|A brief introduction to Intranet and
its benefits to an organization
Intranets are Web applications applied internally to organizations. These applications are built on Internet technologies such as Web server, Web browsers, standard TCP/IP networks, and development tools like HTML and CGI programming, bringing tremendous benefits to organization in an inexpensive way.
Intranets provide an effective way to organize, share and disseminate information within organizations, which enable management and staff to communicate and collaborate more effectively regardless of their locations and computer types. Organizations that historically depend on the word of mouth, memoranda, newsletters, or email are finding that Intranets are a much better solution to disseminate information.
Intranets have experienced an explosion in growth in recent years as their applications contribute a greater productivity of employees, and also allow for fundamental changes in the way business processes are conducted.
What benefits an Intranet can bring for your company? Here, we give a list of a few examples.

Training and Maintenance
Intranets serve to centralize information as employees can go to a single source (their Web browser) to obtain information. This is true even in organizations with widely distributed sources of information and databases. For example, a company might have manufacturing and production information at its facilities in Singapore, policy information at its corporate headquarters in Boston, and sales figures and marketing leads at each of its distributors' offices around the world. An employee at any regional office could have access to information from any of these sites via an organizational Intranet. The employee need not be concerned with where information physically resides because it appears as though it is from a common source.
Organize External Information Sources
Intranets help to organize and consolidate not only internal information, but they serve as a platform for organizing and presenting information existing outside the organization. Intranet applications can maintain WWW links to a variety of information sources of importance to an organization, such as the following:
All of these are potential sources of data and information that can improve the way an organization conducts its business or remains competitive. And, with the advent of intelligent agents and automated Web-crawling informational "robots," these technologies will become integrated into Intranets so that employee can keep up with the latest developments affecting their organization.
Decrease Cost and Increase Efficiency
Intranets are resulting in reductions in costs associated with creating and distributing traditional sources of internal information. Expenses associated with printing, copying, faxing, distributing, and mailing organizational publications such as the following are being cut dramatically:
In large organizations, the savings in paper costs alone can often offset the initial investment in the Intranet itself. The time associated with creating and distributing this information also can be reduced dramatically, especially for publications the bulk of those information could be automatically drawn from existing digital data sources.
Improve Information Sharing
Intranets greatly facilitate the sharing of internal information, such as the following among all employees:· Employee phone listings· Training material and tutorials
Provide Effective Way in Employee Training
Online tutorials, seminars, briefings, and product demonstrations can be provided to a wider number of employees over an organizations Intranet. The Web-based audio, video, and multimedia technologies, as well as development tools such as Java, more comprehensive and functional Intranet applications will bring the training more interactive. The benefits exceeding the traditional classroom methods include:
