A proven process for portal projects.

Information Strategy

You tell us about your business problem, architecture strategy, and the overall content you want on the portal. We then benchmark current systems and processes, review your architecture, assess security needs, and conduct a content audit.

Governance

Governance of the portal is critical. We will help you map out key stakeholders and content owners, as well as how requests for modifications or enhancements to the portal should be managed. We also help you define the operational policies for the portal, and how to solicit feedback.

User Experience & Technology Roadmaps

We work with you to understand who will be using the portal and what will they be using it for. We also assess your current technology footprint and how that aligns with your desired portal capabilities. We then create wireframes, mock ups, user journey maps, and a technology scope and requirements document.

Execution & Delivery

Fishbowl’s portal team can manage all aspects of your project. From the initial solution and technical architecture design, to creating the project plan, developing the features and components, providing knowledge transfer and documentation, and supporting your team at launch – our comprehensive portal capabilities are ready for you.

An Agile-like approach to portal development

Managing the people and process of a portal  project can be challenging. Fishbowl simplifies this with our Agile-like approach to portal development. Through this iterative portal build process you will be provided with early and often visual validation to decide what features are most important and should be prioritized for development. The result: accelerated time to market, less waste, and more happy users.
