  • (1888PressRelease) December 05, 2014 - Intranet Connections is excited to announce the release of their newest free eBook: The History of the Intranet. This eBook is focused around the history and evolution of the intranet and takes readers on a journey through the very first intranets, to intranet 2.0, all the way to the modern intranet. In addition, the eBook covers the full history of Intranet Connections from its inception in 1999 to its latest 2014 product release.

    Before the intranet came to be, organizations typically shared information through email and shared folders. Eventually, companies began to host internal webpages to share information which lead to the first intranet being created. In 1996, Frontier Technologies released the "Intranet Genie". This marked the beginning of a two-decade (and growing) long history of the intranet. In 1999, just three years after the Intranet Genie was released, Intranet Connections was born.

    During this time, intranets grew and evolved rapidly. This was due to the fact that the World Wide Web was also rapidly expanding. In 2005, websites became more interactive. Soon after, intranets followed suit with functionality that allowed users to build webpages and create customized forms. All of this lead up to the Social Intranet, also known as Intranet 2.0. The Enterprise Social Network (ESN) allows businesses to easily communicate and share information in a simple, intuitive way.

    Over the past two decades, intranet software has come a long way. From client-server platforms consisting of multiple heavyweight applications, to fully interactive lightweight web portals built around customizability and social features. Modern intranet software now provides functionality that increases employee engagement, employee retention, collaboration, internal communication, productivity and more. Intranet Connections' new eBook covers all of the above in greater detail.
