Toby Ward,  Prescient Digital Media, ist eine fantastische sprudelnde Quelle, wenn es um Intranet und insbesondere um Social Intranet geht.

Prescient Digital Media is a group of senior Internet and Intranet consultants that provide strategic Internet and intranet consulting, planning and communications services to organizations of all sizes.

Im Artikel „Social intranets become mainstream“ geht Toby Ward auf die zunehmende Verbreitung der Social Intranets ein („Social intranets become mainstream„):

Many organizations have social media tools (87% of organizations of all sizes have at least one social media tool on their intranet, according to the Intranet 2.0 Global Study), but often they are held separate and isolated from other parts of the intranet, or receive a nominal link from the home page. But more and more organizations are extending their intranet 2.0 tools, and opening use and participation to all employees.

Nachtrag (15.07.2010): In „The intranet is dead. Long live the intranet“ beschreibt David Reinhardt, wie sich die Anforderungen an ein Intranet gewandelt haben:

The intranet of old was a place where corporates shared content with their staff. Today’s intranet also needs to be a place where employees engage each other. The intranet remains, the design imperative has changed.
