Security, ISO 27001 and keeping your organisation secure

I recently interviewed our operations manager Sam Loving about the importance of security in the workplace. We discussed how and why we take security so seriously here at Invotra and also how following security guidelines can benefit other companies.

On recent events at Westminster

Once again I’m angry and saddened by the events unfolding on the very doorstep of our democracy.

With customers, colleagues and friends nearby, my thoughts go out to all those affected by what has happened at Westminster, the details of which are continuing to unfold.

What a good intranet provider delivers

Today I was discussing what are the key things that a good Intranet provider (SaaS or old school) delivers for clients and here are the 5 key areas we believe are critical.

Engaged

Great providers will be completely engaged in all the areas they are needed in, they have a great understanding of not only the systems but the environment within with the client is working in.  They will spend time getting to deeply understand the organisation, its people and its challenges as well as its ambitions.

Get you a platform that can do both?

I’m a big fan of the guys at Intranetizen and read their blogs with glee. Not only are they wonderful, but they obviously appreciate my mixed metaphors and meme-based references…

New Year, same intranet? Pledge to make improvements to your site...

Are you looking at how to get more out of your social intranet? How do you encourage contributions to your online community?

One way we're doing this here at Invotra is by using our new Message Wall feature to submit our own pledges to improve the way we communicate. 

This is one of the many features we have as part of Invotra's social intranet product that was born out of a request from one of our customers and is fast-becoming one of *our* favourites!

The wrong trousers? Dressing for success at awards...

Dress smart. Defined as what? Wearing a suit? A shirt? or just looking nice in a polo jumper and jeans? This one question I found very difficult to answer when I was lucky enough to be on the receiving end of an invitation to the National Apprenticeships awards.

Having never been to a corporate event before I had no expectations or experience on what such an event would entail!

Our experience at Code for America


The suitcases are unpacked, our LinkedIn is spinning and it already feels like an age ago, however we recently returned from our first Code for America Summit in Oakland, California.

Code for America is a movement which brings together 'Government innovators, civic-minded technologists, and entrepreneurs', and we're thrilled to align ourselves with the community.

The summit was packed with innovative visionaries who truly believe in using technology in the right way, to enable the Government to better serve our society.

Meetups, and the power of the network

As you may know, I’m a big fan of social networks.

Online, in a professional and personal sense (although for me the lines are continuing to blur), from an Enterprise Social Network perspective, and offline - whether it’s a meetup, tweetup or conference!
