Cloud portals are becoming increasingly popular in IT circles in recent times. They provide web-based interfaces that allow users to easily buy and provision cloud services with minimal technical knowledge. Be they hosted apps, services, desktops or IaaS, corporate resources can be hosted in the cloud. Cloud portals are user-friendly and intuitive, and support both tech-savvy and non-tech people.
According to Forrester Research, businesses that are not very infrastructure-oriented want cloud portals that give quick and easy access to corporate resources without requiring complex configuration settings. At the same time, IT managers want cloud portals that provide an easy way to track application performance, load balancing and optimized configuration. Also, 46% of enterprises are building cloud portals for internal use, so that resources can be accessed quickly.
Ideally, businesses should be able to deploy cloud portals quickly and easily. They should also be able to customize these portals so that logged users can access only the required information. With privilege-based customization, resource access becomes fast and simple, while security is highly prioritized. It is very important to organize information in the portal, and to provide mobile access, considering that significant numbers of users may need to access the portal using smartphones. 2X RAS Portal provides a comprehensive solution to all these business demands.
