Powell 365: Leading Intran et as a Service

Powell Software is excited to be cited for the first time in Gartner’s latest Hype Cycle for the Digital Workplace, 2018 as a leading intranet as a service solution. This latest research note by Gartner is all about “the workforce digital dexterity”, which is the ultimate goal of a digital workplace program. The company offers multiple analyses of different tools, work styles and skills that drive business with the latest technology. Each analysis provides an in-depth look at each subject and includes definitions, justifications, advices and more.


Intranet as a Service

Intranet as a service is one of the topics addressed in the Hype Cycle. Gartner defines intranet as a service as “an easily deployable SaaS package that provides functionality and interfaces common to web-based intranets, especially those geared for employee engagement, self-service and knowledge management”.

Today, intranet as a service is a growing market. Companies are looking for a ready-to-go intranet that will meet their current needs but also can evolve over time as their needs change. Jim Murphy, Senior Analyst at Gartner emphasizes how major cloud office platform providers, like Microsoft and Google, do not offer this kind of solution. Therefore, companies look to intranet as a service solutions, like Powell 365, to fill the gap.
