Make Content Management on your Intranet FUN

If you're used to managing an in-house built intranet or a Sharepoint site, you've probably looked at the title of this blog post and started laughing at its ridiculousness.

Create a Secure Intranet Web Application

In my last post, my aim was to provide value to IT administrators supporting their intranets and discuss how to optimize performance, covering topics around browsers, server hardware and configuration options available to you within the Intranet Connections platform. Continuing along that path, I would like to cover security, the common vulnerabilities found in web applications and the features available to you within Intranet Connections, including how to address these.

How to Launch a Successful Portal Naming Contest

Launching a new intranet can be an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming. Especially when you've put a lot of time and effort into the intranet and don't receive the user adoption rates you anticipated. A great way to engage users and promote intranet adoption is by including employees in the intranet portal naming process.

Why You Need a Portal Name Having an intranet

Improve The Employee Onboarding Process with the Intranet

Every organization must establish a proper employee onboarding process.  It can be a struggle to do this efficiently, especially lacking the proper processes and systems in place to perform the onboarding precisely and completely for each new employee.  Most companies create an onboarding checklists, detailed documentation and of course, plenty of forms to onboard a new employee.  But paper-based checklists, documents, and forms get lost, become outdated and often end in rouge processes being executed by different departments.

Do You Really Need an Intranet Solution?

As a web developer, I’ve worked for many organizations, both small and large, over the past 15 years. Technology in the workplace has changed and evolved a lot during that time. In fact, I remember when the term ‘intranet’ was in its infancy. Back then, the term “intranet” was often confused with “internet” and required some explanation. Simply put, an intranet is a protected network portal within an organization, whereas the internet is comprised of countless networks around the globe. But I won't go into too much detail about the history of the intranet - instead if you would like to learn more, check

How HR Can Make The Intranet Better For Employees

A few years ago I wrote about the HR Intranet. When you look at departments within an organization and how they relate to content on the intranet, HR and IT are two dominant teams that should have a strong presence. HR on the intranet is typically a heavily content-based and functional site, a place to view policies, handbooks, guidelines, benefits and payroll information. It is the go-to point for people-related processes. Can HR Intranets move more into engagement and mentorship, training and leadership? You bet they can, and the intranet is the best place to accomplish this. Putting a personality
