  • Best Practices for Intranet Killer Apps

    by Lau Andreasen

    While some killer intranet applications are not directly business-focused, they can play a vital role in promoting the intranet to staff and stakeholders. This workshop demonstrates best practices for using intranet killer apps and highlights pitfalls to avoid when developing and implementing features that should ideally help to drive the intranet forward.

    Lau Andreasen untangles intranet kills apps, focusing on some of the most popular: “who’s who”; collaboration; “buy and sell notice boards”; “company discounts”; and social networking tools such as blogs and wikis. He looks at common issues when working with these apps and shares lesser-known killer apps such as photo-sharing, room locator, and employee introduction workflows, from across industries and sectors.

    Whether you are working on your first killer app or already have several on your intranet, come and learn from the different approaches, compare your own killer apps, and take away tangible recommendations.

    This workshop draws on real-life examples, including screen shots from members of the J. Boye community of practice, combined with years of research on intranets and portals. Whether you are attempting to launch your first killer app or already have several running on your intranet, there should be plenty to learn from these different approaches, and you will leave with a number of proven and tangible recommendations

  • The role of the intranet in the digital workplace of the future

    by Guy Van Leemput

    In more and more organizations, the intranet is growing beyond its original role as an internal communications channel and portal for productivity tools. At the same time, companies are rethinking the ways to get productive work done, putting more emphasis on teleworking, cross-team collaboration and employee engagement. The intranet of the future must support and stimulate this new way of working. To reach this 'digital workplace' you will need to address some fundamental questions:

    What are the priorities and the right level of ambition for my organization's intranet?
    Who are the key stakeholders and how do they expect the intranet to evolve?
    How will I set concrete targets and measure progress against them?
    This tutorial will give you some of the answers and will encourage you to work together with your colleagues to find additional ideas and insights. You will review various aspects of what the digital workplace of the future could mean for you:

    Collaboration on the intranet
    The "social" intranet
    Mobile access to the intranet
    Personalization and customization

    What you will learn

    You will find out what are the key trends for the intranet/digital workplace of the future. You will be challenged to think about what these trends mean for your organization, and how you can integrate them into your current strategy and plans for the intranet.

    Who should attend

    Intranet managers and professionals who are involved in setting direction and implementing improvements for their organization's intranet.

    At 1:00pm to 4:00pm, Tuesday 8th May

  • UK Parliament Intranet goes mobile

    by Sharon O'Dea

    Imagine 300 senior managers, and their support staff, all joining your company on the same day. That’s the challenge that faced the UK Parliament following the last election. This new cohort of highly-skilled, highly mobile representatives demanded new and flexible ways of keeping in touch; a desktop intranet just doesn’t suit their ways of working. In response, Parliament delivered an award-winning mobile intranet.

    This had a simple design and delivered the key functionality an MP needs when out and about – a live feed of what’s going on in the chamber, a calendar of future business, maps and key contacts. This case study covers how they chose content and functionality, what technology choices were made, what they learned along the way, and how they’re building on this.

    At 11:15am to 12:00pm, Thursday 10th May
