Rethinking an Intranet in a cloud and digital workplace era

Time: 11.15 - 12.00, Wednesday November 4

Speaker: Ernst Décsey (Switzerland), UNICEF
Track: Intranet & Digital Workplace


Intranet redesign is a recurrent topic that every organization is facing In the past, rethinking an Intranet was often purely an internal project focused on a single platform. Today, cloud solutions and the notion of a digital workplace redefine Intranet redesign exercises. Systems integration becomes a key objective while other aspects such as work practices, mindset and new processes need to be taken into account.

UNICEF’s Private Fundraising and Partnerships (PFP) division in Geneva recently embarked into a complete rethink of its Intranet using a combination of SharePoint online and Yammer. Join Ernst Décsey, digital workplace practitioner at UNICEF PFP, to hear about their journey towards an Intranet lead digital workplace and participate in a discussion moderated by JBoye on the evolving role of Intranet managers.

In this session you will learn about:
- The journey undertaken by the PFP Intranet to set the basics right before its redevelopment in the cloud
- Lessons learned by PFP during its redevelopment project
- The challenges faced by Intranet managers to address some of the dimensions of the digital workplace
