Start here to understand how to implement the SAP portal.
The portal offers a single point of access to SAP and non-SAP information sources, enterprise applications, information repositories, databases and services in and outside your organization - all integrated into a single user experience. It provides you the tools to manage this knowledge, to analyze and interrelate it, and to share and collaborate on the basis of it.
For portal concepts and overview, see the introduction of the Portal Documentation.

Web Dynpro is a development environment for building user interfaces. Web Dynpro applications can be integrated and displayed in the portal. For more information, see the following:
- Portal Integration of Web Dynpro Applications (2004)
- Web Dynpro Applications for the Portal (2004s)
