Chapter 4. Create Digital Intranets

The corporate intranet is the key source of information for any organization. All major announcements, news, updates, and stories are communicated through the corporate intranet. Organizations have now become smarter and created digital intranets, which provides an easy way to share information using graphics and multimedia, gather feedback from information consumers, and have place for them to share information. In this chapter, we explore designing digital intranets using the webparts available in SharePoint communication sites.

Chapter 5. Integration of Communication Sites with Office 365 Services

Further, we saw how digital intranets using SharePoint communication sites make communication and collaboration with end users very easy and straightforward. With the available webparts, you can create visually captivating social intranets. In this chapter, we will look at the integration of SharePoint communication sites with Office 365 products and discuss high-end SharePoint communications with information flowing from other Office 365 applications such as Yammer, Power BI, Teams, Stream, and others.

Chapter 6. Use Communication Sites to Manage Communities of Practice (CoP)

In the previous chapter, we saw how we can enhance collaboration by integrating it with Office services such as Teams, Streams, Yammer, and others.

Chapter 7. Social Knowledge Management Using Communication Sites

In the previous chapter, we had an opportunity to look at how communication sites are useful in building and nurturing communities. These sites also create full-time collaborative experiences for each community member. With underlying communication sites, the sustenance and development of different communities has become possible, all to achieve the company’s goals. In this chapter, we focus on one of the specific aspects of community building—knowledge. A community must have access to knowledge in order to further its development. Knowledge management is a key principle that communities can use to harvest knowledge, reuse it, and create new knowledge for the growth of the community.

Chapter 8. Create New Horizons of Digital Communication

So, far we have seen that the SharePoint Online’s communication sites are multipurpose. We have seen that communication sites can be used for building digital intranets, managing knowledge and information, developing internal websites for different departments, and creating collaborative experiences by integrating with Office 365 products such as Yammer, Outlook, teams, Stream, and OneDrive. We have come to the last chapter now and in this, we will go one step further and describe the news of communication using SharePoint communication sites. Initially, we highlight traditional ways of communicating and see how SharePoint communication transforms traditional communication into digital with its ease of use. It allows you to create new horizons of digital communication.
