META Group, Inc. announced the availability of its newest METAspectrum analysis, covering the enterprise portal framework market. Portal frameworks provide a pre-integrated set of services that are used to build portal interfaces. Identity management, personalization, page assembly, style sheets, search, taxonomy, content management, usage tracking, application integration, single sign-on and collaboration all play important roles in portal frameworks, which may either provide or help integrate these technologies. As portals become more ingrained in customer and employee business processes, the percentage of organizations that treat portals as core (non-discretionary) systems is expected to increase from less than 10 percent currently to 15 percent by 2004, ultimately reaching 35 percent by 2007.

"The portal market has garnered a great deal of attention, yet is only 40% penetrated at this point," said Craig Roth, vice president with META Group's Technology Research Services, and lead author of the report. "By year-end 2004, 85 percent of Global 2000 organizations will have selected an enterprise portal framework. As a result, we expect over 150 percent revenue growth for the portal market in 2004."
