Contents of the FREE SUMMARY
The launch of SharePoint 2013 at the start of this year marked the ten-year evolution of Microsoft’s intranet and collaboration platform.
DWG’s new in-depth report “The SharePoint 2013 Intranet: An evaluation of SharePoint 2013 as a platform for intranets” aims to brief decision-makers on SharePoint 2013 from a business perspective.
Over the last decade, SharePoint has grown from a fairly simple document-centric tool to cover a range of uses:
- As an intranet for published information, both corporate-wide and for business units.
- As a portal to glue together other systems such as employee services.
- For team and project collaboration.
- For storing and disseminating documents.
- As a means of connecting employees through profiles and social media.
Although DWG is vendor-neutral, we recognize that many intranet managers will be involved in discussions with their IT team about SharePoint.
Our goal is to counterbalance a technology-driven perspective on SharePoint with a look at likely business drivers, risks and implementation demands. It includes case studies from EY, Woods Bagot and PG&E.

About DWG research
The Digital Workplace Group (DWG) carries out research into best practice in intranet and portal deployment. Covering the hottest topics in the intranet world, the studies we undertake are rooted in practical examples from among DWG member organisations as well as leading non-member companies. The results of this in-depth research act as a basis for decision-making, a source of ideas, and the basis for rich interactions between participants at DWG meetings. Generally, members are given exclusive access to our findings, although we do from time to time make a report available to non-members for a fee.
