Abstract [en]

Today’s business environment is an information economy and fundamental changes have occurred in the ways people use information and communicate. People need to learn how to manage information more efficiently, and information has to be available at the right time and in the right place, which can be done by using Intranet. The purpose of this study is to examine how Swedish firms perceive and use the Intranet. In order to reach the purpose four case studies were conducted. The results show that the main objective of using Intranet is to improve information access by enabling employees to search for, request, and retrieve digital information electronically, and also increase the communication within the company. The most important advantage of using Intranet is that it provides the employees with more accurate, appropriate, and up-to-date information that leads to better decision making. The main disadvantages of Intranet are at security- and productivity level. Regarding the Intranet design the study shows that most of the companies are somewhere between the Asymmetrical and Symmetrical Intranet model.
