Like the ugly duckling of fairy tale fame, once-awkward corporate intranets are now the most beautiful app on the server farm. Social intranets are the workspace in which knowledge workers live – a portal to the tools, content, and applications needed to perform their daily responsibilities. Once huge document graveyards for static corporate content, traditional intranets have been transformed using Web 2.0 social technologies into collaboration platforms that foster innovation and empower workers to extract, create, share, publish, and update information in real-time. This white paper from Socialtext looks at the myriad benefits delivered by social intranets. It also looks at how to build a modern intranet and drive adoption.
