London-based announced that it is the first international collaborative network to deliver complete OpenSAM integration including single sign-on and document and content sharing across applications. OpenSAM (Open Simple AJAX Mashups) is a consortium of software-as-a-service (SaaS) application vendors and a set of AJAX (asynchronous JavaScript and XML) programming recommendations, based on open standards that allow multiple online applications to integrate. Huddle is the first solution to combine social platforms with enterprise collaboration tools in a secure, easy-to-use, network of workspaces that enable companies and their partners to work better together. Through the OpenSAM integration, Huddle users gain access to industry leading Web Applications - iNetWord, EditGrid and Preezo through a single sign-on. Now IT departments can provide employees with the applications they need to collaborative effectively, through a single, easy to use platform. At Office 2.0 will showcase this integration in the OpenSAM Pavilion and an on-stage session on Friday, September 7 at 2:15pm.

"When we launched OpenSAM we wanted to provide IT departments with an effective way of leveraging best-of-breed technology, immediately and cost-effectively," said Tom Snyder, co-Founder of OpenSAM. "Huddle is one of the first online services to make this possible and we plan to continue to bring innovation approaches that provide the flexibility, security and standards that enterprise 2.0 requires."

Key to the OpenSAM integration is the ability for users to leverage diverse online office applications to store documents within a Huddle allowing all documents to participate in the workflow, sharing and other capabilities of the workspace.

"OpenSAM is a great example of a group that is achieving true collaboration - tools and networks working together naturally," said Andy McLoughlin, CTO. "We are really excited to be part of this consortium as we work together to make a more productive enterprise."
