Intranet Global Forum 2013

The Need

The corporate intranet, long neglected and underfunded, has bounded forward several evolutionary leaps in the past two years. In particular, social media, and SharePoint are dominating most intranet agendas, or considerations for the future. Many organizations, however, still suffer from sub-par intranets with poor funding, governance, and continual problems regarding content, search, and information architecture.

The Intranet Global Forum 2013 provides intranet executives and managers in communications, IT and HR with all the tools they need to understand the recent changes, and the fundamental skills for designing, deploying and governing a new era intranet.


The Intranet Global Forum 2013 is ideal for executives and managers that are involved in a new intranet launch, redesign, or technology shift, and for those that manage technical, business and content components of a corporate intranet or portal.
