2017 has been a big year for Igloo and our customers with the launch of our Digital Workplace Solutions portfolio designed to overcome some of today’s most common business challenges. But it’s not enough – we need to keep pushing forward. Not only in partnership with our customers but with our key technology partners like Microsoft.
Today at ICE ’17 we welcomed Jason Brommet from Microsoft on stage to talk about the ways Igloo and Microsoft are helping customers achieve new levels of productivity and innovation throughout their digital transformation journey.
Together we announced a new phase in our strategic partnership that enables Igloo to bring innovative digital workplace solutions to market – all fueled by innovation on Microsoft platforms. Igloo will leverage Microsoft technologies for secure hosting, business intelligence, and productivity integrations. Together, we will support digital transformation to address challenges in the modern workplace.
Igloo has selected Microsoft Azure as its strategic cloud hosting partner.
New Igloo customers will be able to satisfy U.S. data residency requirements and benefit from Azure’s compliance, security and privacy leadership. And as Igloo continues to grow, global Azure locations will help us to more easily support digital transformation around the world.
We will work with existing Igloo customers who wish to move to Azure in the coming months, building a roadmap for seamless migration. If you have questions today, be sure to speak with your Customer Success representative.
Reinvent productivity in Igloo with Microsoft SharePoint, Group Calendars and Teams.
Productivity is not bound to one application – it must leverage the cumulative knowledge of you and your entire organization. Our integrations with Microsoft’s Office 365, the industry’s most advanced productivity suite, are evolving. We’ll be introducing federated search for SharePoint Online and 2013 On-Premise and will soon be supporting Group Calendars and Microsoft Teams. Our goal is to create a more seamless customer experience that enables Igloo customers to get more done.
Use OData and Power BI for data-driven decisions.
Igloo is building a collection of reports that can be used with Power BI for enhanced analytics and data visualization. Our support for OData and Power BI will provide a more wholistic understanding of your digital workplace by combining insights from Igloo with solutions across your ecosystem.
We’ll continue to share updates on our partnership with Microsoft as we drive toward our shared vision of helping every employee in every organization achieve more.
