Abstract [en]

Intranets have become a prevalent part of organisational structure and, to varying degree, an aspect of organising and collaboration. While many organisations are currently grappling with how to realise the promises of Sharepoint, (and how to keep a reasonable budget while doing so) others look skywards, and see the cloud as an ever more viable alternative. Some use traditional email, calendars and document processing, but Google style – as a service – to meet the needs previously believed to call for intranets. Others, reportedly, even use combinations of facebook and Google docs, as their user-administered “intranet”. In this article, I present some cases of such traditional and novel approaches to IT-supported collaboration, and analyse the organisational consequences of the chosen solutions.
