I am researching Intranet pages, and so far I've only found generic, outdated articles, and close to no showcase examples (maybe not so strange since Intranet pages are internal?)
Does anyone know great showcase examples with really modern, up-to-date, great-looking approaches to making an Intranet?
I'll even be interested in hearing if someone says that Intranets are a dead-end concept, and how other technologies can replace it.
Edit #1: Further research seems to reveal that it's not about "Intranet" anymore, but "Enterprise Social Networks". Basically, a bunch of software solutions for the workplace that all look like Facebook. In addition to this there's a grey area of CMS, Document Handling Suites, Corporate Instant Messengers, email, apps, and you're starting to wonder how anyone gets anything done these days.
Edit #2: I'd also like to hear people's experiences on trying to customize a ESN solution to fit the company's needs. Do you end up with lots of surplus functionality no-one needs and workflows that are almost-but-not-just right? Are you better off developing a tailor-made solution from scratch (if time and money are available)?
