As enterprises expand their Web footprints by deploying more sites, and as mobile apps become the norm, enterprises should rationalize the tools used and implement a platform approach for the development of websites, portals and mobile apps (see "A Platform Approach for Websites, Portals and Mobile Apps Leads to Faster Time to Market and Improved User Experience").
