PIIPE – Social Intranet

Dataport AöR implements its new social intranet with the NEOCOSMO platform PIIPE

As early as March 2021, NEOCOSMO GmbH and its partner Data One GmbH were awarded the contract for the implementation of the new social intranet of Dataport AöR after a public bidding competition. The new social intranet is currently under construction. It should be available for the 4,000 employees at the beginning of 2022.

The NEOCOSMO platform PIIPE and the underlying open source CMS Drupal form the basis of the social intranet of the IT service provider. In combination with the latest SharePoint version from Microsoft, a total solution for internal communication, exchange and collaboration is going to be implemented. NEOCOSMO is responsible for the customization, configuration and deployment of the software solution including mobile app. Data One is responsible for the project-related change management accompanying. The intranet will be operated in Dataport’s data centers.

Dr. Volker Zimmermann, CEO of NEOCOSMO, is pleased with the project order: “Dataport as a customer represents an important milestone for us. After all, the company has the highest standards for innovation, open technologies and security. In addition, its employees have high expectations of a modern social intranet in terms of functional possibilities and usability. All of these aspects will allow us to advance our product. In addition, the way the social intranet integrates with Microsoft’s SharePoint solutions to support collaboration will be pioneering.”

It is sponsored by the federal states of Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Schleswig-Holstein, as well as the municipal “IT-Verbund Schleswig-Holstein”.
