Intranet Product Directory

The intranet product business is not a new one, with Orchid Software probably being the first to market an intranet product in 1995. There is currently a wide range of intranet products, which are broadly defined as being an “intranet-out-of-a-box”. Many of these are based on SharePoint 2013 or Office 365. The table below (compiled in December 2016)  lists 61 products but is very unlikely to be even close to a definitive list. Some of the products are closer to enterprise social network/collaboration applications. Although the country in which the headquarters of the company is based is listed many of the US and Canadian vendors have sales offices in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. There is an indication of whether the products are based on proprietary HTML code (denoted by Web) or on a Microsoft platform such as SharePoint or Office 365 (SP). All the columns in the table can be sorted alphabetically.

Comparing these products is not easy. The second edition of the ClearBox Consulting  SharePoint Intranets In A Box report is now available and the table below indicates which products are profiled in the report. James Dellow (ChiefTech) has compiled a directory of 28 products based on SharePoint or Office 365, each with brief profiles. Intranetizen have also profiled a number of products. I have not integrated the Intranetizen and ChiefTech lists into this listing so there will be some overlap.

It would be advisable to read Web Content Management by Deane Barker (published in March 2016) as a basis for evaluating these products. Steve Bynghall has posted a very useful SlideShare presentation and commentary on selecting an intranet CMS

In selecting a vendor it is important to consider some of the business and contractual issues and I have listed these in a recent blog post. Martin Tate has written a very comprehensive book Off The Shelf IT Products on good practice in specifying, selecting and implementing IT products which is very relevant to intranet CMS products.

I will be giving a presentation on the specification and selection of intranet products at the IntraTeam Event in Copenhagen on 1 March 2017. At the conference I will also be releasing a new report which will be an extended version of the presentation.
