Slowly train and introduce your users in your new intranet. Work through roles and responsibilities until your whole organisation is onboard with the changes.
Introduce new applications or areas of your new intranet to your users one at a time to allow them to get accustomed to how it works and value the benefits it brings without overwhelming them with new features.
