    A Company’s Intranet is like a Brain –Integration Matters
  • With XCC Internal Communications is made social, i.e. its content can be liked and commented (unless commenting is disabled)
    Content publishing, liking and commenting is integrated into the Activity Stream and will be noticed by peers
  • IBM Connections is made for end users without training, i.e. it is very easy to use and thus “management compatible”
    Business and Service Units can even have their own interpretation of the corporate style guide.
  • Very easy, very fast, very flexible to use
  • Improved Onboarding Experience with step by step guide, e.g.:
    Welcome
    Introduction -> Message from the chairmen
    Video -> Motivation & training
    Social Media Guidelines / Terms of Use Acceptance
    My Picture -> Upload your picture
    My Profile -> Edit your profile
    My Suggestions -> Build your network, follow people and communities
    My Preferences -> Set your Intranet preferences
    Intranet Home -> Proceed to the Intranet homepage
  • Create a landing page for External / Guest Users
    Welcome Message
    Instructions
    Help Desk
    Community Access
    etc.
  • Create a complete and deeply integrated Intranet with Communication, Collaboration and Custom Apps without any investment in software licenses or technology
    XCC for IBM Connections Cloud is available on Premises, on IaaS/PaaS Offering now and will be available as SaaS Offering soon

    IBM Connections Cloud + XCC Cloud = Intranet as a Service
  • XCC can be installed within 60 minutes, and can be tested and customized without any interference of the production environment. Even complete Intranet re-launches can be prepared in “Stealth Mode”
    With XCC Intranet projects shift focus within hours from technology to content. Intranet projects are tremendously accelerated.
  • Extending Communication with Collaboration
  • Knowledge Workers embrace Enterprise Social Collaboration and Networking platforms like IBM Connections. The problem is, that Knowledge Workers are only a small minority in most companies. Many employees will not partici- pate in an Enterprise Social Collaboration platform, either because they are occasional users or because they are intro- verted. Separate platforms for communication and collaboration however cause content overlap and inconsistency, attention fragmentation and governance problems. With more than one Intranet platform it is practically impossible to create a ‘Single Point of Truth’.
    XCC adds structure to IBM Connections and makes it thus easily consumable for new, occasional and unexperienced employees. With this IBM Connections extension it is easy to create and enable use cases for all types of users, e.g. internal communications, blue collar workers, common staff, community managers, department managers, senior managers, customers and partners. It lowers participation barriers and activates the employee base. In short: XCC helps you to get the most out of IBM Connections.

  • While Collaboration has clearly The elements of and Intranet Communication, Collaboration and Applications, have remained, their importance however With the emergence of user generated content, Wikipedia, Internet 2.0, collaboration platforms like QuickR (2003) and ESN platforms like IBM Connections (2006) it Communication, Collaboration and Applications Collaboration, the value creation

    Collaboration has clearly gained the highest importance from all three Intranet disciplines

    With the emergence of Enterprise Social Software the gravity of the Intranet clearly moved from Communication to Collaboration, Social Business and Enterprise 2.0, as this is where the value for the company is being generated.

    50. 50. 50 Integrate Communications Use Cases 1 - 10
    51. 51. Internal Communications can use a special community to create and manage their content and publish it on XCC based Intranet home and landing pages. XCC pages can be set up and customized easily, using a set of grid templates and choosing from almost 60 widgets. Internal Communications can set up and maintain a navigation between the XCC pages, providing employees with an intuitive user experience for surfing the organization. Design a Personalized Intranet, Create and Publish Content Internal Communi- cations 1
    52. 52. With XCC, Internal Communications can turn the typical one way communication into a real dialog with the employees. Here are some examples: Enable employees to like and comment on all available information. Bring specific forum discussions and / or ideas to the employees’ attention with prominently placed widgets on the Intranet homepage. Listen to and Respond to Employees Engage Employees 2
    53. 53. Observe and analyze the employee base sentiment through comments and questionnaires. Engage employees with a picture competition, for example ask employees to upload their pictures with the new company logo and let all employees vote on the best pictures. With XCC Communication and Collaboration are either on the same page or available with just one click. Listen to and Respond to Employees Engage Employees 2 See video: http://youtu.be/Fg-eh1zHg6Q
    54. 54. XCC is built with the latest Internet technology such as Bootstrap, Fontawesome, IndexDB, JQueryUI and RequireJS. With standard CSS knowledge it is possible to adopt the design of the XCC pages to match corporate identity and design guidelines. Business divisions can have their individual CI. Branding, Corporate Identity & User Interface Branding & Design 3 See presentation: http://slideshare.net/timetoact/xcc-layoutoptions
    55. 55. XCC makes it much easier for divisions, branches, departments and locations to create and maintain their own landing page on the Intranet than any traditional Web Content Management System. Almost all Web Content Management Systems are built and optimized for the Internet and are far too complicated for occasional Intranet users. IBM Connections is much simpler to use. Any employee can create a blog post or edit a wiki page without any special training. Create and Maintain Landing Pages Business Unit Communi- cation 4 Intranet Homepage (personalized & targeted)SU1 BU1 BU2 SU2 SU1 SU 2 SU 3 SU 4 BU1 BU 2 BU 3 BU 4 Portal or Web CMS based Intranet Homepage
    56. 56. With traditional web CMS, Internal Communications is mostly unable to effectively delegate the maintenance of the long tail of the departmental web pages. With XCC on the other hand, Internal Communications are able to set up a departmental page, include it in a divisional or in the global navigation and assign maintenance very effectively to managers or assistants of that respective business unit. Create and Maintain Landing Pages Business Unit Communi- cation 4
    57. 57. With XCC, top managers have a choice: Either they allow Internal Communications to rephrase and publish content on their behalf or they create and publish content directly and just ask Internal Communication to direct attention to their post with a prominent placing on the Intranet home page. This way, top managers can engage in a more personal way with the employees and still get the attention they deserve. Communicate Authentically and Effective Manage- ment Communi- cation 5
    58. 58. With XCC, it is easy to set up a special page allowing a company’s chairman to interact with the employee base: Introduce the chairman with his bio and an interview. Publish the chairman’s latest ideas, priorities and thoughts prominently. Allow employees to discuss issues, provide ideas and have the chairman’s office help the chairman with the workload. Engage with Employee Base Chairman‘s Office 6
    59. 59. With XCC, Internal Communications can create an online representation of a printed employee magazine – either as the printed magazine appearing periodically or in continued delivery form. The online representation of course adds value to the printed magazine, as it provides a feedback channel for employees. Online Edition of a Print Magazine Employee Magazine 7
    60. 60. With XCC, Employee Relations managers are able to document and maintain guidelines and rules and make them easily accessible to employees as part of the Intranet. Guidelines specific to a business unit or location can be published on the respective landing page only. Via the employees’ comments the guidelines and rules can be constantly improved and honed. Document Guidelines and Rules Employee Relations 8
    61. 61. XCC admins are able to target users with content specific to their interests, according to their inherited LDAP attributes like Business Unit, Country, Location or Management Level Users can personalize their experience by setting their individual preferences. Personalization and Targeting both work on an XCC page and on a widget level. Personalization & Targeting Personali- zation & Targeting 9 See presentation: http://slideshare.net/timetoact/xcc-personalization
    62. 62. Using separate platforms for Internal Communications and Collaboration confronts authors and users with difficult choices: Where are they supposed to publish and where should they search for content? Some managers will choose to communicate through the Web CMS based Intranet website, while others will choose to communicate through the collaboration platform. Content overlap, redundancy, inconsistency and governance problems are the inevitable consequence of multiple platforms on the Intranet. With more than one platform, it is practically impossible to create a Single Point of Truth. Information Architecture Create a Single Point of Truth 10
    63. 63. 63 Enhance Collaboration Use Cases 11 - 14
    64. 64. XCC provides many ways to consume, contribute to and maintain the Intranet. The structure is most important for new employees, occasional users and silver surfers. The threshold to contribution with liking and commenting is very low. Liking, comments and content creation all appear in the activity stream and thus secure a high awareness. The content creation and maintenance is much easier than with traditional Web Content Management Systems. Delegation to line of business is very effective. When each business unit has one person in charge of maintaining its landing page as part of the Intranet, then each business unit automatically has one IBM Connections power user. Increase Intranet Usage & Adoption Usage & Adoption 11
    65. 65. With XCC Intranet usage typically increases by 100 percent and more. Increase Intranet Usage & Adoption Usage & Adoption 11 Consumer Contributor Moderator Internal Communications Knowledge Worker
    66. 66. Not only can Internal Communications create and publish content with XCC (as with any other Web Content Management System), they can also curate content. In other words: Internal Communications can select an employee's blog post and publish it prominently on the Intranet home page or on the landing page of a business unit or location, and thus recognize and reward the employee’s contribution. Curate Content Curate Content 12 See video: http://youtu.be/RbqZ6Ukq93c
    67. 67. XCC enables community managers to easily create, customize and maintain landing pages for their community. They can choose a predefined layout from a variety of templates and arrange the most important content according to their preferences. They can also include content from sub communities or other relevant communities at will. Design and Maintain Community Landing Pages Community Managers 13
    68. 68. Files and links in widgets can be individually selected and sorted. Introductory information and important posts can be published in a fixed position. Introduce the community team by their role, using the People Selector widget. Display all events from the main and the sub communities with the Event Calendar widget. Interactive elements help driving user engagement. Community landing pages can either stick to the community navigation or cover the whole width and replace the original community navigation. Design and Maintain Community Landing Pages Community Managers 13 See video: http://youtu.be/fPksMAuJ2SE
    69. 69. XCC makes it easy to create an onboarding wizard that acquaints new IBM Connections users with a step by step guided tour. Let the employees know why the company invests in a Social Intranet, what is in it for them and how they can use it. The acceptance of the Intranet guidelines and the enrollment progress can be documented. Onboard New Employees with a Wizard New User Onboarding 14 See video: http://youtu.be/Kc7qqVzQG9U
    70. 70. 70 Integrate Applications Use Cases 15 - 19
    71. 71. XCC provides the iFrame, the HTML and the Clipping widget. The iFrame widget supports either retrieval through the user or through the server. The HTML widget has an integrated CSS, HTML, JSON and JavaScript editor, which supports direct code editing without copying the code to and from an external application. The HTML widget is able to post and process REST calls from other applications and display the results in a custom format. Via the integrated JavaScript Event Handler Framework, widgets can communicate with each other (e.g. a CRM widget “talking” to a ERP widget). Integrate Legacy Apps Custom Applications 15
    72. 72. The Clipping widget supports users without developer skills in integrating parts of other websites into their own XCC page. The Clipping widget can either use crop marks or CSS marks to select relevant content. Integrate Legacy Apps Custom Applications 15 See video: http://youtu.be/GMvT-fUBg1g
    73. 73. Application Developers are able to create their custom widgets and make it very easy for their authors to integrate content or functionalities from other applications. We have plans to build widgets that allow selection and display content from any Notes database. Application developers can share and exchange their custom widgets with other customers. Custom Widgets with XCC API Build Custom Widgets 16 See presentation: http://slideshare.net/timetoact/xcc-api
    74. 74. Keep most frequented and relevant tools readily available in a fly-out page throughout XCC and IBM Connections. The fly-out page can contain any widget. Examples are: people search emergency help time tracking application weather forecast company stock Links Intranet preferences Tools Menu Always Available Tools Menu 17
    75. 75. Forms Experience Builder (FEB) Widgets Forms, Lists & Workflows 18 The IBM Forms Experience Builder (FEB) enables line of business users to create web forms applications for stand-alone use or for customer and employee websites. Non-technical users are able to create sophisticated web applications complete with forms, database, reports, security, notifications and more. FEB is a rapid application development platform and as such an browser based alternative to Domino applications. TIMETOACT developed two FEB widgets as an extension to XCC that allow embedding FEB Forms and display and edit FEB Data. See FEB video: https://youtu.be/9TbqkRROars
    76. 76. Forms Experience Builder (FEB) Widgets Forms, Lists & Workflows 18 FEB – Form Widget Embed FEB Forms Select Form (from all Forms the user has access to) Select Height Select Privacy Anonymous (e.g for Complaints / Whistleblower Forms) Authenticated (will pass users profile data to forms) View & Use Forms View & Submit Form View Resultpage ("Thank You"Page, Forms Responses, New Form)
    77. 77. Forms Experience Builder (FEB) Widgets Forms, Lists & Workflows 18 FEB Data Widget Select Layout (Grid, List, Table) Map Data Fields to Layout Fields Define Actions (Create, Edit, Delete) Format Layout and Fields with Custom CSS
    78. 78. Forms Experience Builder (FEB) Widgets Forms, Lists & Workflows 18 The capability to edit & delete data records with the FEB Data Widget is a real breakthrough that allows a complete new set of applications. IBM Connections with XCC and FEB make a beautifully integrated Digital Workplace.
    79. 79. Create a Branded and Simplified Experience Extranet for Customers & Partners 19 With XCC, it is possible to create and customize a landing page for external users. The landing page could provide introductory information and reduce or limit complexity to the required functionality. Of course, the resulting Extranet can be branded in the corporate design. Create and maintain content once, use it in the Intranet and Extranet.
    80. 80. 80 SimplifyIT Use Cases 20 - 24
    81. 81. The entire Intranet is accessible with the IBM Connections Android and iOS apps. XCC uses the latest Bootstrap templates and is responsive too. No project required. Participate on the Intranet from Mobile Devices Mobile Users 20 See video: youtu.be/jv4CrO4DQHE
    82. 82. Provide a read only access to selected Intranet content, of course with your company’s distinctive corporate design. Anonymous access is restricted to reading only (no comments, no likes etc.) to XCC pages that have been explicitly been by Web Masters marked as “Available to Anonymous Access” to IBM Connections Content from public and moderated communities. Content from restricted communities will never be exposed to anonymous access. And the website is fully responsive too. Information Access Anonymous Users 21
    83. 83. XCC is available for both IBM Connections on premises and as a service for IBM Connections Cloud. On premises or cloud: initial setup can be achieved in less than an hour. On-Premises and Cloud Intranet as a Service 22 See presentation: slideshare.net/timetoact/xcc-cloud
    84. 84. Eliminate Web CMS costs for Selection Purchase Implementation Integration Access Management (Read / Write) Activity Stream Integration Search Integration Single Sign On UI Integration Mobile Access Training Running another platform besides IBM Connections. Reduce Costs Chief Financial Officers 23
    85. 85. XCC dramatically reduces Intranet complexity, as it eliminates the need for an extra Web Content Management or Application Integration platform and meets all requirements for platform integration. User interface integration Activity stream integration @Mention Integration full text search integration single sign on and much more are given, no projects required. Update Intranet layout, templates and landing pages in a test bed without having to set up a separate test environment. Reduce Complexity – Accelerate Development & Deployment IT Managers 24

    128. 128. 128 Intranet Strategies for Communication & Collaboration 1. Focus on Communication 2. Focus on Collaboration 3. Side-By-Side Communication and Collaboration 4. Enhancing Communication with Collaboration 5. Integrate Communication into Collaboration We Evaluated 5 Intranet Strategies Beware of Challenges & Pitfalls
    129. 129. 129129 Inefficient collaboration with mail and file servers All knowledge locked up in mail- and file-servers No expert identification No employee participation No informal learning Not appealing to young employees accustomed to social media Focus on Communication Internal Communi- cations 129
    130. 130. 130130 Using an Internet CMS for Intranet Web Content Management Systems are made for the Internet. That’s where the money is. Typical focus: Pixel Perfect Layout, Asset Management, Approval Workflows… Multisite Management, Commerce Support / Conversion Optimization (Analytics, Campaign & Lead Management, Targeting) These features are mostly irrelevant in the Intranet and just increase cost and complexity. 130 The Sad Story of the Intranet A modern tragedy experienced by companies around the world
    131. 131. 131131 Using an Internet CMS for Intranet Web Content Management Systems are too complicated for occasional users from LOB Poor LOB Adoption Outdated Content Web CMS market size for Intranet shrinks, grows rapidly for the Internet. In 3-5 Web CMS Intranet will be a separate market or vanish. 131 The Sad Story of the Intranet A modern tragedy experienced by companies around the world
    132. 132. 132 2. Focus on Collaboration Intranet Strategies
    133. 133. 133133 Difficult to communicate the organization’s priorities, strategy, values. Difficulty to distinguish opinions and ideas from binding / formal information and directives. Difficulty to identify important information. No structure, everything sorted by last update / popularity. Focus on Collaboration Peer-To-Peer Collaboration 133
    134. 134. 134134 Knowledge Workers are only a small minority in most companies Introverted People are not comfortable exposing themselves Without a broad lobby Social Intranet projects are often delayed Social Intranet can not be sustained by Knowledge Workers alone Focus on Collaboration 134
    135. 135. 135 3. Side-By-Side Communication and Collaboration Intranet Strategies
    136. 136. 136 How should managers communicate, as themselves (“Mike the Manager”) or through Internal Communications (“the Manager Mike”)? Where should employees look for content? On the Web CMS based Intranet or in IBM Connections? Side-By-Side Communication and Collaboration
    137. 137. 137137 Content Fragmentation Some managers choose to communicate as themselves using the collaboration platform (“Mike the Manager”) Some managers choose to communicate thru internal communications using the Web CMS (”The Manager Mike”) Side-By-Side Communication and Collaboration Attention Fragmentation Some users refrain from the internal communications / web CMS based Intranet (“I do not need propaganda”) Some users refrain from the collaborative platform (“If it is important it will be published by Internal Communications”) 137
    138. 138. 138138 User Challenges Employees have to search the Web CMS based Intranet and the Collaborative / Enterprise Social Software platform Employees need to distinguish between Official / Unofficial Content Content from Business Unit run by “Mike the Manager” and Content from Business Unit run by “The Manager Mike” Side-By-Side Communication and Collaboration Content Overlap, Redundancy and Inconsistency Ideas are developed in collaborative platform, need to be republished on communication platform Some content is inevitably going to be stored in different versions in both platforms 138
    139. 139. 139139 Government Challenges Internal Communications defines “their” Web CMS based as the mandatory default homepage Content Policy: All binding and relevant content from ESS in Web CMS Side-By-Side Communication and Collaboration 139
    140. 140. 140 With more than one platform there CAN NOT be a Single Point of Truth Side-By-Side Communication and Collaboration
    141. 141. 141 4. Enhancing Communication with Collaboration Intranet Strategies
    142. 142. 142142 For enhanced Web CMS: Insufficient capabilities Activity Stream / Social capabilities / Enterprise collaboration missing. For integrated platforms: Inconsistent UI Users must leave communication homepage for collaboration. Content fragmentation, overlap, redundancy and inconsistency, governance problems. Enhancing Communication with Collaboration Insufficient collaboration Collaboration integrated into communication will never reach critical mass to become self sustaining. Intranet 2.0 based on user generated content / Enterprise 2.0 will not be achieved. 142
    143. 143. 143 5. Integrate Communication into Collaboration Intranet Strategies
    144. 144. 144144 No content overlap, redundancy, inconsistency Social software is more popular with employees User generated content grows much faster than centrally managed content Integrate Communication into Collaboration 144
