Public Sector City Portal based on SAP NetWeaver Portal

The SAP NetWeaver Portal serves thousands of customers around the world across industries, scenarios and use cases. Today I would like to share with you some insights of the SAP NetWeaver Portal for the Public Sector scenario – City Portal.

Let’s warm up with a short video:

The SAP NetWeaver Portal supports cities to address key urban scenarios as listed below:

SAP NetWeaver Portal for Governments Overview.jpg

The SAP NetWeaver Portal for Governments enables customer to build an external facing citizen portal providing various capabilities and scenarios:

  • Information based Government Portal – newspaper like portal with rich and diverse content and user experience, outlining the government attractions, information about government services, etc.
  • Self-Service Government Portal – information and applicative services, providing self service capabilities in diverse business areas such as: education, parking, business services, billing, etc. 
  • Citizen Government Portal (a.k.a. MyCitizenPortal) – personalized user experience built and organized by the user (citizen) aimed to boost the citizen’s productivity when accessing the portal.
  • Citizens Social Portal – additional social capabilities such as communities, forums and feeds allowing citizens to collaborate and contribute content to the public.

All these scenarios are “powered” today by the existing capabilities of the SAP NetWeaver Portal – core, mobility, content management and cloud. I recommend you to read also Paul O’Sullivan blog with more details and information.

      Hi Aviad,

      excellent blog, I love the concept and again opening/increasing the scope of Portal, perfect.

      I wasn't aware of / had missed Paul's blog, so thank you for the link.

      All the best,

      Nice blog. Good to know there is lot many things happening on Portal this year . In terms of the Framework/Layout, is the portal displayed in the video out of the box feature or custom built for demonstration purposes?

      it looks like Portal On Device and the Launcher applications.

      This is Portal, but not as most people know it 🙂

      As I've said before, Portal On Device looks better than the Portal on PC.

      Hi Murali,


      This is a demo system that we built on top of the existing
      capabilities of the portal – AFP, WPC, PSM, KM, mobile portal,… we usually talk
      about the fact that the SAP NetWeaver Portal is open and extensible – this is a
      very good example showing the extensibility of the portal, while leveraging the
      same exact portal that we are all familiar with.

      Hi Aviad,

      and that is precisely my point why I think in the connected scenario SAP have aced it with POD, because it is leveraging the existing investment and extending its usage scope.
