Everything always in view. The "People", "Applications", "Documents" and "Content" are comprehensively considered and covered in every VANTAiO portal solution:
Dedicated service and targeted cooperation with external partners are two of the most important keys to business success. An extranet portal presents all relevant information and applications in a clear and user-friendly way. Saving time while in the meantime increasing the quality. Thus, smooth interaction and cooperation across company boundaries becomes a reality.
The users are external users who are not employees of the company. Continuous feedback mechanisms are rarely established. What is important to these users?
The use of the solution should be possible without in-depth introduction or training. Intuitive navigation, usability and look & feel are very important in the extranet.
Users expect typical web interfaces for application or transaction services in the extranet. SAP UI techniques from internal use (SAP GUI, Web Dynpro, ...) are to be checked for their use suitability.
Challenge: A lot of potential locations, Internet connection of the user plays a very important role. Good network performance (low data transfers, optimized requests on backend applications).
Depending on the nature of the extranet portal and the targeted target group, many device and browser classes must be taken into account for access. This is especially true for extranet solutions in the B2C area.
High security standards required, especially as a backend connection is required. Frequent external review (pen test, audits ...). Delegated administration of access shifts a (human) partial responsibility to the customer or supplier.
Users can register (optional: self-registration) and receive an authentication for special content (or download areas) or applications (shops / eCommerce, forms, reports) via your login.
Sub-segments of an extranet portal should often be visible to the public without authentication on the Internet. This can be a complete web presence, or just initial information or pre-printed pages for the actual extranet portal.
Exciting extranet solutions require a wide variety of content: static and dynamic web content, application integration, Pusk mechanisms, such as RSS or newsletter.
Mapped processes and information units in the extranet almost always have a counterpart on the intranet. This must be taken into account in the design so that a continuous process chain is created.
