Swisscom and Igloo Software Partner to Bring Cloud Intranets to Europe

Igloo Software, a cloud intranet provider, today announced a strategic partnership and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Switzerland’s largest telecommunications provider, Swisscom, to private-label its social intranet solution.

Under the terms of the agreement, Swisscom has the non-exclusive right to host and distribute Igloo in Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. Through its state-of-the-art hosting facility in Switzerland and dedicated services team, customers have access to a wealth of locally-based product knowledge and technical support to suit their requirements.

Igloo’s cloud intranet platform is designed to enable complete control over the apps you use, and the information architecture of the intranet, which in turn affects the overall look and feel. For end customers, it means a self-customizable solution that makes it easy to have a collaborative experience that fits how you work; without the need to hire a team of solution architects and developers. For partners, it means access to a white-label platform to build, deploy, and manage customized solutions.

Swisscom has launched the cloud intranet solution under the trademark Dynamic Intranet.

Andrew Dixon, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Operations, Igloo Software
“This is a significant milestone in the expansion of our OEM partner strategy, and we will continue to pursue strategic relationships with managed service providers that expand our reach into new verticals and geographies. Through the cooperation with Swisscom, we are now able to provide cloud intranet solutions to our customers in Europe, from a data center in Europe.”

20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world.

Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits. Some companies will always have security concerns about storing data in the cloud and certain high-transaction applications will always be better suited for on-premises storage. Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.
