Making the next iteration of a corporate intranet a Drupal website is an interesting way to solve that issue, Pelz-Sharpe said. Companies like Adobe and Acquia have enabled developers to create elegant apps for customers over the last 20 years and doing that for employees is the next logical step. Developers will likely see it as a new avenue to deploy and monetize their skills.
“Corporate intranets are terrible places,” Pelz-Sharpe said. “Absolutely horrible things. Everyone’s got one, and no one likes them. Nobody wants to build another one, but everybody wants to build a better employee experience.”
