Successful portal, collaboration, and knowledge management solutions require an investment in a lot more than just technology. Organizational and political (process and people) strategies have a much greater impact and as a result, a comprehensive strategy is vital for success.

  • Share and leverage expertise – both inside the company and as part of an extended network of customers, suppliers and partners
  • Find and organize information assets with an effective information architecture design
  • Build awareness and gain adoption for your intranet, portal and collaboration solutions
  • Plan an effective governance strategy
  • Demonstrate measureable value from your investments in portal and collaboration technology
