Portal Fabric

The portal fabric is a concept whereby portals and Web resources adapt to users’ preferred environments and interaction patterns, rather than forcing them to change their behaviors based on a portal they’re visiting. The technology underpinnings of the portal fabric rely on standards for federated identity and access management, context awareness, social interaction, content interoperability, and presence awareness.
