Adelphi Digital

Revolutionising a government intranet

Presentation from Intranets2017

About my talk

The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions (CDPP) intranet (e-Hub) has been developed in Drupal as a fully functional digital platform to be the single source of information for all personnel within CDPP. The new e-Hub was designed to not only be more visually appealing but also improve accessibility and usability across all devices to inspire all CDPP staff to communicate on the platform. The main aim of this project was to revolutionise the way CDPP communicates with internal stakeholders.

This meant:

  • Developing real time communication by enabling a focus on local relevant, flexible communication within your workgroup
  • Enabling staff to connect with their relevant resources needed to complete their work
  • Implementing integration with active directory and other internal systems to ensure that information and content was relevant to the user
  • Create a common understanding of what is happening within the business by using a clear taxonomy and hierarchy of tagged content/li>
  • Making publishing simple and easy to manage
