    • Page 30• Old: didn’t do a great job of connecting you to the resources you use most often to do you job• Old: only 4 persistent links in the w3 masthead (w3 Home, BluePages, Help Central and Feedback) and no page Footer• New: new masthead will include over 100 links to w3 sites and applications employees use most. The “rich footer” will include 30 or more!• Over time, new features like your ODW Essential Links, Alerts & Notifications, and collaboration features will be added 30
    • Page 31• Employees continually ask us to better integrate the intranet sites and applications we deploy on w3• Lotus Connections is quickly becoming our premier collaboration and productivity platform so we wanted to integrate and promote it on the w3 home page• The new w3 home page will help you stay connected with your colleagues, find experts, join communities, upload and manage files all within a single widget!• You can use the Connect and Share portlet to do this and more...and you can start today! Click on the My w3 tab today on the w3 home page to get started. 31
    • Page 32• Faces integration within search is the first step towards a search experience that is not only more useful but one that will delight• As you type, people results are shown instantly and are click-able, taking you to the associated Lotus Connections profile record• If you are doing a more general search, you can choose from several collections including a search of Lotus Connections all from within new masthead! 32
    • Page 33• The w3 portal, also known as the OnDemand Workplace (ODW) has been the corner of the intranet you can make your own. However, customization hasnt always been easy or intuitive.• The new design makes it incredibly easy for you to add and remove widgets from the page, to change the layout of the page, and even allows you to easily add and remove your own pages customizing each for the way YOU work.• Dont like where weve placed a widget? Drag that widget to a different part of the page or remove it all together replacing it with something that will make you better informed or more productive! 33

    • Why decreases in key success measures? 1. Performance, Reliability, Stability 2. Diverse IT Platforms make consistency extremely difficult 3. Many strategic tools in “steady state” 4. Lack of integration between solutions 5. Lack of agility / rapid iteration across the portfolio 6. w3 home page: stagnation, unable to deploy new home page 37
    • Challenges to v17 Adoption• Many strategic tools in “steady state”• Redesign falling “below the line” during Fall Plan• No real penalty for non-compliance• Plethora of 3rd party solutions within the intranet• It is often difficult to even identify the owners of a site/ application 38
    • What are we doing about it?• “Digital Backbone” Initiative – reduce/eliminate exceptions, tax, delay deployments (stick)• Tools not rules (automating migration/compliance)• Focusing on “big rocks” (SAP deployments)• Migrating to HTM5 & CSS3 providing “automatic” mobile support and responsive designs with appropriate device “break-points” (carrot)• Create a lighter-weight w3 home page in our Events Infrastructure to provide 100% availability and high performance 39
    • Unisys 40
    • Unisys• Unisys is a worldwide information technology company with a rich history than spans 139 years• 22,500 employees 41 41

    • In 18 months more than 91% of targeted employee user group (apprx.16,000) activated and populated their My Site Profiles More than 78% of the 22,000+ Unisys Global Employee population enabled My Site social tools. Senior Leadership: 100% have active My Sites and use and promote social collaboration within their organizations © 2011 Unisys Corporation.

    • Key Lessons You can’t get there unless you know where you’re going  Create an end-state Vision  Develop a Strategic Plan and an Implementation Road Map to get there  Utilize metrics to measure progress and to identify potential barriers Focus On Culture - “People drive success”, Technology is just an enabler  Create a Leadership-down model and engage Key Organization Stakeholders early on as Champions to “lead by example” and to be “visible” agents of change.  Create a Culture Transformation strategy that influences employee behaviour patterns and help them understand how social collaboration can add value in their daily work. Keep Tools and Processes “simple to use...and intuitive”  Utilize Technology “out-of-the-box” -- avoid customizations that add complexity. Provide education and self-enabled “click and learn” training.  Encourage all employees to develop a profile and to build a network of colleagues. Networking is most effective when all employees are positioned to properly engage and participate. © 2011 Unisys Corporation. All rights reserved. 44 44
