Intranets & Intranet-wares have become a central junction/platform for implementing the organization’s specific work culture like computing, communication and collaboration. In order to ensure smooth and effective communication, computing and collaboration among employees, intranets play an important role. For vertical and horizontal management, we use intranet-wares for directing, reporting, collaborating, socializing, communicating and meeting or discussing the professional and social issues. Today, cloud-based computing, communication, and collaboration have created new frontiers and emerging paradigms towards re-engineering of work cultures in the organizations. In order to enhance the performance with extended features, next-generation computing, communication, and collaboration the intranet needs redesign and migration strategy over alternative technology platforms. This research paper tries to answer the research questions that how an alternative technology strategy or pathway can be explored for enhancing the performance and extending the features of the exiting designs of educational Intranets. Further; how an on-premise intranet can be migrated over cloud platforms with enhanced performance and extended/add-on features. After analysis of collected facts, understanding the issues, challenges and limitations of the existing state of art intranets, a strong need for performance enhancement and add on features was observed for Intranets. The study deeply investigated and analyzed the issues, challenges and limitations i.e. features and performances of the current state of the art of the intranets in general and on-premise Intranet of AMU in specific. Finally, an Intranet Migration Strategy Model over Hybrid Cloud was designed and developed using SaaS (i.e. AMU CloudNet). In this study, the Interact Intranet was used for designing and demonstrating the functional prototype of intranet show that how computing, communication and collaboration services can be enhanced with anytime, anywhere and boundary-less access.
