Wither the Portal?

From Issue #31

Here’s a small note from Real Story Group that portends a larger shift in WCM – they are ending their dedicated research category for “portals” and just folding that over into a single scenario in their WCM stream.

[…] the Portal market has largely gone away. Witness IBM selling off its venerable WebSphere franchise to HCL.

We’ll write more about this trend in subsequent posts, but for now, I’ll say a short requiem for RSG’s decade-long Enterprise Portals evaluation stream: it was fun while it lasted. Except most Portal technology licensees would utter a different word than “fun.”

Especially with the trend towards page composition, is the market for portals being consumed by WCM with a few specific capabilities? Which vendors are positioning themselves specifically as a “portal” these days?
