According to some individuals, portals are dead. However, students and faculty continue to struggle with the shear volume of university applications and web sites. They seek a way to abstract and personalize their individual views of the university. This session seeks to motivate the case for a portal and why uPortal is a great long-term solution. Furthermore, we want to examine how portals fit into enterprise strategies such as mobile, web services, etc. At BYU, we have been running uPortal for our enterprise portal for several years. Recently, we have undergone a re-evaluation of our portal strategy. We will share the lessons BYU has learned and our experience on why uPortal is an attractive solution to build the foundation for the future.
