Social working

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…

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!

Microsoft & LinkedIn

The news that Microsoft purchased LinkedIn shocked lots of people and it's an interesting move and one that is in my opinion a great one for Microsoft as long as they exert self controls. Microsoft have much to gain from this acquisition but the biggest threat to its success is themselves.

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.

Digital Engagement - Keeping the future workforce engaged. What will it take?

People born after 1997 have grown up with Social Media.  Information about their online preferences following them everywhere they go.  They can get information constantly displayed about things that they Googled once, two weeks ago. Can we say the same for interests and information in the workplace?

Diluting buzzwords of 2014/2015

A buzzword is a word or phrase that has become popular through regular / overuse, particularly on social media sites and blogs. Buzzwords can exist within different industries too. Whilst looking at social media and blogging in the area of intranets I have noticed a pattern of buzzwords that occur and have been regularised amongst the topic. So what are these buzzwords and why are they used here?

Invotra - The benefits of integrating a SaaS solution to solve your business problems

SaaS or Software as as Service is a method of providing applications via the internet. It removes the physical element to software and the time spent installing and updating it with patches. The owner of the SaaS application is responsible for access, security, performance and availability. With the majority of us now owning a smart device or tablet connected to the web, it means that we can now access the applications that we know and love more frequently.

Defining a Modern Intranet

A modern intranet is by no means a stretch of the imagination. In fact, it’s rather a lot less complex and thought provoking as you might first anticipate. Every modern style intranet definition will rightly include a social element...but how this social feature functions is the true test of its place on your intranet. By social, we want an intranet to encourage frequent collaboration with others on tasks, projects and documents etc.

The Importance of Great People in Tech and Software

So we choose a life at university with the notion of obtaining a degree in our chosen field of study and gain buckets of life changing experience’s throughout the journey. There are more first times during both our next and most significant chapter of our lives at university than ever before. These become character changing (not always building) and personally develop our thoughts and feelings towards work and ultimately, a career.
