Most businesses today rely on traditional intranets as vehicles for
company-wide communication and team collaboration. Traditional
intranets, however, are mostly stale, static and siloed. They are built
on older-generation technologies designed for managing content, rather
than engaging people.
"Enterprise intranets with static, outdated information fall short of
the needs and expectations of today's sophisticated workforce," said
Esteban Kolsky, Principal and Founder of ThinkJar, a leading advisory
firm and think tank. "Employees are often frustrated with the rigidity

customers a more social and rewarding way to engage internally, for
