  9. 9. 1. Breakthrough of mobile 43 % of Finnish intranets are accessible with mobile devices  This will revolutionize the use of intranets for employees not working at a desk.  How do we utilize this opportunity?!? Intranets 10 in Finland study 2014 | North Patrol 44 % of the respondents say that developing better mobile connections to the intranet is one of the most important issues to deal with in the near future.

  14. 14. 6. Emphasis on transparency The principle of transparency and openness is growing in importance:  Many organizations have made all of their collaboration workspaces or team sites available for every employee to follow.  Transparency and openness means giving all users the same access rights to content and the same publishing rights to discussions, commenting, and blogging. Currently: in many cases only employees & management are present on intranets • Employees  personal profiles and photos, blogs, Q&A, comments, interviews, guidelines • Management  blogs, comments (with their photos from the personal profile), interviews Now growing in importance: • Making the current situation of the organisation visible  key business indicators, reports • Making the knowledge of the organisation visible  idea generation, professional blogs, Q&A • Making the customers, markets and other stakeholders visible  customer feedback, business reports, market analysis Intranets 15 in Finland study 2014 | North Patrol
  15. 15. Recommendations for intranet buyers by North Patrol 1. There are many concepts for intranet, for different purposes and organisational cultures.  You cannot copy an intranet (or fancy features from a study!). 2. First decide the concept.  Then choose the technology. 3. Highly personalized front page is dead.  Instead spend your time thinking usable team sites/spaces or startingpoints for few selected roles, e.g. for sales, supervisors. 4. Mobile access will revolutionase intranets and internal communications. But is the IT ready for that level of openness (security issues)?  Talk to you IT! 5. Nobody wants to own collaboration or the information inside the organisation. Maybe communications just needs to grab it and make it work!? Intranets 16 in Finland study 2014 | North Patrol
