Intranet provider Igloo Software has joined the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance and added support for various services within Microsoft’s Office 365 productivity suite.
One of the first graduates from the Microsoft BizSpark program in 2011 and now a Gold Certified Partner, Igloo has expanded its technology to move beyond back-end integration with Microsoft, to touch points with end users via Office 365.
“It’s no longer enough to have an antiquated intranet no one uses or a place to only share files internally; a modern intranet has to connect people, information and processes to meet the needs of a modern workplace,” said Dan Latendre, CEO of Igloo Software. “At Igloo, we want to make the intranet experience as engaging as possible, bringing together the key tools and applications people use every day to effectively connect and collaborate with their colleagues.”
Igloo’s intranet now supports Microsoft Skype for Business, Yammer, OneDrive, SharePoint, Outlook and Office 365 calendars. This allows employees to keep files and related conversations in one place, while using trusted applications like Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.
Igloo Integrations ensure organizations avoid lengthy and expensive deployments by making use of a flexible framework, consisting of an open API, support for OAuth 2.0, and an Integrations Library stored in the Microsoft Azure cloud.
“Igloo offers our joint customers a platform to easily connect and collaborate using key Office tools and applications.” said Rob Howard, director of Microsoft’s Office 365 ecosystem. “We are also delighted to welcome Igloo into the Enterprise Cloud Alliance, which was formed to promote and support partners providing integrations and extensions to existing Microsoft products.”
