The Enterprise Information Portal (EIP) provides access - a single point of personalized, on-line access - to business information and knowledge sources, and real-time access to core application and processes. EIP is defined as an ultimate window that presents e-business fruitful results. Our research focuses on investigating the relationship between organizational characteristics and whether EIP is adopted in the business operations and the relationship among the function application degree, implementation type, integration ability, and users of EIP and e-Business performances. The result of our study shows that: (1) Between those organizations have and those have not adopted EIP, there are significant differences in the maturity and familiarity of information technologies, and organizational size; (2) In the way of implementation EIP, the relationship among function application degree, implementation type, integration ability, and e-Business performance are also significantly influence; (3) The impact between function application degree of EIP and e-Business performance will be enhanced by high e-business degree; (4) The impact between implementation type of EIP and e-Business performance will be intervened by e-business degree; (5) The implementation time of EIP has no significant impact on the relationship between implementation EIP and e-Business performance.
