Webinar Recap: Project Strategies to Drive Your Intranet Project to Success
Prior to COVID, 65-75% of Crowdstrike’s workforce already consisted of dedicated remote, global employees. The organization was looking for an intuitive, easy-to-use platform to unite the global workforce, and that integrated with best-in-class solutions (Box and Okta) as a cybersecurity company. As Crowdstrike evaluated intranet vendors and options - the organization ran into whether they should build vs buy.
5 questions to ask to determine build vs buy:
What do you do as an organization? What makes money?
Do you have a dedicated expert in the intranet field?
Can you sustain long-term costs?
Customization vs configuration costs
Can you commit the resources to see this project through?
Do you have the technical resources/staff for ongoing maintenance?
