What the judges would love to see in this year’s Intranet Innovation Awards


The Intranet Innovation Awards are now open for entries, with a closing date of May 31. For the judges of the Awards, this is like the week before Christmas, waiting to see what presents will be under the tree.

To further build the sense of anticipation, we’ve asked the judging panel what entries they’d love to see. This is what they said:

  • solutions that use uniquely mobile approaches to improve the way business gets done
  • SharePoint used to transform business processes
  • intranet redesigns that have a big business impact
  • use of geolocation in enterprise mobility
  • prediction markets used to solve business problems
  • big data brought to life
  • social tools genuinely embedded in processes with measurable impact
  • anything which blurs the line between the intranet and the outside world
  • notification systems for enhanced information filtering brought to reality
  • homepages that are THE place where employees start their day (as opposed to opening up their email client)
  • targeted social channels to solve specific business problems
  • innovative ways organizations are supporting tele workers
  • internal crowd sourcing activities: the goals, the results
  • multilingual intranets that ensure that all users have access to all information, no matter what languages they understand
  • brilliantly simple solutions which makes us go “why didn’t I think of that!”

So: what are you planning to enter? An idea from this list, or something completely different?

See how to enter, and feel free to surprise us :-)
