To help you see exactly what happens when you collaborate with us on a Linchpin intranet project, we’ve detailed all of the components and services we normally provide in an Linchpin introductory project. This includes all of the workshops, a typical timeline, and details of the training sessions that your staff can take advantage of.
After the free version of the Linchpin Theme Plugin came out on the Atlassian Marketplace a few weeks ago, our development team also released an enterprise edition. The Linchpin Theme Plugin allows you to customize Confluence without having to do any programming. You can tailor it specifically to your organization’s design, create a header and logo, custom footer and navigation menu, personalized buttons and other elements. What used to be a project in and of itself can now be done with considerably less effort. You can even switch between different themes as needed.
All of the standard plugin features are also included in the Enterprise add-on—and then then some.
A social intranet can greatly contribute to being better, more efficient and more effective – but a crucial question which, unfortunately, is not very often answered, is: Why should we all work better, more efficiently and more effectively? What is the reasoning behind this? Or what should be the reason?
Right after the Atlassian Summit Europe has finished in Barcelona, we have a leading Atlassian employee as our guest in Wiesbaden: John Wetenhall. We have a lot planned – join us for a webinar on 9 May, arrange a private discussion on the 8 or 9 May, or drop in to the Rhein-Main Atlassian user group on the 9 May.
There isn’t much debate when it comes to the meaning of corporate branding. Both external and internal communication demand clean lines, if we’re talking about the general image of a company. With the introduction and development of an enterprise wiki, like Confluence, the adaptation to individual corporate design can bring value to companies and, most of all, to employees.
The first //SEIBERT/MEDIA client to introduce a Linchpin intranet to their organization was MEYER WERFT GmbH & Co. KG. The German shipbuilding company, which has been in business since 1795, is renowned for its shipyard in Papenburg. For over 200 years, the experts at this family-run business have built numerous ships. To compete internationally, production technology had to be on the cutting edge. Today, MEYER WERFT has the most modern shipbuilding facilities in the world.
Confluence and JIRA interact with one another very closely. In one of our live webinars, my colleague, Jan Kuntscher, and I demonstrate JIRA integration in Confluence. Not only do we show standard features such as individual operations, configurable process lists, and JIRA task list creation within Confluence, we also provide some helpful tips for features that may be unfamiliar to you.
Though unavoidable, unforeseen changes can at least be insured. Change within companies, however, is another matter, for which there is (to my knowledge) still no insurance. How, then, do we deal with it? Which role might an intranet play with regard to corporate change?
It’s been a while since we sent out our last newsletter and news update. So let’s go: there is readily available news all about us and our work.
An intranet is a company’s image. With things evolving rapidly both socially and economically, it’s important to recognize the trends that occur within companies as well.
Not every societal trend will find its way into the economy and companies in the near future, but with the way things are looking now, those in charge should monitor trends and at least consider them for their own intranets.
