MITRE's Handshake Gets Intranet Innovation Gold AwardJanuary 2011
Handshake, MITRE's partner-accessible social network application, was recently named a Gold winner of the international Intranet Innovation Awards. Calling Handshake "a social network intranet application with a difference," the award citation noted that the capability allows MITRE employees to connect not only to one another, but to external partners. Presented since 2007 by the consulting firm Step Two Designs, the annual Intranet Innovation Awards recognize new and innovative approaches to the design, enhancement, and delivery of intranets. Rather than awarding intranets as a whole, the awards focus on individual intranet improvements, with a goal of sharing ideas and increasing the pace of innovation across intranets worldwide.
