SAP NetWeaver Portal, Enterprise Workspaces: Overview Information

SAP NetWeaver Portal, enterprise workspaces are an add-on to SAP NetWeaver Portal. They are intended to provide a flexible, intuitive environment on top of the SAP NetWeaver Portal, which allows business users to integrate, organize and use various content such as applications, reports, dashboards, web content and documents either from SAP or Non-SAP systems. This environment provides two types of workspaces: personal and shared. Users can organize content for their own purposes in a personal workspace, or share the content with a team or group of colleagues in a shared workspace.


Enterprise Workspaces also extend SAP NetWeaver Portal with mobile, social and collaborative capabilities that improve productivity and user experience on multiple devices, with minimal IT dependencies. Enterprise Workspaces therefore contribute to SAP NetWeaver Portal, mobile edition.
