10 Best Intranets of 2008

The winners of the award for 10 best-designed intranets for 2008 are:

  • Bank of America, US
  • Bankinter S.A., Spain
  • Barnes & Noble, US
  • British Airways, UK
  • Campbell Soup Company, US
  • Coldwell Banker Real Estate Corporation, US
  • IKEA North America Service, LLC, US
  • Ministry of Transport, New Zealand
  • New South Wales Department of Primary Industries, Australia
  • SAP AG, Germany

Most of the winning designs are traditional, company-wide intranets, but IKEA won for its regional intranet covering North America. Also, Coldwell Banker’s intranet works somewhat like an extranet: it connects 3,800 independently owned and operated residential and commercial real estate offices, while appearing to users as a local office intranet rather than a corporate intranet.

Half of the winners are from the US, closely matching the nation’s long-term performance average of 53%. The remaining five winners hail from five different countries. The southern hemisphere is strongly represented this year, including the first-ever winner from New Zealand.
