Successful rollout of Liferay social intranet MyAHK

The intranet of Amsterdam University of the Arts - MyAHK – has been redesigned. Componence developed a social intranet based on Liferay Social Office EE for the 3,000+ students and about 800 employees of this higher professional education institution. They now have easy access to handy collaboration tools and personalized information.

Knowledge sharing and collaboration

The new social intranet of the AHK offers students and personnel extensive possibilities for effective collaboration and knowledge sharing. On the private intranet sites of the various faculties, they have access to familiar collaboration tools such as blogs, wikis, forums and microblogging. They can also set up their own collaboration and project sites. Files can be shared easily and are centrally available in a secure online document library.

News and customized information

The partly personalized MyAHK start page shows users announcements and relevant news items from the AHK and their own faculty. An address book is also provided, as well as quick links to handy websites and apps, including the electronic learning environment Blackboard and the results registration system Alluris.

Liferay Platinum Partner Componence developed MyAHK on the basis of Liferay Social Office Enterprise Edition, combining the standard functionality of Liferay with various tailor-made solutions. The students and personnel of the AHK can consult this responsive social intranet from any device, whether PC, smartphone or tablet.
