Neil Morgan, Richemont International: 

On my mobile device, driven by search.

Steve Sale, AstraZeneca:

The intranet will be the hub for all IT systems in the enterprise. At home everything on the computer starts with Google, at work, it starts from the Intranet & Search.

Virpi Oinonen, Business Goes Social:

More intranets that integrate with other platforms and social collaboration will continue its rise.

Christian Carlsson, Grundfos:

It will still be there in some form. But the border between internal (today intranet) and external (the rest of the digital experience) might have faded away even more. An intranet is not a “place”. It is work.

Frank Sielaff, Merck:

Essential (survival critical) part of the business. Seamless integration of classical communication, social networking and document sharing.

Hubert Turaj, EDISONDA:

Intranets will become more and more personal. The content will adjust to individual preferences and work habits just like popular tools are responding in a magical way to users’ visible or tacit preferences. Intranets will be more opened and transparent, more focused on collaboration and sharing. Intranets will become multichannel and less attached to specific device or context. There will be more advanced, possibly semi-automated, mechanism for keeping content up to date.

Jeff Fried, BA Insight:

Many more intranets will be dynamic and personalized. In particular Search will become the primary means to organize, present, and explore information on intranets.

Lars Thostrup, Danske Bank:

More a digital workplace, more conversational, and absolutely mobile.

Luis Suarez:

Mostly, vanished into thin air. Organisations would just need to protect their Assets & IP and the rest of the work interactions will be happening out there on the Open Social Web where their customers and business partners already are.

Marc D. Anderson, Sympraxis Consulting LLC:

Much more of a collaboration space than a publishing one. Possibly more prepackaged than bespoke. (Three years isn’t a lot of time. Maybe 5-7.)

Ralf Larsson, Electrolux:

Being more focused and relevant.

Steve Bynghall, Two Hives:

Blurring into the digital workplace but still recognizable as an intranet!

Dennis Agusi, Philips:

The intranet will become the cornerstone of the digital workplace in three years’ time and search becomes key to deliver relevant and personalized information.

Jean-Luc Abelin, LAFARGE:

Used as a portal to reach all apps and displays short terms news.

Richard Gera, GlaxoSmithKline:

Still relevant but perhaps more broken up into areas supporting specific use cases –Comms, services, Collaboration, workflow etc.

Shaula Zanchi, Robin Partington & Partners:

The digital workspace will have intranets at their core.

Kevin Austin, Shell International:

A big shift to mobile and cloud, people work differently these days and there is a lot of pressure to be able to have the information they need at their fingertips.

Hanna Karppi, Skanska:

Mobile, 2-way communications, better information quality – there is still need for an intranet.

Kaisa Hilden, Yleisradio:

In 3 years the role of the intranet has changed from corporate communications platform to democratic collaboration enabler. The key word is collaboration, not communication.
