Build a Social Intranet
Turn Your Intranet into an Enterprise Collaboration Platform
Corporate intranets are the primary way most enterprises provide internal information to employees - but they are often seen as a burden to IT and end-users alike. By allowing users to find and connect with other employees, discuss projects in team workspaces, and easily view updates to resources and connections in activity streams, an intranet can become much more relevant and useful. eXo Platform 3.5 enables the next generation of Social Intranets: modular services for document and web content management, enterprise social networks, forums, email, chat, calendar and more, all offered within the trusted security of an enterprise portal.
Easily Integrate with Enterprise Applications
Because eXo Platform is services-based, it can be integrated with existing resources. With support for gadgets and portlets, intranets built with eXo technology are capable of reusing existing services to simplify development.
Build Powerful Gadget-Based Dashboards
Third-party application data of interest to certain employees or groups can be provided in a customized dashboard within the intranet. Developers can create gadgets to display and even mashup multiple data sources to provide the most relevant information to users, helping the intranet improve employee productivity.
Faster, More Efficient Development
Integrating the company LDAP or Microsoft Active directory only has to be performed once, and then user permissions are easy to use to set up many additional application services. Address books and mailing lists, collaboration group spaces, enterprise social network profiles and connections, and many other features are automatically populated with LDAP or Microsoft Active Directory information. Developers only have to configure once, then adding new functionality to the intranet is easy.
