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 had such a tremendous response to our Intranet Dinner in New York that it sold out in just a few days. We’ve added a few more spots but you must register by Wednesday, December 2!

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.
Atlassian’s Confluence has developed over the past years from a mere enterprise wiki to an enterprise social collaboration platform. Nowadays, the system and various third party plugins offer anything that is necessary for building a professional, scaleable social intranet for enterprises. How can such a platform be built up – especially in large enterprises? Which hurdles need to be crossed? Which approach is appropriate? During our Atlassian Enterprise Club meeting with customers, Martin Seibert, CEO of //SEIBERT/MEDIA presented on the following topic: “Building Social Intranets with Confluence”
Martin Seibert and Erik Klein present the Confluence based intranet solution LINCHPIN by //SEIBERT/MEDIA.

Why use LINCHPIN to implement a real social intranet? LINCHPIN is the central hub for your employees, featuring top down communication and full personalization, depending on location and language settings. Based on your LDAP, your active directory, the Navigation Menu Editor will customize contents for the user. LINCHPIN offers News, Highlights, Expert Search, Menus, and much more.
The Highlights plugin within the LINCHPIN social intranet allows different corporate news to be published to different user groups, depending on their location, department or other variables. It is based on the Custom User Profile plugin. In this video, Martin Seibert and Eric Klein demonstrate the features of the Highlights plugin.
Events, team events and office parties take place in every company. Meetings and discussions are part of daily life at the office. Creating and operationalizing Confluence documents to organize acceptances and rejections is repetitive and time-consuming work. The EasyEvents Confluence plugin developed by //SEIBERT/MEDIA does a lot of this work for you.
The Duplicate Content Defender plugin is a Confluence extension developed by //SEIBERT/MEDIA that points out similar existing content while creating new wiki pages. When a user creates a new page and enters the title, the plugin reports if there is corresponding or overlapping content. This function is simple and provides a number of benefits.
The Navigation Menu Editor plugin is one of the most visible part of the LINCHPIN social intranet. It offers a user specific navigation, based on the Custom User Profile Plugin. Depending on language, location, department, projects or other criteria, the navigation menu will adjust accordingly. Martin Seibert and Eric Klein give a brief introduction to the Navigation Menu Editor plugin in this video.
