25 January 2006


Blogger Jakob Nielsen has just released his list of the ten best-designed intranets for 2006. They are:

  • Allianz Australia Insurance, Australia
  • ALTANA Pharma AG, Germany
  • Bank of Ireland Group, Ireland
  • Capital One, USA
  • IBM, USA
  • Merrill Lynch, USA
  • METRO Group, Germany
  • O2, UK
  • Staples, USA
  • Vodafone, UK

In previous years, the winners were smaller companies, but there were much larger companies in this year’s list. Also, more of the winners were from outside the USA. Other trends: under-representation of manufacturing companies, more from financial companies; consistent look and feel within the intranet; use of task-based information architectures; very complete navigation systems; use of many different software platforms; significant use of video on the intranet; increased access via mobile devices; and increased availability of e-learning features.

You can download his full report, Intranet Design Annual, with screenshots, for US$148.00.
