Avalon in the News

DALLAS, May 1, 2006 – Avalon’s portal expertise is detailed in the May 2006 issue of Application Development Trends. This application integration feature takes a look at the planning and design strategies involved in delivering functional and economic portal solutions.

In the article, Joe Hilger, Practice Manager for Avalon’s Washington D.C. office, discusses the use of portals for presentation level data integration. He expands on this concept with an example of how a portal can be used as a platform to drive all of the SOA initiatives for any large organization.

Also prominently featured in this article is Salt Lake-based Intermountain Healthcare for its portal initiative driven by the large healthcare company ’s e-business group; a portal initiative for which Avalon provided consulting expertise. Avalon’s consultants teamed with Vignette and Intermountain Healthcare to develop a portal framework that serves as a platform for all of the company’s portal sites. The framework needed to be implemented quickly and pull together not only diverse functions but also disparate systems. The resulting standards-based system of composite portal and portlet applications allows users to interface seamlessly and access critical healthcare data in a timely, easy, and logical fashion.
