Invotra: Leading the Digital Workspace Evolution

The change from intranets to social intranets took a relatively long time.  When you consider that intranets had been around, in their most raw form, since the early 1990’s it took until 2010 for the social networking craze to impact on business.  Yes, there had been some minor tinkering with proprietary systems allowing people to communicate before 2010, but it was then that businesses started to take the concept seriously.

The SaaS Digital Workspace - Commercially Transparent

When we were putting together our offering we wanted the commercials to reflect the product.  

Invotra is built on open source (Drupal, Piwik, Solr, Node.js).  The open source community relies on it’s members to provide support and guidance to each other.  Code is created and then submitted back into the community for anyone to use, for free.  It’s a fair community where contribution is encouraged and collaboration is key.  Everything is open and transparent.

Workplace Leadership

Are you completely comfortably with calling yourself a leader?

I've asked that question many times before and most of the time the majority of people say that they aren't.  I believe we have made leadership into something bigger than us, we have made it into something beyond us, we have made it about changing the world.  

We’ve taken this title of leader and we treat it as something that one day we are going to deserve, but to give it to ourselves now would require a level of cockiness or arrogance that we're not comfortable with.

UXD what is it and why it matters



A brief history

UXD or more specifically User Experience Design is a subject that is much talked about today. What was once an approach championed by a small minority, has now come to dominate the mainstream in product development and application design.

A few tech giants were quick to adopt and implement these methodologies. Apple and Google offer user experiences with their technology, that so many today try to emulate or surpass.
