 WhITE PAPER Te Static Intranet is so over…
Any enterprise is te sum o its people.Tat’s wy te best companies are invariably te ones tat are better atarnessing te passion, experience and expertise o teir people.It’s all about capturing and saring knowledge; ostering dynamic teamwork;and making better decisions, aster.Over te last decade, te Intranet as played an increasingly important rolein tis critical arena. For many companies, it’s te primary medium or col-laboration and knowledge saring.But today’s static Intranet model is starting to sow its age:
It’s a one-way medium
or ‘broadcasting’ inormation to te workorce
It’s over-centralized
– wit too muc control rom eadquarters andnot enoug contribution rom te real sources o knowledge
It fails to engage
– delivering a user experience tat pales in compari-son to te ric, interactive Web 2.0 and social media sites
It inhibits access to knowledge
– instead o acilitating itAs a result, most Intranets are under-valued, under-utilized and, rankly,underwelming.Tis workbook is about a new approac to teamwork and knowledgemanagement tat’s based on all te exciting Web 2.0 ideas tat are taking te public Internet by storm. It’s called te Social Intranet and it’s completely canging te way enterprises tink about communication, collaboration andknowledge assets – some call it Enterprise 2.0.EPiServer is at te oreront o tis quiet revolution because we’re one o  te rst companies to integrate te power o social media and community into an enterprise-class Content Management System. Te idea is simple:by combining traditional Intranet content wit te new generation o socialmedia tools and services – and making it all easy to develop, deploy and use – companies can unlock te people power tat drives success. We ope te ideas presented ere inspire you to try new tings wit your own Intranet.

The Wisdom o Crowds
Enterprise 2.0 makesaccessible the collectiveintelligence of many,translating to a hugecompetitive advantage in theform of increased innovation,productivity and agility 
2Imagine an Intranet tat your people really want to engage wit and contrib-ute to. An Intranet tat actually elps tem do teir jobs better – and enjo teir work-lives more. Were project groups orm spontaneously, users tagand bookmark avorite resources, and ‘top down’ inormation is supplement-ed by igly relevant user-generated content.Tat’s te Social Intranet: a knowledge base and collaboration platorm tat arnesses te power o social media to:Engage users in te mission o te enterprise
Encourage people to contribute teir ideas
Make it easy to capture, sare and discover knowledge
Support fuid, spontaneous and structured collaboration
Te Social Intranet supports all orms o communication and collaboration:
One to One
– wit instant messaging and email
One to Many
– troug blogs, video-saring and podcasting
One to All
– in orums and discussion treads
Many to Many
– in wikis, communities, orums and groupsIn sort, te Social Intranet is Facebook, YouTube, Skype, Blogger and Wikipedia all rolled into one service tat’s integrated wit your existingcontent resources, communication tools and knowledge assets.Te result: an incredibly powerul, enterprise-wide knowledge platormwit a riendly, amiliar ace.
Because knowledge is a critical competitive dimension
In te global, always-on, always connected world, te way companies cap- ture, sare and discover teir knowledge as a direct impact on eciency,decision accuracy and time-to-market.
Because it’s a medium of cohesion, inclusion and engagement
Tere aren’t many ways to get dispersed organizations working togeter,saring teir ideas and giving teir onest eedback. Te Social Intranetas te power to uel te new engaged workorce.
Because Generation Y is hitting the workplace
Younger employees are native to Facebook, YouTube and Flickr. I your Intranet just sits tere, so will your people.

harnessing te power o Enterprise 2.0
Te Social Intranet is appening now. Over te past ew years, pioneer-ing organizations ave been starting to integrate simple, standaloneeatures tat tap into te power o social media. But only now as it beenpossible to incorporate all te best o te social media world wit te ullcapabilities o traditional document, content and knowledge managementplatorms – witout te need to deploy serious IT resources.Te transition rom simple to static to social Intranet is almost complete.In te next ew years, most companies will be drawing on te power o social media to enric, enliven and empower teir Intranets.

Because collective intelligence beats gurus
Te collective intelligence o your workorce beats te wisdom o evenyour most experienced experts. But only i you can tap into it. Te SocialIntranet is a natural medium or ‘crowdsourcing’.
Because traditional document management isn’t friendly enough
Legacy document management systems are ard to use – so ewer peopleuse tem, less oten. Te Social Intranet is intuitive and amiliar. Users jump in witout a single training session, bringing Enterprise 2.0 closer.
Because it’s easy to deploy
Creating and deploying traditional knowledge management and collabora- tion tools can soak up serious time and resources. Te Social Intranet canbe as easy to create and deploy as any oter web page – i you’ve got aCMS platorm designed or te job.
