Enterprise Portal Development

Enterprise Portal Development

Exceptional has extensive experience creating Enterprise Portals, integrating existing applications and managing portal operations for Federal agencies, particularly in the Intelligence Community. In creating Enterprise Portals, we are product agnostic and have implemented platforms such as Oracle WebCenter Interaction and Microsoft SharePoint portals for customers.


Our approach is to employ experienced personnel and leverage vendor relationships to identify the gaps between COTS functionality and customer requirements, filling them with other products, open source tools, and/or custom development. Based on specific requirements, Exceptional develops a solution that is cost-effective and maintainable. As an example, a customer chose a sophisticated commercial Enterprise Portal product that met many of his or her requirements, including collaboration, document sharing/management, and extensive search, but realized the COTS product lacked branding and other functionality. Exceptional stepped in to customize the portal and fully meet the requirements.

Exceptional uses several different, increasingly complex methodologies to integrate existing applications into Enterprise Portals: “Link” integration provides users access to an existing application; “Shallow” integration provides a view into an application display or form; and “Deep” integration develops a custom interface using application web services, or the application is modified to use Portal APIs and scripting to integrate Portal features, such as personalization or search.

Our software engineering staff brings professional expertise, education, training and domain knowledge to all Enterprise Portal engagements, enabling us to apply a range of technologies and methodologies. These include GIS, Composite Application and Business Process Management, Enterprise Collaboration, and Enterprise Content Management to our unique solutions, while also keeping in mind security and privacy concerns.
