I have been given the task of mapping out / creating a new company Intranet for our company which has just merged/expanded with two other companies in other cities.
I am thinking I would like to use SharePoint for this, but don't know too much about it- and we don't have it.. but that isn't a problem, we could get it.
I am thinking SharePoint because it seems (at least through my initial glances around google) to be suited for this without the need to have any indepth web development experience. I know SharePoint has a learning curve, but I could take a course in SharePoint. I also like the fact that it integrates well with Office. We have heavy use of Office 2010 throughout the company.
Any advice as I start out on this?
I really need to do well on this as I have a new boss.. so I don't care how much time I need to put it.
