What are intranets?
The term intranet is based on ‘intra’ meaning internal and ‘net’ meaning network. Therefore, intranets are internal networks. They act as an internal communications medium within an organisation. With intranets, companies create a smaller, internal version of the internet that are designed to simply and conveniently facilitate the sharing of different types of company information. Intranets have a similar structure to the broader internet. However, they differ in that they are smaller networks and less public, being accessible only to the members of an organisation.
Why build corporate intranets?
Uploading company information and resources to intranets provides staff with easy access to shared knowledge and information. Corporate intranets increase productivity within the company as information and knowledge are made more available. Time wasted organising and sorting files is reduced, while collective knowledge within the company is improved. Intranets also simplify the task of updating data and documents.
Intranets are usually accessible anytime from anywhere that the internet is available. To access an intranet from outside company premises, users simply require a URL and log-in details, such as a username and password. This enables staff to access information via the intranet at their convenience. As the use of intranets encourages information exchange, employees become more informed, empowering them with the ability to make better, faster decisions.
What types of corporate intranets exist?
Intranets are generally customised to meet the individual needs of a business. There are many different types and purposes of intranets, and as such, intranets vary greatly. The below provides a brief explanation of some of these broad intranet categories.
