Organizations build an intranet to facilitate communication, encourage collaboration, streamline processes and make important business decisions faster. Unfortunately, too many of these internal sites have failed to achieve their business objectives and now require fixing.

Social software-notably blogs, wikis and social bookmarking-offer powerful solutions for fixing a broken intranet. And open source content management solutions provide an ideal platform for supporting these applications, because they enable organizations to afford experimentation and reduce the innovation cycle. Commercial open source business intelligence solutions enable a gateway to bring structured data thru the intranet via reports, dashboards and analysis allowing faster and more effective decisions to be made.

In this 90 minute, information packed session, attendees see real world examples of organizations that have fixed their intranets and achieved breakthrough performance with social networking, enhanced collaboration and best business intelligence. They also gain an in-depth understanding of how commercial open source business intelligence, content management solutions and other productivity applications are ideally suited to maximize the implementation of these features cost effectively.
