The enterprise landscape is littered with dead Intranets. Digital trash cans that lay dormant. Every once in a while they are traversed by users who go digging through legacy information, which when found, might be used to help finish a report, complete a task or authenticate another process. With the speed at which business is moving, most of this content is largely outdated and irrelevant.
These Intranets are apathetic reminders that internal collaboration tools are still fundamental, but that the currency of information is defined by how well these collaboration tools feature at the center of every users work day.
Enterprise social networks enable organizations to re-purpose key Intranet content within the context of active decision making. Traditional Intranet applications fail because in the age of user-generated content, the expectation by users is that the tools they use must evolve to meet the real-time dialogue occurring across every facet of the enterprise.
