We are starting a project with the following objectives:
a) Host brochureware/public web sites for member companies to market their products, utilize cross sell opportunities etc
b) Host web sites for partners to promote our products
c) Host web sites for partners to do business with us (secure content, personalized content)
d) Link to relevant applications (POS, Self service etc) from these web sites with a single sign on capability
e) Applications owned by different member companies have different security implementations (Database, LDAP, Custom, Siteminder etc), we should be able to link to all these applications transparently from a user perspective.
I do not know of a single product or a suite of products that can address all our security and integration needs. Please advise.
