Client Profile

Anglo American plc is a British multinational mining company based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and London, United Kingdom. It is the world’s largest producer of platinum, with around 40% of world output, as well as being a major producer of diamonds, copper, nickel, iron ore, and metallurgical and thermal coal.

Situation

Anglo American made a decision to invest in Microsoft 365 and an Intranet-in-a-Box product for their next-generation intranet and wanted to migrate selected content from a legacy Jive intranet platform.

Solution

Migration effort followed a specific strategy of avoiding migration of any “throwaway” content and instead focus on migrating key content in a way that demonstrated the capabilities of the new platform and encouraged future user adoption in these areas.

Business Benefits

  • Flexible migration approach that allowed for an extended time period for site owner optimization sites in the new platform
  • Provided an intranet built on O365/SharePoint that leveraged existing Microsoft licensing and related cost reductions
  • Intranet positioned on a modern/continuously updated platform
  • Migrated approximately 5,000 Jive Places​
