An Intranet That Rocks! Introducing The Hub!

Description

The Kresge Foundation has undergone a major overhaul of its intranet. The new intranet called “The Hub”, which resides on a SharePoint platform called Valo, launched in September of 2019. It has become a critical means of communication among staff especially during the pandemic and the social uprising. It is also a wealth of information for new staff and serves as an integration point for other systems, electronic forms and dashboards. This presentation will show how The Hub integrates with PowerBi, DocuSign, the Kresge Internet, Active Directory, Okta and several other systems used by the foundation.
