Crystal Enterprise and Portal Applications

When describing Crystal Enterprise, the terms repository, personalized content, and Web delivery are often mentioned. Some of these terms are also offered when describing EIPs. So, even though the introduction to this chapter explained that Crystal Enterprise is not a portal, this seems contradictory. Is it an Enterprise Information Portal?

Although it does appear that Crystal Enterprise possesses and manifests portal-like functions such as searching, Web delivery, content management, and personalization, it’s important to understand that Crystal Enterprise is focused on providing rich information delivery capabilities. The goal of Crystal Enterprise is to be an open and flexible environment, providing a set of application services, file services, content services, and Web services for the consumption of a user brokered by a Web page, corporate Web site, or a portal.
