The Portals component provides access to one or more business applications. Depending on their configuration, the applications empower you to:
- Work with reports to analyze, visualize, and discover data.
- Create report snapshots and bookmarks.
- Collaborate with your colleagues, share reports, snapshots, and other documents.
- Create Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote, and Adobe PDF presentations and booklets containing reports and other content.
- Monitor various business alert reports.
- Access IBM Cognos tools directly in Portals.
Each Portals application can contain one or more tabs that may contain various types of content. Tabs are used to organize content in an application by subject area, department, or other logical business groupings.
