Mar 2008 - Aug 2009  Contract as SAP Portal Architect

Project Description

As the SAP Portal Architect for the Catapult project working on the Basis team, I designed and implemented the EP 7.0 Federated Portal Network (FPN) running on IBM AIX/DB2 with Microsoft Active Directory as the central user repository consisting of a dedicated consumer and multiple producer portals. This architecture is the platform for multiple portals for customers, employees, project teams and suppliers. By sharing a common architecture, maintenance and licensing costs are reduced while allowing for different content and user interfaces for each portal. Two of these portals are externally facing which I architected utilizing Apache as a reverse proxy

The FPN landscape consists of a Consumer portal and two Producer portals behind SAP Web Dispatchers for sandbox, development, QA and production:
