The internet as world largest computer network contains an unbelievable amount of global available information. The plenty of information achieved a complexity that overstrained a lot of user and necessitated central and clear structuring and grouping. From this imperative portals emerged as personalized access to information and services.
Portals are only successful if they provide an attractive offer of information and services. To make information and services available to user of the portal integration is required. The focus of this work is the integration of services from Bildungsportal Thüringen, from the library and the Alumni-database of the TU Ilmenau into the Alumni-Weiterbildungswebportal. To integrate these services interfaces have to be designed and an appropriate integration-technology has to be selected.
The Bildungsportal Thüringen already has an interface for integration. This interface is particularly suitable for integration and makes a complete redesign unnecessary. In contrast, the two additional services do not own any interface.
Analyses show that the interface to the library shall be realized by a message-oriented-middleware and the interface to the Alumni-database by a web-service. After the conceptual design the interfaces are implemented prototypical.
