March 2, 2011 (Kitchener, ON) - - IGLOO Software, a leading provider of social intranet and extranet solutions, today announced that it has been named to the 2011 KMWorld list of "100 Companies that Matter in Knowledge Management."

IGLOO's community platform is a simple solution to an organization's traditional collaboration needs. Uniting content management, collaboration and social networking software in one integrated community suite, IGLOO makes it easier to form networks inside and outside a company's four walls, removing the barriers to information sharing and collaboration.
The 2011 list was formally announced in the March 2011 issue of KMWorld Magazine and marked IGLOO′s first placement within the report. Past winners range from emerging companies to technology giants, such as EMC, Google, IBM, Microsoft and SAP.
″Most content management platforms do a poor job of socializing content, while most social tools do a poor job of managing content,″ said Dan Latendre, CEO of IGLOO Software. "IGLOO is different in that it was designed to not only allow you to share content online, but to add context and value to that content. After all, socializing content is the only way to convert it to knowledge.″
″IGLOO′s inclusion on the list is based on the breadth and impact of its innovations," said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld′s Editor-in-Chief. ″By placing control of the community with the business user, IGLOO is putting innovative social collaboration tools within the reach of every business, from small to midsize companies all the way to individual departments and business units within the enterprise.″
