What is SharePoint Intranet
A SharePoint intranet is a web-based platform built on Microsoft SharePoint technology that serves as a hub for internal communication and collaboration within an business. It provides employees with a secure space to access company information, resources, and tools.
A SharePoint intranet typically includes a range of features and functionalities, such as document management, team sites, news and announcements, employee directories, task management, discussion boards, and social networking capabilities. It offers a user-friendly interface that allows employees to easily navigate and interact with the intranet’s content.
Is SharePoint an intranet or an Extranet?
SharePoint is primarily designed as an intranet platform. It serves as a powerful tool for building and managing internal communication and collaboration portals. SharePoint intranets are used to facilitate communication, document sharing, and teamwork among employees.
What is the difference between SharePoint Intranet and SharePoint Online?
The main differences between SharePoint Intranet and SharePoint Online are the deployment model and management approach. A SharePoint Intranet built on premise can require businesses to host and maintain their own SharePoint server infrastructure, while SharePoint Online is a cloud-based service managed by Microsoft. SharePoint Online provides the advantages of cloud computing, such as easier scalability, automatic updates, and accessibility across devices.
Microsoft is increasingly focusing on SharePoint Online and encouraging businesses to adopt cloud-based hosted solutions because it offers a wide range of features and integrations with other Microsoft 365 services, enabling businesses to build robust intranet and collaboration solutions without the need for extensive infrastructure management.
How do I create an intranet in SharePoint
Creating an intranet in SharePoint involves a step-by-step process. First we will plan with you your intranet by defining your goals and what features and content structure you would prefer. Next, we will start to set up SharePoint either in the Microsoft 365 admin centre or by configuring the on-premises SharePoint server. We will also design the intranet site for you by choosing a suitable template and customising its branding and layout depending on your preferences.
Once the initial site is there our SharePoint Developers can start to configure the site navigation to ensure easy access to your important content and features. This will include creating and organising content such as pages, document libraries, and lists. This may also be when we look at migrating any data you would like to appear in your intranet solution. We can enable collaboration features like discussion boards, calendars, and shared documents to enhance team collaboration.
Before any SharePoint site can go live we will implement security and permissions by setting up appropriate access controls to protect sensitive information. Finally, we can discuss with your training and hosting needs and communication of the launch for your employees to promote a successful adoption.
