Review:

Getting a handle on an organization's related internal and external information is a daunting task. Building Corporate Portals with XML is a guide to moving to integrated Web portals to serve internal processes, external partners, and customers.

Heavily laden with theory, this title is best suited to system architects rather than developers under tight time constraints. Coauthor Clive Finkelstein is the creator of the Information Engineering methodology, which he uses to suggest approaches to moving legacy and relational data to portal access using XML as the information backbone. The discussions are thought-provoking and quite informative, but the acronym-heavy presentation is not for everyone.

After laying out the basic portal concepts, the authors move into the process of designing scalable information systems and modeling their data appropriately. The heart of the book focuses on enterprise metadata, how to define it, and how to implement it via XML. There are some concise examples of XML metadata implementation, but they are nestled within a rather complex discussion of the process of information analysis.

Although the focus of this title is Web portals, the majority of the book does not focus on Web site interfaces. Instead it probes deeper, offering a mile-high view of how to approach a wide-scale portal project. Don't look to this book for code snippets to implement on your Web site--instead, use it to develop a data-oriented mindset. --Stephen W. Plain

Topics covered: Strategic business planning, data modeling, metadata analysis and engineering, XML business reengineering, and quality initiatives.

From the Back Cover:

Corporate Portals provide secure access to vital information and systems from knowledge resources throughout the enterprise and the world

You know the data is there. Why can't you get the information you need? Both administrators and managers alike know the frustration of maneuvering through legacy systems as well as modern complex data systems to obtain vital information. Now, for the first time, well-known authors Clive Finkelstein and Peter Aiken show you how to solve this problem using the most powerful technology available-Corporate Portals.

Corporate Portals unlock essential information from both structured data in relational databases and legacy systems and unstructured data in all documents and graphics files and provide access to the cumulative knowledge resources of an organization through a single corporate gateway.

Building Corporate Portals with XML is the foundation book to implement this revolutionary knowledge management technology. The book takes the reader from the planning stages to creating and implementing a new Corporate Portal using the Extensible Markup Language (XML) The book also clearly explains how to convert data from a legacy system into a modern Corporate Portal.
