Improved business collaboration and easier information sharing within an enterprise can provide a strong competitive advantage. Enterprise 2.0-enabled portals, composite applications and Web sites provide a way for enterprises to achieve their collaboration and communication goals of improving communication, increasing employee productivity, and promoting business agility. Planning a Web portal deployment has traditionally required time and technical expertise on many disciplines. Selecting portal software alone is not enough. Choosing hardware components such as servers, storage, and networking that can provide a solid foundation, and integrating and deploying the software infrastructure, including the Web, application, and database server software, is equally important.
