For organizations setting out to develop a robust, comprehensive modern intranet, Gartner has recently launched a research report on the Packaged Intranet Solution market. A modern intranet experience, per our understanding of the report, offers a fast time-to-value, a relatively low cost and a wide range of scalable options for your medium or large enterprise. With options like predefined templates and layouts, prebuilt components and integrations to third-party systems, packaged intranets are a smart choice for many organizations. 

In a crowded (some might say overcrowded) market, choosing the right modern intranet solution for your business is no easy task, which is why organizations rely on the Gartner Market Guides. In the 2020 Market Guide for Intranet Packaged Solutions, Gene Phifer, Vice President, Distinguished Analyst in Gartner Research and Advisory, outlines his key findings and insights after reviewing some of the vendors (including Akumina) who provide intranet packaged solutions. 

In the Market Guide, we believe you'll learn about some of the key differentiators that can take your modern intranet from good to great, including:

  • Mobile support so your whole workforce (including frontline and deskless staff) can access the information they need, when they need it and, on any device.
  • Deep integration with the applications in your tech stack (not just a link to a splash page). At Akumina, we believe in the importance of integrating with applications both inside and outside of the Microsoft ecosystem.
  • Advanced search capabilities using the tool of your choice. Akumina customers refer to this as a “Google-like” experience.
  • Advanced platform capabilities so that you don’t get boxed in, but rather have a strong foundation to grow on and evolve over time.

We're excited to be recognized in this Market Guide, and we're excited to offer you a complimentary copy.
