Confluence is an excellent social collaboration tool that helps teams work together better. But Confluence by itself is not a full-fledged intranet system and does not aspire to be one. It focuses on modern team collaboration (Intranet 2.0) and not on corporate requirements for intranets (Intranet 1.0). Our Linchpin solution combines both approaches and turns the excellent Confluence base into a proper social intranet where employees can work together smoothly but which still meets traditional intranet requirements.
A growing number of big corporations is using Linchpin as their intranet technology. There are some, that simply want a fast and reliable result. But others really put a focus on preparation, concepts and a thorough strategy for the intranet rollout. Right now we are in the middle of preparing an employee survey for a new intranet project and this is my effort to contribute to the conception phase and also help you plan your intranet better.
This post is about Linchpin Intranet in 2016. It wants to give you some background information and ask you to participate in our survey to help us understand what you need from us. Please help. We promise to listen closely and offer high value to those who believe in our technology.
This post is about Linch and Pin and their conversations about collaboration in an elevator. The two are working in a big corporation and analyze the difficulties of collaboration in this company during their encounters. They know, that there is a better way, but they are not in charge. Linch and Pin are the stars of our upcoming new video series. Stay tuned!
It’s been a simple JIRA issue at first with the summary: “Optimize your own public profile”. Every email I write contains a simple footer with my phone number and a link to my English profile page. I realize, that the importance of the linked page is rising. That’s how the JIRA issue about optimizing this page was created: I wanted to put some effort in my profile optimization. That’s why I am creating this blog post as a public documentation and a point for you to comment on and help me get more ideas.

We are planning the next Intranet Dinner in Saint Louis. RSVP now if you can be there on December 14th. (There is a video about the St. Louis Intranet Dinner.)
Collaboration platforms are always deployed with high hopes and the best of intentions. Sadly, though, neither of these things have anything to do with whether it will be successful. While it may take quite some time for a failed deployment to go off the rails, you can be sure the stage was set in it’s infancy.
