The portals are web-based applications that help the delivery of information, communication, cooperation and process automation by using interconnected applications and web services.

There are two types of portals: Intranet and Extranet. The intranet type is accessible from inside the organization, while the extranet type is accessible from outside the company.

The role of the intranet is to improve the business process and to offer the employees the ability to share documents and information upon an easy manner, and to spare time in their daily activity.

The extranet portal is intended to interact with the beneficiaries and the partners of the institution who can access the information required for a good cooperation through an external portal.
The security is ensured by a differentiated management in accessing information, based on users’ profiles.
