IGLOO Software announced today that the company has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Niche quadrant of the Social Software in the Workplace and Externally Facing Social Software reports. IGLOO was one of 22 and 18 vendors respectively to appear in the reports.
The Gartner reports help to advise business executives and IT leaders who are seeking information and direction on investments in social technologies. The Magic Quadrant for Social Software in the Workplace consists of products that support internal information sharing, project coordination and collaboration. The Magic Quadrant for Externally Facing Social Software consists of products that support external teaming and networking where most participants reside outside the organization.
“We consider our positioning in the Magic Quadrant confirmation of our strategy to focus exclusively on a 100% cloud solution to enable modern business collaboration,” said Dan Latendre, CEO of IGLOO Software. “This unique approach provides a highly flexible and agile solution that can only be achieved with a pure SaaS (Software as a Service) model.”
