Q:  

What are the top enterprise information portal (EIP) vendors?

A:  

Douglas Hackney’s Answer: There’s a very complete list at the Data Warehousing Information Center: http://www.dwinfocenter.org/inf ofilt.html

Just about every vendor is claiming to be in the portal space. Caveat Emptor.

When you’re looking for a comprehensive view of a technology sector, it is an excellent time to leverage a contract or relationship with one of the major analyst firms such as Meta Group, Gartner, etc. This type of wide ranging view of what vendors are playing in which segment is probably what they do best. All the usual caveats apply about using their recommendations, i.e. use them for the big picture but be very wary of picking a specific vendor/tool based solely on their recommendation.
