How are organizations in government using portal technology? What portal applications are providing compelling ROI to healthcare providers? Why are banks leveraging Web portals for competitive advantage?
If you are doing business in one of these industries, or others, you probably already know how Web portals are being used to provide value...but do you know all the ways (or maybe you know a better way!)? Regardless of industry, we see Web portals commonly used for specific applications such as self-service. However within an industry, like healthcare, how "self-service" is delivered via the Web is conceptually the same as say retail, but the implementation differs.

As part of that, we have collected a lot of good case studies, as well as numerous code assets and other materials IBM has produced - by industry, and all related to WebSphere Portal - in new industry toolboxes for convenient industry-specific reference. Current industry toolboxes include:

As always, we on the WebSphere Portal team would also welcome your insight into how you are using portal in your industry (or capabilities you might need)...just drop a comment in the blog or shoot me an email.
