A portal is generally a type of Extranet that can is created for a specific purpose and often a specific group of users. Portals can be done as part of a Customer Appreciation program, a VIP type program allowing users access to "special content" no available to others, and much more.
An enterprise portal, also known as an enterprise information portal (EIP) or corporate portal, is a framework for integrating information, people and processes across organizational boundaries. It provides a secure unified access point, often in the form of a web-based user interface, and is designed to aggregate and personalize information through application-specific portlets. One hallmark of enterprise portals is the de-centralized content contribution and content management, which keeps the information always updated.
