Intranet-as-a-Service Middle Ground

French concern eXo believes there is a gap in social intranet offerings. Some are purely consumer-oriented public services like Facebook and lack the discipline for enterprise use. Other enterprise tools are hard to set up and take too long to establish, especially for ad hoc use.

eXo thinks it has the perfect middle ground with its Java-based eXo Cloud Workspaces. This tool is designed to let users build their own social intranets equipped with shared calendars, shared documents, wikis and access to all this through popular mobile devices (otherwise known as iPhone/iPads and Android phones and tablets. Windows, someday you'll have your day).

At the same time, IT can centralize what information end users access and how. This should be the best of both worlds.
