First pilot takes to the air!

On 19 March, ABB in Norway kicked off the migration of ABB's intranet.

The migration went smoothly and intranet users in Norway are now able to comment on all pages on inside/no (both News and other pages) and rate each page on a scale from 1 to 5.

Since the launch, there have been more than 18.000 visits to the Norwegian intranet, 200 ratings have been recorded, and roughly 15 comments have been submitted.

-Posting comments live on the intranet may seem like a daring thing to do, so I think the readers will need some time to get used to that functionality, says Helene Gunther Merg, head of Corporate Communications in Norway. -But quite a few of our pages have already been rated by many of our users, and we are happy to receive any feedback, good or bad.

Ready for piloting

After several weeks of testing we are now ready to launch our first pilot of ABB's migrated intranet. If all goes according to plan and the last showstopping bugs are dealt with, will be switched to the new platform on Saturday 15 March.

Our next pilot will be, scheduled for launch in April.

If everything goes well with the pilots, one country site after another will be switched to the new platform. Country site managers will receive guidance about this in due time.
