Dan Ryan, vice president of marketing and business development for IntraNet Solutions. said the company these days "provides enterprise content management solutions for all types of business Web sites, not just intranets. We needed a stronger name that better represents our company offering, which addresses the extranet, portal, commerce, application server and wireless markets, among others."
