Assume you are a consultant with one of the application platform vendors (e.g., IBM, Oracle, SAP, Microsoft) and Robin called you for information regarding Enterprise Portals. Prepare a one-page summary of the advantages TRC might be able to achieve if they used an Enterprise Portal for each of the business units (and for TRC-wide operations). 2. After preparing the one-page summary, now prepare a 10-minute PowerPoint presen- tation on Enterprise Portals, focusing on the advantages for TRC of implementing this technology. (HINT: As a minimum, be sure to address such issues as scalability of the portal, reliability, performance, and fault-tolerance.) 3. What sort of implementation schedule would you recommend for TRC, that is, what steps are important in an orderly implementation of this technology? Explain. 4. Based on your research, which system do you recommend for TRC? Prepare a matrix that compares the different features of the different Enterprise Portal solutions that you considered.

In addition, the state legislature has financially supported infrastructure development for SU to help accommodate the sustained growth in enrollments. The campus has significantly and positively impacted the visual appearance and the economy of the city where it is located. The number of legacy systems across campus has adequately served SU in the past, but with the growth in enrollments, the university has also increased the number of faculty, support staff, and services. Currently, the core applications at SU include Blackboard, Lotus Domino, web self service, and legacy administrative applications for all other purposes. In recent meetings with the Provost of the university, Linda and her staff have responded to a number of concerns and problems from the Deans of academic departments on campus, as well as a number of the support departments, such as payroll, student financial aid, and HR. As Linda pointed out to the Provost and Deans, universities have unique technology challenges, such as an open technology environment 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and that is 365 days a year, not just when school is in session.
