TECOM Investments, a Dubai Holding subsidiary and a leading developer of knowledge-based business clusters, recently enlisted the services of Netways to implement an Intranet Portal based on Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.
A recognized leader in the global knowledge-based industry, TECOM Investments manages entities like Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City, Dubai Knowledge Village, Dubai International Academic City, eHosting DataFort, International Media Production Zone, Dubai Outsource Zone, Dubai Studio City, DuBiotech and Enpark. These initiatives are part of Dubai's long-term vision of diversifying its economy to reduce oil dependency and developing its knowledge- based industries.
The intranet portal, which is aimed at enhancing information sharing and collaboration among TECOM’s employees, includes more than 35 dedicated sub-sites for the various subsidiaries and divisions within TECOM, some of which will have their own look-and-feel.
Various Enterprise Content Management features are utilized to give the portal users a rich experience, whatever their profiles are; Publishers or Readers. This ensures that the portal acts as the single source of information and news for all TECOM’s employees.
With a team dedicated to add a new success story for Netways, the project is currently moving smoothly on schedule. A soft launch is scheduled on February 5, 2009 while the expected finish date of the project will be towards mid of March 2009.
