Have you been charged with implementing an intranet in your company? Perhaps you’re a business owner who recognizes the value of an intranet, but because you’re not an IT person thinks it might be too difficult to set one up? Maybe you’re a busy executive with many demands on your time who knows an intranet is a good idea but has found that there’s just too much information out there, making it difficult to get started. If these scenarios ring true for you, then MyHub’s complete intranet design guide will be essential reading.
Difficulty In Getting Started?
Implementing an intranet can be a daunting prospect. First, you may have to convince the CEO or board that it is a good idea. And then you will have to win over the staff body as well. Next, you need to decide what type of intranet is best for your organization and how it should be hosted. Once you’ve made those decisions, you will then need to decide on the design of the intranet as well as the content and a sitemap. And there are all the technical aspects to consider as well. From SSL to firewalls and hacking to HTML, it’s almost another language. And if you manage to navigate your way through all of that then there’s still staff training and ongoing management to consider. What’s more, try googling ‘setting up an intranet’ and you’ll find thousands of results usually focusing on only some aspects of the implementation rather than the whole picture. This only serves to add to the confusion. Exhausted from reading all that? Well, it’s no surprise that many business owners and managers put implementing an intranet in the too-hard basket.
