Techopedia Explains Vertical Enterprise Portal (VEP)

This differs from a horizontal enterprise portal, which has menus and links to many diverse vertical enterprise portals across an organization.

For example, a Web payment portal designed to facilitate accounts receivable processes is a type of vertical enterprise portal because it focuses on one business process, or vertical segment of the business. By adding such VEPs together over time, a company may develop an entire enterprise portal, which can be used to support most business operations.
