Key Mistakes Organizations Make With Intranet IT Architecture

By Chris Preimesberger  |  Posted 2015-04-06

With networking trends centering on private, public and hybrid clouds for the past few years, the old-school corporate intranet has taken a backseat. An intranet and a private cloud have two key facets in common: They run on central servers somewhere, and they connect employees and contractors so they can get their work done. At that point, however, their functions head in different directions. A private cloud is completely different from an intranet in that it offers a range of advanced capabilities (full stack virtualization, automated provisioning of servers, redundant failover sites and so on) with an application programming interface (API) sitting in front of it for programmatic access to the infrastructure to control resources. Many intranets are still deployed, however, but their infrastructures sometimes are not built as optimally. In this slide show, produced with eWEEK reporting and using industry expertise from Tim Eisenhauer, president of enterprise social network provider Axero Solutions, we point out some common errors to avoid in intranet development.
