Hi SAP Portal Community,
Today, I would like to introduce myself to you and invite you to follow a series of blogs that I intend to start in the next days. My name is Sibylle Brehm and I have been part of the portal Product Management team since the very beginnings of SAP Portal, although at that time my focus area was Knowledge Management. In the last years, I took over the responsibility for planning, setting up, and configuring our SAP NetWeaver Portal demo scenarios, for customer events like Sapphire and TechEd, for our standard demo landscape and also for specific customer meetings.
Here you can see some of the portals that I worked on:
Since the portal management team decided in 2010 to further enhance and enlarge the portal offering with the best-of-breed Content Management and Web Site Management solutions of our partner OpenText, these new capabilities also needed to be reflected in our demo scenarios. Thus, I had the opportunity to build up a lot of experience on the integration of SAP Portal Content and Site Management of OpenText with SAP NetWeaver portal, on the benefits of using these add-ons to the portal, on configuration and administration.
This has been quite a fascinating time to get to know these new products in detail with long hours and some ups and downs, lots of learning by doing and help from our colleagues in the Portal development team and at OpenText. And it is this experience that I would like to share with you in a blog series on creating sites with SAP NetWeaver Portal. These are the topics that I am going to tackle in my first blogs:
- Leveraging SAP Portal Site Management by OpenText for building external sites
- Accessing sites built with SAP Netweaver Portal and PSM on mobile
- Anonymous logon for external sites
- What to consider when changing the portal look and feel with a custom framework page
If you have any additional ideas and points of interest around this topic, please feel free to provide your suggestions by writing a comment on this blog. I promise to take a close look at your ideas and provide some details wherever possible.
So, stay tuned! The first blog is already available and the second one just around the corner.
