Within the company we have several applications that are accessed by the users through a front office portal.
The portal is a web portal that each time serves more than 1 application.
The portals are integrated which means that data is being passed to and from the related applications without the user seeing which application he is actually working in.

  • Do you count the portal as 1 application ?

  • Do you only count the transactions related to each linked application ?

  • How do you handle counting portals ?

    That's depend from the user point of view.
    If the portal is a precise requirement and it is known to the user it can be counted.

    In your scenario It seems that the user is completely transparent to wich application is running. He sees the WEB Potal and a flux of data. In this context what you have to count is what the user sees.

    Of course, first of all, you are to establish who is the user.

    If the user can see the different applications and the portal is only a mean to input/view Data, then the portal can see a simple technical requirement.

    best regards

    The boundary:

    Defines what is external to the application.
    Is the conceptual interface between the ‘internal’ software and the ‘external’ user world.
    Acts as a ‘membrane’ through which data processed by transactions (EIS, EOs, and EQs) passes into and out of the application
    Encloses the logical data maintained by the application (ILFs).
    Assists in identifying the logical data referenced by but not maintained within the application (EIFs)
    Is dependent on the user’s external business view of the application. It is independent of technical or implementation considerations.
