Joe Flood pitches the advantages of using WordPress and assorted plugins as your Intranet, in place of more bloated systems:
By using WordPress, you turn “add this information to the Intranet” from a frustrating task into something as simple as blogging. And just think how good your Intranet could be if people actually wanted to contribute to it.
Ben Balter, who participated in the Google Summer of Code by creating the WP Document Revisions plugin:
If you ask me why an organization should use SharePoint, I have at my fingertips focus-group tested ammunition. Ask my why you should use WordPress, and I’m left to pretty much fend for myself. Curators of innovative technology need to make themselves known, and give those empowered to affect change, the tools to do so.
Ben Balter built the WP Document Revisions plugin as part of the Google Summer of Code. In this screencast he shows how a team can use it to collaborate on documents using WordPress’ revisions system, which he has extended to include file revisions.
Do you have a purpose for this new plugin? Are you already using it or playing with it?
