“more organizations that are sleeping through the social media revolution will jump on the bandwagon. 2010 will be the year of the social intranet.”
“Within organisations, we should start to talk about the “enterprise experience”. What experience do we want to provide to staff in their working lives? What systems should they be using, and how? How do they interact with the information and tools they need to do their jobs?”
BT has an intranet. It’s called the BT Intranet. It’s what it does that has created the reputation it now has rather than what it is called.
It’s what an intranet does that it important – not what it is called.
I feel you should go further than you have. In BT we use internet tools as well as intranet tools including Facebook, Twitter and RSS feeds of internal and external news for business purposeshttp://markmorrell.wordpress.com/2009/06/30/i-now-receive-only-the-information-i-need/.
I also feel work and personal lives are blurring in being separate distinctive things we do and we are doing more of these using intranet/internet tools.
As this evolves intranets could well become a redundant term and something far more embracing takes hold.
This will because of what people are doing rather than calling an intranet by another name.
“most interesting information is socially situated, socially constructed, or otherwise impossible to tear from its human roots and package into transferrable units of “knowledge”. This has major implications for the viability of certain kinds of information systems, educational programs, and the evolution of an “information society”. Yet, most information workers and information products appear to be oblivious to these implications.”
