitable than other tools if you require:

  • Application-driven experiences as opposed to content-driven websites
  • Heavy aggregation and integration with external or internal applications
  • A dashboard-based user experience

In our Enterprise Portals marketplace briefing, 2016 Enterprise Portals Market Analysis, we provide an overview of the key players as well as a comparative analysis of the relative risks and opportunities associated with each vendor via RSG's "Reality Check" chart. Additionally, we also offer a snapshot of other trends in the current marketplace. In particular, we explore the following trends:

  • A Small and Continually Shrinking Marketplace
  • Recurring Question: Do I Need a Portal or…?
  • Portal Tools as Digital Experience Platforms
  • Portal Tools Are an Important Component of the Digital Workplace

How did our 2017 predictions fare?

Like every analyst firm RSG makes annual predictions, but uniquely in the industry, we go back each year to evaluate our own prescience.

There is no such thing as a DXP

I don't know any enterprise customer that wants — or believes it remotely possible — to obtain all those services from a single vendor. No, this is a vendor fantasy, getting peddled by analyst shills.
