More than 50 software development companies are targeting the enterprise information portal market for customers and more are on the way. According to a recent white paper from Hummingbird Ltd., an enterprise software development company, more than 600 large, medium and small companies are already in the conceptual stage of EIP deployment. An additional seven percent are in pilot testing.

"Increasing user productivity by providing a single point of access to internal and external information is one of the primary motivating factors driving the adoption of enterprise information portals," the white paper says. "The majority of EIP solutions are primarily being deployed to support business-to-business and business-to-enterprise, but larger companies expect their EIP solutions to support e-commerce, customer relationship management, enterprise resource planning, self-service, customer service, customer self- service, marketing and account management."
