In 2009 Omron talked about their intranet work project for Omron Europe – for over 2200 employees. The project included using Portal to bring together content and services from Cognos, WCM, Google, and Lotus Notes with some collaboration services (instant messaging and discussion forums), content and people search capabilities. They used Portal to deliver a highly personalized intranet with a completely different look and feel – it mattered a lot to them what the user experience and visual impacts were. The solution is called Ozone and its key components are: WCM, Portlet Factory, Personalization, Search, Custom SSO, and overall customization. Objectives – in 2009: Strengthen European Communication and Collaboration (Keen)through knowledge management: easy sharing of technical, application and business knowledge and experiences through improved collaboration throughout the whole organization Improve operational synergies and unlock efficiencies through European sharing of information, tools and processes (Lean) through operational efficiency in high-value business process areas with more streamlined access to the tools, information, self-service, and people they need to do their job Their partner is Portico Consultancy. This project won an award “ 2010 Intranet Innovation Award, Step two Designs (Gold award: Frontline Delivery)”
