The National Retail Foundation (NRF) 2018 – Retail’s Big Show – was held last week in January, 2018, in New York City. This is a showcase of trends and technologies that will drive investment directions for the next couple of years and consumer experiences for much of the next decade.

One of the questions we frequently get asked from customers is:
How can we build and deploy a new corporate intranet that will actually get used?
Many organizations believe in the what I like to call the “field of dreams” approach of “if you build it they will come”, but we know that is not always a practical reality. Akumina’s experience with thousands of enterprises tells us that this is far from the truth and that most organizations suffer from deploying an intranet that employees don’t use after the initial launch.
