  • 3 innovations for smarter Intranets

    For our all-new Now Assistant we have identified three key innovations that signal a new era in Intranets. They allow to break down silos, make your Intranet available literally everywhere and make communication with them more intuitive and natural. In this post we will explain these three innovations.

    First up: New ways to Search

    Search, while making an appearance in almost every single enterprise application, is seldom executed well & …

  • What’s the difference between Intranet and AI Assistants

    AI Assistants are not just a way to make legacy Intranets smarter, they also pack a bunch of changes under the hood – some natural evolutions, others mark a rather comprehensive delineation from the way “old” IT was run. For the sake of this comparison we are comparing adenin’s IntelliEnterprise Intranet Suite with Now Assistant; let’s take a look:

    Silos are suddenly a good thing

    IntelliEnterprise is one of those …

  • Work, meet AI

    AI has been capturing people's imaginations since sci-fi movies in the 80s–at least. Some folks say the even Ancient Greek dreamt of AIs, I mean what else is the Oracle of Delphi if not a personified Big Data prediction machine…

    Jokes aside, Artificial Intelligence has been the promising technology that makes our life easier through technologies like Machine Learning or Artificial Intelligence (read their definition here). Every …

  • The 3 genres of AI you should know about

    Artificial Intelligence makes its way into everything – from autonomous vehicles over self-responding emails to smart homes. It seems like you could take just about any commodity (healthcare, flying, travelling, etc.,) and make it smarter through a specialized application of AI. So unless you believe in a Terminator-style turn of events, you will probably ask yourself what benefits AI could herald for your workplace or line of business …

  • Social Intranets – snake oil or silver bullet?

    Since Microsoft became serious about pushing SharePoint, their market share has only known one way: Up. Straight past IBM Websphere, Lotus Notes (also owned by IBM) and many other worthy contenders (adenin's own Intranet software included). Today SharePoint runs at least two thirds of all Intranets, which means it has played a significant role in shaping the Enterprise 2.0 movement. In 2011 SharePoint powered 55% of all Social Intranets and that …

  • Another word for ‘digital workplace’?

    The hype around ‘digital workplaces’ is clouded with a lot of inside baseball. Since all the definitions that exist aren’t exactly concise, we took upon ourselves to think of our own. For adenin, a digital workplace above all means: Independence.

    We want employees to be independent of their physical desktops, from the devices and apps they use, and from the departmental roles they are confined to. We want them to be free from …

  • MADP – what is it and how is it different from MEAP?

    Is MADP yet another alphabet soup? In today’s landscape organizations may find it hard to know if they need a MEAP, a MADP, a MDM or all of them or none. Let’s see what MADP means and how it stacks up.

    Definition of MADP

    If you already know what a MADP is just skip this next paragraph, otherwise buckle up:

    MADP stands for ‘mobile application development platform’ and it allows organizations to build apps easily across …

  • What is and what isn’t the digital workplace?

    It is perhaps the most confused buzzword on the Internet recently. The digital workplace that claims to eliminate all your workplace chores. Let’s cut through the Clouds and see what it’s all about.

    What Gartner says

    If there was something like a legislative institution for business software and upcoming trends, it’s name would be Gartner. And according to Gartner the Digital Workplace

    enables new, more effective ways …

  • Thoughts on Intranets

    In recent time it seems ‘mobile Intranets’ are becoming a ubiquitous addition to the traditional ‘Intranet portal’. What users mostly end up with is just a mobile access to the pages in their Intranet. In this article we are going to share a few thoughts about why this is not the best solution to leverage mobile devices – and how a holistic new school of thought can help us work more productively in the digital age. …

  • Enterprise IT-as-a-Service – buzzword or buzz kill?

    Before you begin, notice how here we explore Enterprise IT-as-a-Service, not Enterprise as a Service; two similar sounding but entirely different animals.

    Broadly speaking the Enterprise IT-as-a-Service idea sees IT evolve away from being the centralized technology monopoly to being a technology “utility” provider. As such departments have virtually free choice to apply technology the way that best fits their business case. …
