What do I keep in mind when I look for an intranet/digital workspace solution? How can Saketa Intranet Suite help?

An intranet is an important investment for organizations. There are some important things to keep in mind when looking for the perfect intranet solution. Here are a few mistakes to avoid while adapting an intranet:

  1. Make sure to set measurable goals before starting on your intranet journey. This will allow you measure progress on a timely basis, and reduce scope creep to a large extent.
  2. Ensure your solution is easy to use and discovery of new information is relatively simple. Complicated navigation and ineffective search feature
  3. Keep in mind the requirements of the end user (your employees) when designing the intranet. Success or failure relies heavily on their adoption of your intranet, so it is very important to keep in mind how they use the intranet.

How is a digital Workspace different from intranet?

An intranet was designed keeping in mind the workforce of the 90’s, where the primary concern was the availability and accessibility of information. A digital workplace is developed keeping in mind the requirements of the agile, modern workforce, and focuses on structuring the content in a way that allows the employee to easily discover information. Office 365 today comprises multiple tools that focus on collaboration and productivity. The digital workplace complements these tools and allows users to discover information most relevant to them at a time most convenient to them.

How can we adapt a digital workspace on Office 365?

Office 365 provides you with all the tools required to improve collaboration and boost productivity across the organization. Be it Delve that you can use to create your profile or Yammer that you can use as your professional social network or One Drive for Business or Planner, Office 365 provides you with all the resources necessary to boost collaboration among members of the modern workforce. However, it does get tedious to switch between so many apps. SharePoint is a great place to pull in all your apps, and can become the foundation of a robust Office 365 digital workplace.


What is a Digital Workplace?

Digital workplace is the term used to describe the virtual equivalent of a physical workplace. Technology is drastically changing the world today and most organizations are transitioning from a traditional model where everyone is collocated at one place, to a model where employees work remotely in a non-collocated virtual world. This makes collaboration slightly trickier and lays the onus on the organization to break down communication silos and make the employees connecting from different parts of the world feel like they belong there.
