Incentive Provides NATO Employees with Private Social Intranet

Private cloud provider keeps crucial information safe

Incentive, a private social intranet service that protects an organization’s information while improving productivity, today announced that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has signed a three year agreement deploying Incentive’s software. To start, Incentive will be used by close to 1,500 NATO employees around the globe, with plans to expand it reaching up to 10,000 employees.

As the pendulum is swinging back toward private and more secure systems, Incentive is responding by offering a private and social intranet that keeps information gathering and sharing behind an organization’s firewall. That makes it the most effective way to build a more productive and collaborative work environment.

“Most IT departments would never post valuable intellectual assets or confidential data on loosely controlled public services,” said Rickard Hansson, CEO of Incentive. “By adopting private social intranet solution, NATO can enjoy the benefits of controlled and improved collaboration and IT elasticity, without increasing their exposing business critical data.”

A recent study from technology consultancy Compuware APM reports that 75 percent of IT professionals fear that the loss of control could prevent them from fully optimizing their application and reduce their return on investment from the cloud. And 73 percent of businesses believe their cloud providers might be hiding infrastructure or platform-level problems that impact on performance.

Incentive is an all-in-one, downloadable software suite with wikis, blogs, and apps that is hosted securely behind a firewall or in a company’s private cloud. A Google-like search box lets organizations identify valuable knowledge centers within the company, organize groups, projects, subjects, and departments and share activity streams for better and richer engagement with source experts within a company. Even employees at Incentive don't have access to the critical business data that its customers manage with their service, which makes it the perfect tool not only for businesses but also for government bodies with high demands for privacy and security.

About Incentive

Incentive is a private social intranet for SMBs that integrates a company’s formal knowledge with their people’s informal knowledge. Every aspect of their business is available in one, secure place, and accessible by everyone in the organization. On average, employees spend an entire day per week looking for information. Using Incentive’s social intranet means that all knowledge about a company, shared by the employees of the business, stays within the company and resides in one place. That means less time is wasted looking for information and more time is gained to get work done. The company has headquarters in Malmo, Sweden and Los Angeles, CA.
