UK Parliament Intranet goes mobile

A session at J. Boye

Thursday 10th May, 2012

11:15am to 12:00pm (EST)

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.
