Six years ago I wrote an article for Virtual Business Magazine where I espoused the need and likely convergence of the intranet, extranet and Internet. Now, an Internet lifetime later, more and more companies are deploying a single platform to manage the corporate, intranet, extranet and Internet Websites.
Single platform deployment for multiple audiences is not just for large corporations. More and more medium-size and even small size companies are using a single platform to run multiple sites for multiple audiences.
The San Diego Blood Bank is a case in point. It just announced it is deploying a single web content management platform from OpenText to manage its various internal and external websites.
