Intranet design and development
An intranet represents the use of Internet tools within an institution. An intranet is a private network accessible only to an organization’s staff. Typically, a wide range of information and services from the organization’s internal IT systems are available that would not be available to the public from the Internet.
The use of intranets within organizations started in the 1990s. In their first incarnation, intranets were very simple. They didn’t take full advantage of the opportunity presented by a shared private network. Mostly, they consisted of a single page of general information applicable to everyone at the company.
As the World Wide Web vastly expanded, intranets evolved also. Intranet now is synonymous with a program that is accessed through an internet browser. Today’s intranets provide organizations with an exciting set of tools and technologies designed for communication between organizations, solely for the private use of those organizations and their employees. James Robertson, perhaps the world’s foremost authority on intranets, says the modern intranet is now much more than a place to store static corporate content—it’s becoming a key tool for organizational success.
Today’s intranet is a well-oiled machine with intuitive features, time-saving elements and an increased capacity for collaborative efforts.
