Intranet by IT-Dev in the report by Nielsen Norman Group

The deployment by IT-Dev, specialising in designing and implementing high-quality intranets, based on Microsoft SharePoint technology, was included in the report published by Nielsen Norman Group (NN/g). “Best SharePoint Intranets 2012-2015” describes the best examples of intranet deployments using SharePoint.

The group of 21 deployment examples includes also description of the common intranet of TAURON Group, provided by IT-Dev.Nielsen Norman Group has studied intranet deployments worldwide since 1998. The Group analyses the usability, quality, impact for the communication improvement or customer business development, but also innovations introduced by the deployment companies.

In 2015, TAURON Group received a distinction in a competition organised by Nielsen Norman Group for the intranet provided by IT-Dev. The competition organised by NN/g identifies the best intranet projects worldwide. This is the most renowned study of corporate portal functionality and usability in the world. In 2015, for the first time ever, a Polish service joined the group of winners.

In late January and early February 2016, NN/g published the report describing global deployment examples in 2012-2015. 21 winning intranets, worth attention according to experts, were selected from over one hundred applications. The report includes for example case studies of sample intranets in MS SharePoint technology, design patterns, methods adopted to achieve the best intranet vision for every organisation, as well as screenshots to show how the portals operate.

“The report covers also intranet provided to Tauron Group by us, for over 16.5 thousand users”, says Tomasz Szałaj, Management Board President in IT-Dev. “This portal offers clear access to different information to the associates of companies in the Group. The intranet created by us is an electronic workplace, supporting document storage and sharing, flow of work and projects. It enables to perform joint ventures by various companies, to provide mutual services based on information flow and efficient exchange of knowledge.

The functional and graphic aspect of the deployment was supported by EDISONDA from Krakow whom IT-Dev has cooperated with since 2013. Before we started the project works, we wanted to learn the needs of employees in all TAURON Group companies. During 10 workshop sessions, we met over 70 people representing various departments and fields. Again, the studies turned out a highly important component of the user-oriented designing process which enables to prepare the system project more consciously, said Hubert Turaj, UX Director from EDISONDA.

The companies have already completed over a dozen similar projects. Close cooperation between EDISONDA designers and IT-Dev consultants is of utmost importance here. During the project for TAURON Group, IT-Dev was responsible for intranet deployment, taking care to insure the best adjustment of the system use patterns to the functionalities available at SharePoint platform.
