The Swedish Energy Authority wanted its intranet to be future proof, as well as being easy to update and manage. The new intranet is based on EPiServer CMS and SharePoint for the best of both worlds.
Sogeti has developed the new intranet for the Swedish Energy Agency. Their solution was earlier based on a Notes-platform but the solution was expensive and the system did not feel sustainable. When it was time to update the intranet a strategic decision was made to use SharePoint together with EPiServer CMS as a platform for the whole Agency. This was made due to the high demands on powerful document management system.
Editors' works solely in EPiServer CMS. SharePoint serves as a frame for the site. For example, when a user clicks on, employee information, policies or office information it's the EPiServer CMS part that delivers the content. The frame that SharePoint forms for the website gives users the ability to personalize their intranet through "web parts".
There are many standard web parts included in SharePoint but it is also possible to develop your own. Sogeti developed web parts called "my link", "my systems" and "search employee". In addition to these web parts from SharePoint the solutions also offers efficient document management system functionality and an advanced search function that receive relevant search results across the site as well as all documents in the document management system. SharePoint's presence will makes it easier for the Swedish Energy Agency, at some point in the future, to implement live chat and simplify the introduction of Exchange, on the agency's 'to do' list.
The Swedish Energy Agency now has a personalized website that is easy to update and administer and a powerful document control system that is good to continue to build on. The project leader from the Swedish Energy Agency comments: "The intranet combines the best of both worlds. EPiServer CMS is a highly appreciated by our editors and SharePoint has strengths when it comes to document management, personalization through web parts and search."
