Ten challenges for a successful extranet portal

Demands and priorities of users are more difficult to assess

The users are external users who are not employees of the company. Continuous feedback mechanisms are rarely established. What is important to these users?

Very good user experience required

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.

Applications expect web standards

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.

Response time behavior for globally distributed users

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).

Device diversity. Multi-device and multi-browser support

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. 

Security requirements due to Internet visability

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.

Self-registration and authentication

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.

Anonymous access to public content and applications

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.

Holistic content and interactivity

Exciting extranet solutions require a wide variety of content: static and dynamic web content, application integration, Pusk mechanisms, such as RSS or newsletter.

Interaction with the Intranet Portal or Digital Workplace

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.

This is what your VANTAiO Extranet Portal might look like.
