BYOS02 Workshop: Build a Simple Intranet

This is the second workshop of the two on BYOS Foundation, following BYOS01, and cover the next level of BYOS technology.  In this workshop, we continue to build a simple intranet system, covering more real-life needs in an organization.  It will be more challenging with much more complications in the areas of system structure, controls, workflows, permissions, etc, and also people.  These 2 workshops complete the BYOS Foundation, which is necessary to start other real-life applications, and enter the world of digital innovation.  Other workshops in the BYOS series will work on some common practical digital platforms.

This is the second workshop to complete the BYOS Foundation, following BYOS01.  In this workshop, you will learn to face more complications building a simple intranet.  A system is normally much more demanding because there will be more ideas, requirements and more stakeholders.  In real-life, it is also change management you will have to face.  Therefore it is more challenging but that's also what makes you a true digital leader.

On the technology side, we shall go deeper into system structure, workflows and permissions, etc, covering more advanced techniques and methodologies to handle these complications.  We shall combine the website built in BYOS01 as front end, and this intranet as back end, so it will be one single installation with multiple platforms.  You will also see more in the area of user expereince (UX).

  • Face the complicated considerations in a system, which is still driven by business needs, but with more stakeholders.
