A recent poll on the Intranet Professionals LinkedIn Group asked the question, On what technology is your intranet based? The poll was completed by 379 people. The results are below:
195 people indicated that they use a version of SharePoint while 184 use an alternative. So around 50% of organisations are using SharePoint for their intranets. Of the people who selected 'Other', 146 listed the technology they use in the comments section.
So what other technologies, besides SharePoint, are other organisations using to develop their intranets?
Top 20 alternative SharePoint intranet technologies
Listed below are the most popular alternative intranet technologies, based on the poll results.
Notes on how technologies were ranked
- It's not clear whether people selected the 'Like' as an indication that they also use the technology OR as an endorsement of the technology. For this reason, I allocated only half a point for each 'like'.
- Also some organisations use a combination of technologies. In this case, I've counted each instance of a technology as 1 point. For example, if an organisation is using both Vignette and IBM Websphere Portal, I've allocated one point to both of these technologies.
