Modern is ready, and we’re here to help you get there

It’s time. It’s time to improve the performance from your intranet. It’s time to put the power of all your content, people and information in the pocket of each and every employee – especially when they are mobile. It’s time to improve your return on investment. Build your modern intranet on SharePoint in Office 365 and get the benefits of investing in business outcomes – reducing IT and development costs, increasing business speed and agility, and up-leveling the dynamic and welcoming nature of your intranet.

SharePoint team sites and communication sites are easy to build – to promote new ways of working together and help reach broad internal audiences while providing the level of control you require. And you’ll use hub sites to help organize all your sites with governance.

Use SharePoint sites out-of-the-box or extend them using the developer SharePoint Framework. They are your sites. Review the rest of this page and follow the links to guidance and best practices across numerous topics.


Global advertising giant Wavemaker is based in London, England, with 138 offices in 90 countries. To help employees communicate and work efficiently on a global scale, the company instituted New Ways of Working using Microsoft Office 365. Wavemaker saw Office 365 as a well-integrated set of tools that would make it easier for employees to accomplish their everyday tasks. They use a Wavemaker site
where people can go for all of the latest company news—it’s a one-stop shop to find out what’s happening with the business: CEO updates, departmental news, facilities news, and new employee tips.

“We cannot continue to deliver work in old ways. We have to change. And we’re using Microsoft solutions to do that.” — David Kaganovsky, global chief technology officer – Wavemaker

“We love SharePoint communication sites. They’ve become a central hub where we go for information.” — Lily McCann, Data and Technology Director – Wavemaker.
