Microsoft has acquired Ally.io to improve the employee experience by aligning people’s work with team goals and the company’s mission, the tech giant reports in a blog post. Ally.io is headquartered in Seattle, Washington with a centre in Chennai.
Launched in 2018, Ally.io is an OKR (objectives and key results) company that will join the Microsoft Viva family as part of Microsoft’s employee experience platform (EXP) designed to help companies embrace the new digital work life.
“The OKR category is a fast-growing and emerging space. Ally.io is leading the way as one of the most loved tools on the market. Customers find the Ally.io experience flexible, easy to use with quick time-to-value. They appreciate its broad set of integrations with existing work systems. Since its launch in 2018, Ally.io has been adopted by over 1,000 leading high-tech, manufacturing, financial services and healthcare businesses across more than 80 countries,” said the blog post.
Ally.io will power a new Microsoft Viva module. Viva is an employee experience platform that brings together communications, knowledge, learning, resources and insights – from anywhere you work. Powered by Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams, Viva helps organizations foster a culture of human connection, growth, well-being and success. Today, Viva has four connected modules – Connections, Insights, Topics and Learning – that deliver a holistic experience with intelligent and actionable insights in the flow of work.
