Retention of valuable knowledge assets
Knowledge is one of your organization's most valuable assets. Novell Vibe OnPrem makes it easy to find the relevant knowledge and resources that team members need to be highly efficient and productive. But even better, it preserves it long after the original contributors have left the team or the company. It helps ensure that the collective knowledge of any skilled group is never lost, and is always available to the organization. Documents, conversations and communal knowledge relevant to specific teams are all stored in a single, secure workspace where team members can use them at any time. Built-in identity and security controls let you share that wealth of insights and knowledge with confidence. Also, since you can easily tag data as it's created, it is simple for team members to quickly find relevant information and ideas as needed.
Augment or replace existing intranet systems

These landing pages can easily mashup existing content with the continual flow of new information from various workspaces, and then present it to the internal web community.
