Building your Intranet with Windows NT 4.0
About the Intranet At home and at work, you and I and millions of others have found the World Wide Web irresistible, most often for recreational and personal reasons. Even the most commonly used buzzword describing how people use the Web-surfing the 'net-implies a recreational nature about the activity. It's gotten so that some corporate officials worry about just what it is their employees are doing when they're supposed to be working. Are they really searching for work-related resources, or just surfing?
And, more importantly, what does or can this phenomenon mean to my business?
Once the novelty of the Web has worn off a bit, you wonder about its potential value as a business or educational tool. Can this slick, seductive technology be put to work inside your company, organization, or institution, to some useful, real-work end? Can you capture the enthusiasm with which your employees surf the Web and channel it into their daily duties? Can you share information about your organization with its members-employees, students, and other insiders-using this glamorous and easy-to-use mechanism?

The answer to those questions is an unqualified "Yes" in all cases, and the nuts and bolts of doing so is what this book is all about. Setting up a corporate Intranet requires you to look under the surface of the Web for new and meaningful ways it can be used. Despite its glamour and accessibility for many users, the Web is essentially a passive experience. People use their Web browsers to look at things-documents, spreadsheets, images, videos, and the like.
For the most part, however, there's very little a Web surfer can actually do with what he sees. Yes, Web pages can be saved, or printed, and there's potential value in doing so. Many Web pages contain valuable information, and pointers to other information. The information obtained from reading a Web page can often be used for some work-related purpose.
Still, the whole Web experience remains passive: You may have wondered why this attractive and easy-to-use interface can't somehow be put to work doing something active and real in a corporate or organizational environment that somehow contributes to the realization of the organization's mission. You're not alone in asking these questions. In a recent survey by Business Research Group, reported in the Wall Street Journal November 7, , nearly a quarter of medium- and large-sized companies surveyed are already setting up corporate Intranets using World Wide Web technology, while another 20 percent are actively considering doing so.
LAN Times magazine on January 22, pointed to a Zona Research study stating that , Intranets will be installed during and triple that number in ! All organizations, even noncommercial ones, have to manage themselves, buying supplies, running a physical plant, managing employees and their benefits, and otherwise keeping organizational house.

Most other Web-related books pay little attention to how Web technology can be directly used by a company or other organization in fulfilling these missions. Usually, they provide a few simple examples of some kind or other, then trail off with vague statements or even small-print footnotes to the effect that the reader should be able to use her imagination to come up with ways to apply the books' examples to her own organization. This book is about how commercial and noncommercial organizations can put Web technology to work inside their organization to do their real, everyday work.
I'll provide examples ranging from simple, everyday office tools to sophisticated databases. I'll include step-by-step instructions that show you exactly how to implement useful Web features you can use in your daily work, or in the daily work of your company.
Once you have set up your Intranet, your users will be able to use their Web browsers and other applications to help them perform their regular work duties. Using Web Technology to Create Your Intranet WWW technology can provide a familiar, user-friendly front end to a wide range of information ranging from libraries of personnel and technical documents to data warehouses full of corporate statistics, to scientific and technical data.
This data can not only be accessed with Web browsers, but can also be actively manipulated as needed. Web technology can provide front ends to commercial database applications, with both query and data-entry capabilities. Custom computer application programs can be wrapped up inside an easy-to-use Web interface, with Web-based online help a mouse click away.
Users can collaborate with others on work-related projects and share scientific data and other information, again using familiar Web technology. Because Web browsers have built-in support for many kinds of network services, you'll be able to extend your Intranet to include many other facilities.
Most of these facilities are based on no-cost and low-cost software much of which is available on the Intranet CD-ROM with this book , and they provide strong and inexpensive alternatives to commercial groupware packages like Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes. These value-added services will be useful in your organization, providing facilities that can be accessed using a Web browser via simple point and click.
