Webinar: 5 Common Portal Problems and Their Solutions

Join us for a one hour webinar on Tuesday, June 5th to learn how to maximize the value and return on portal deployment, and avoid the five most common (and problematic) problems, which can often mean the difference between a successful or failed intranet redevelopment project.

Failed projects are usually the result of improper assessment and planning or the assumption that any intranet technology platform will suffice. Problems stemming from a lack of assessment, planning and technology evaluation are the “usual suspects” that most frequently inhibit growth and success. Overlooking governance, ignoring your end-users or underestimating the complexity of portal redevelopment projects are just some of the problems we’ve seen prevent organizations from a flawless launch. Identifying these issues and knowing how to deal with them is essential to success.

This webinar is perfect for organizations currently considering an intranet redevelopment project that want to learn strategies for avoiding problems that tend to arise when surmounting projects of this size and complexity.

You will learn:

  • Insight from an intranet consulting firm that has helped hundreds of organizations avoid these five common portal problems, and others.

  • The consequences of improper assessment and planning or assuming that any intranet technology platform will suffice.

  • The importance of engaging end-users from the get-go.

  • Insight into portal technology, and the top players (e.g. Microsoft, Oracle, IBM, Liferay).

  • The importance of fresh, relevant content.

  • Why developing and adhering to an intranet governance model is important.

Who should attend:
This webinar has been specially crafted for intranet owners, managers, contributors & stakeholders in communications, HR, IT, marketing, operations, and the office of the president.
