Intranets are a mess, let’s face it. They’re most often a big dump of information that is more a legacy system than any other computer system within your organisation, that is if you have the traditional model of adding in new groups of pages then your model dates back to the early days of websites.
Nowadays things are changing, and our need for information access is changing. We’re overloaded with information, we’re getting information pushed to us, we’re deciding on the information we read and the presentation of that information, and we want it in a timely fashion.
None of that is addressed by the standard Intranet model.
