The enhanced portal, based on Open Standards and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) will provide a "single point of entry" to government information and services across 5000 websites for e-governance and citizen/employee/tourist services, anytime, anywhere (http://www.ciol.com/content/developer/web_services/2006/106091802.asp). KPI (Key Performance Indicators) include increased quality of services, transparency, trust, and customer satisfaction.
Powered by IBM WebSphere Portal, the market leading portal software, the IBM solution includes IBM WebSphere Application Server; IBM Workplace Content Manager for web publishing and personalization; DB2 Universal Database for providing robust data storage; WebSphere Information Integrator OmniFind for intelligent search and navigation; and Rational Application Developer for application development. This will drive single sign on and security, personalization, electronic forms, and help get ready for transactional services.

So I get it, this will be probably one of the largest Portal implementations in the world? One of the largest SOA projects in the world. Quite a tribute to WebSphere Portal and associated software products. Any Architect's dream coming true.
