  • Patent number: 6424979
    Abstract: A system providing views of a technical architecture of an enterprise that take into account the content type interest, level of detail and time frame of desired information. A user, with a browser interface, selects a portal specifying the type of content to be viewed. A profile of the user indicates the level of detail and time frame of information to be obtained. The interface provides the user's selection of desired information within the portal in the form of a page request that is converted into queries of a database that seek content satisfying the type, level of detail and time frame attributes of the request. The content is formed into a web page and provided to the interface by the web server. Content is separated into atomic units allowing the information to be rearranged responsive to each user's needs.
