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, you'll learn how to take that next crucial step. With the experiences of 13 leading companies, including JCPenney, AT&T, Bell Atlantic, EDS, Texas Instruments, and Turner Broadcasting, this book:
Shows you what you can do with groupware on the 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
