Socialtext has recently announced product enhancements that make corporate intranets more social, personalized and engaging. The company claims its intranet-focused release (4.6) can better connect employees with the relevant colleagues, information and systems that drive their business.
"First generation intranets and portal technologies have aggregated enterprise systems and enabled self-service for IT and HR tasks. They have been document repositories that make it difficult for people to find what they need to get their job done. And since content requires IT's help to update, intranets quickly become stale and outdated."
