SAP NetWeaver Portal (SAP EP) is one of the building blocks in the SAP NetWeaver architecture. With only a Web Browser, users can begin work once they have been authenticated in the portal which offers a single point of access to information, enterprise applications, and services both inside and outside an organization.

SAP EP also provides the tools to manage this knowledge, to analyze and interrelate it, and to share and collaborate. With its coherent interface, role-based content, and personalization features, the portal enables you to focus exclusively on data relevant to your daily decision-making processes.

Knowledge Management offers capabilities that everyone can use to distribute and access unstructured information within an organization through a heterogeneous repository landscape. Collaboration brings users, information, and applications together to ensure successful cooperation. All collaboration tools and channels are easily accessible directly from the portal. These tools include collaboration rooms, instant messaging, chat, e-mail, and calendar integration.

SAP Unification Server enables an enterprise to integrate the resources of its information systems and provide unified access to its structured data. It is the engine driving the unification of databases, legacy systems and enterprise applications in SAP EP.

The Portal is used for different purposes.

  • Integration

  • Authorization
