Abstract On a high level of abstraction the storyboard of a Web Information System (WIS) specifies who will be using the system, in which way and for which goals. Storyboard pragmatics deals with the question what the storyboard means for its users. One part of pragmatics is concerned with usage analysis by means of life cases, user models and contexts. In this paper we address another part of pragmatics that complements usage analysis by WIS portfolios. These comprise two parts: the information portfolio and the utilisation portfolio. The former one is concerned with information consumed and produced by the WIS users, which leads to content chunks. The latter one captures functionality requirements, which depend on the specific category the WIS belongs to. Here we concentrate on information services and community WISs.
