I’ve just read an interesting blog post by Oxford City Council, sharing their experience of building a new intranet CMS using GovIntranet, and highlighting the importance of content on an intranet.
I’ve been working with Nesta to put a new intranet in place. It’s been a smooth project, delivered on time and ticking all the requirements boxes.
But I’ve written enough blog posts showing how organisations are saving money by deploying GovIntranet. This time, I thought I’d share some of the aspects that we at Agento have learned running a project as a small business.
Since releasing the new intranet for the Royal Botanic Gardens, the team has been working to iterate functionality and implement features based on staff feedback and new requirements.
The Forestry Commission and associated organisations used a bespoke content management system for their intranet and it was due to drop out of support early in 2019. The search for a new intranet platform was on, and I first heard from the Forestry project team towards the end of 2016 when they were exploring options.
Referendum results, resignations and reshuffles have been causing government intranets to adapt and move quickly to keep staff up to date with changes.
