PMC235: Petrobras: SAP NetWeaver Portal as an Application Portal

On tuesday, October 19 I will present the 1h educational session PMC235: Petrobras: SAP NetWeaver Portal as an Application Portal (4:30 p.m.–5:30 p.m.). Petrobras is using the SAP Portal as an internal portal for accessing SAP data over the web. These applications span a wide range of use cases: from financial to HR applications. The portal itself is used by more than 60.000 users throughout Brazil.

I will present how and why we customized the portal to achieve:

  • High user satisfaction
  • Single Sign-on from the browser to the backend
  • Integration and access to backend data (WDJ/A, VC, BSP, Java)
  • Corporate design
  • Custom iViews (with support for several browsers)
  • Significant performance enhancements
  • Transparent user actions by analyzing access data
  • Maintenance and infrastructure

To conclude this blog a short outlook: Mobile SAP Portal

      it’s an ASUG session, so I will share how we are using the current SAP Portal (no add-ons, no 3rd party products).

    Its really nice with SAP TechEd just a week from now. But still its disappointing that even after getting the pass for the opening day from my Prof, I could not attend the event as I will be in Santa Clara for the World Tour. I hope both were on different days, so that I was able to attend the knowledge rich sessions in the TechEd. I really want to be at both the places. And probably with my interest in Portals/BI, this would have been a really good event to attend. Hope to get some updates on this topic in your blog after the TechEd and really hope that I get the pass for another day from my Prof

      Hi Simon,

      the presentation is on the TechED USB Stick and I believe that SAP is doing again the virtual TechED package that you can buy to gain access to all sessions.
