Description

Build groupware capabilities into your intranet without expensive commercial groupware products

Intranet technology is an inexpensive and easier-to-use alternative to groupware products like Lotus Notes and Groupwise. But simply installing an intranet doesn't automatically endow an organization with collaborative computing. In Intranet as Groupware, intranet pioneer Mellanie Hills shows you how to take that crucial next step. With the experiences of 13 leading companies, including JC Penney, AT&T, Bell Atlantic, EDS, Texas Instruments, and Turner Broadcasting, she:
* Shows you what you can do with groupware on an intranet
* Examines intranet groupware products as well as Web-enabled proprietary groupware
* Provides step-by-step guidelines and checklists for planning and implementing intranet groupware
* Discusses how to overcome the people and change issues that make groupware difficult to implement
