The IT Executive Holy Grail: Making IT Cool in Your Enterprise

Thumbnail image for geekCool.png

More than a dozen times in my career — as a consultant or an employee of an Information Technology (IT) department — I've heard the same refrain. Some IT executive would express a desire to "make IT cool."

I always viewed the executives who expressed this as a little misguided, both in the way they framed their objectives and the ways they navigated toward their aim. While I could articulate why they were likely to be unsuccessful, I was never able to offer a viable and easily understood alternative. Until now.

Transforming Traditional Intranets: Three Places to Focus

Many of today's intranets are frustrating: Frustrating for employees to use, for content owners to govern, for IT to integrate, maintain and support. It's time to modernize and mobilize. But, what should a modern, mobile intranet do and look like?

Talk Faster: You Only Have Seconds to Make Your Point [Infographic]

ClockDid you get the impression your boss tuned you out while you were making that elaborate presentation? You're probably right. A new survey from the Chicago-based The BRIEF Lab found nearly three in four professionals lose interest in presentations within a minute — and have equally limited attention spans for email and conversation.

Today's Intranet is a Mix of Old and New

Social Business, Today's Intranet is a Mix of Old and NewTraditional corporate intranets are often neglected and underused -- few would refute that argument.

Reinvent the Intranet with SharePoint Search and Social

Social Business, Reinvent the Intranet with SharePoint Search and SocialWhen SharePoint 2013 arrived, we immediately noticed the huge investment Microsoft made into anything related to search. But we still see many intranets designed as traditional internal communications: a home page with a carousel, useful links that are often not so useful, sections you have never clicked on and -- of course -- the weather.

How do the two relate? In this article I will focus on using search to reinvent and make the SharePoint Intranet much more dynamic.

Intranet Search: More Than Just a Search Box

Social Business, Intranet Search Has to be More Than Just a Search BoxI’ve just come back from another highly successful KMWorld conference in Washington where over 900 people seemed more than happy to be entombed in the subterranean conference suites of the Renaissance Hotel for four days. With no specific intranet track this year, presentations on intranets popped up in the Knowledge Management (KM), SharePoint and Enterprise Search tracks.

In the conversations I had there with intranet managers, a common theme stood out: the under-appreciated value of search in intranets.

The Missing Link in SharePoint Site Usability

The topic of SharePoint site usability never grows old. With every new version of SharePoint that comes out, Microsoft has touted that it is extremely intuitive and easy to use, and judging from the number of licenses sold, many organizations seem to have bought into this myth. What they are not told is what it actually takes to make SharePoint sites user-friendly.
