In a talk titled ‘Intranet of Things – Innovation in the Workplace’. Paul will explore the future of the digital workspace.
Intranets have come a long way in the last 20 years. They’ve moved away from the basic HTML page that HR would have created to add policy links too. The intranet is now one of the biggest applications within an organisation.
Today they are used for collaboration, publishing and social networking. They can integrate with line of business systems and display content from other business applications, so that only one login is required.
They’re moving from being a publishing and collaboration platform to a business process and intelligence system. The data that they are capturing daily, the documents they hold and superior search and analytics mean they can be used for a multitude of business reasons.
The Intranet of Things is the next generation of the Intranet. The Intranet will become the place where data is captured from ‘things’ within the workspace. The data will be analysed and so accurate decisions about improving productivity, efficiencies or our environment can be made.
The Intranet of Things is the future of the digital workplace. Paul talk about what it means for users and how organisations will benefit from bringing it from concept to life.
