Microsoft Axapta Enterprise Portal enables customers, vendors, business partners and employees to directly access relevant business information and conduct business transactions with Microsoft Axapta through personalized, role-based Web portals.

Enterprise Portal 4.0 will be enabling key workflows on web and unlocking data kept in ERP systems and making it work with collaboration platforms which is going to open up new opportunities for business productivity and will be a great strategic investment for company of any size.

Axapta has a great development, customization and extension platform.
Similarly Windows SharePoint Services has rich out-of-the-box functionality and full fidelity of ASP.NET.  Enterprise Portal sits on the culmination of these two great platforms and provides the best of both worlds.
