Navigation menus are an important requirement for customers who use corporate intranets. However, the standard version of Confluence doesn’t offer many options that give you control over your navigation menus. This is where the Linchpin Navigation Menus app (previously called the Navigation Menu Editor) comes into play. It adds this much-needed functionality to Confluence, and along with the other central components of the Linchpin intranet suite, it extends Confluence to be a complete corporate intranet.
We are a closely-knit team at //SEIBERT/MEDIA, and we enjoy spending time together during various events and have also established a number of different company sports groups for a healthy balance – from soccer to yoga, to badminton. I will introduce you to some of them in this post!
Many businesses choose cloud data warehouse services, like Amazon Redshift, Google BigQuery, etc. to analyze their data, as they offer high scalability and on-demand computing power and are supported by a large number of various data analysis tools. Let’s consider a more specific case when there is a need to analyze company data from a Jira system, and Google BigQuery is selected as a data warehouse for analysis. There can be different ways to solve this scenario – build vs. buy.
//SEIBERT/MEDIA has offices at several locations in Wiesbaden, the largest of them residing on the fifth floor of the Luisen Forum, a shopping center in the middle of the city. Around the building there is a wonderful roof terrace where you can relax, grill and look over Wiesbaden. We thought that the location would also be a good place to provide the surrounding pedestrian area with free Wi-Fi. Here at //SEIBERT/MEDIA we believe that people with access to more information will make better decisions and that such access ought to be free. Keeping this in mind, we have teamed up with Freifunk (“Free Radio”) Wiesbaden and installed a free Wi-Fi hotspot on our terrace for use in the surrounding pedestrian area.
There are quite a few intranet systems that include native instant messenger solutions with integrated chat functions. At first glance, an all-in-one package like this might seem attractive. But looking a bit more closely, it might not be such a good idea.
Data security is still a frequently discussed topic in cloud services, and rightly so: How is our organization’s information protected – both by our cloud provider and “during transmission”? What happens to our data when it’s with the cloud provider? What precautions are taken prevent data loss or misuse? Customers can rest assured that their trust in Google’s enterprise software is not misplaced: Google Cloud has successfully completed the BSI C5 audit.
Linchpin User Profiles is a key module of the Confluence-based social intranet suite, Linchpin that enables users to expand their Confluence user profiles. It also includes an internal expert search function, which is the focus of the latest version of Linchpin User Profiles. Here we will look at how this creates a more flexible and successful user experience when searching.
It is clear there is only so much synchronous communication a person can participate in. There is a natural limit to the amount of time you can spend coordinating with others in real-time, and ultimately, the rhythm of your workday defines the upper limit. In this post, we look at how to make active and conscious choices on when synchronous communication is effective and when it’s not.
After our offices in the Luisen Forum building and neighboring ESWE Tower in Wiesbaden had become a little crowded, we went on the search for new office space and found it in Adolfstrasse 16! Here we look at the unique design concept in the new office and what is next for our existing offices.
The Easy Events RSVP app has very successfully allowed many of our customers to manage their events directly in Confluence and in the Confluence-based Linchpin social intranet suite. Easy Events has been on the Atlassian Marketplace for five years now! In light of this anniversary, we will be giving the app a complete refresh and a new name: Linchpin Events. We’d like to let you know what we have in store and build a little excitement and anticipation around the upcoming release.
