What is the benefit of an enterprise portal in an organisation like The University of Edinburgh? While working to update the product roadmap for Portal Services, it led me to thinking about why we provide a service like the portal (MyEd).

As we are all adapting to the “new normal”, working techniques have changed tremendously. I am Tasniva Mumu, and I have been working with the University of Edinburgh Website and Communications team within Information Services for the last 6 months as a user experience intern.
