    Great post Bob, people all too often ironge that many usees of a portal. As mentioned above, originally portals were more like directory listings to find related services or products.But with the sophistication of technology portals can be used for anything from an directory listing to actually putting together an entire ERP system to keep track of potential customers, order and replacement process management, to offering general sites and videos that act as a marketing engine, sales tool, operational tools for efficiency everything must be in alignment with back up processes in the event of delays/issues.Look at the auto and oil industry. These two industries have been utilizing global manufacturing and procurement on a global basis for as long as I have have been alive. you are correct, it is a matter of reverse engineering to portal to take into account any contingencies.Now, one you have your systems in place, it is time to integrate the various marketing and sales tools into your processes so no leads are lost due to lack of integration, all notes on potential customers and every touch point should be noted to analyze the success of any given marketing campaigns or activities.All this can be interfaced together to break down your business into the smallest components. .
