Intranet systems beyond SharePoint – overview to best alternatives with Perttu Tolvanen.
Presented at Intranätverk 2014, 21 May 2014 in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Due to different reasons, many organisations look for alternatives to SharePoint as intranet platform. This presentation will cover the most typical intranet scenarios and most typical competing systems for them. The presentation will analyze the market from the perspective of Scandinavia and will cover systems like Liferay, Confluence, EPiServer, Alfresco, etc. Key questions:
- What are the most common WCMS and portal systems that are challenging SharePoint in the areas where SharePoint is weak?
- In what kind of situations you should question SharePoint as being the default choice for intranet? How to make that argument and also offer strong alternatives?
- What are the key differentiators between systems? Eg. language management, document management, search capabilities.
- Where is the WCMS market going? Can we expect more competitors to SharePoint in the future?
