San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 6, 2007
"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, Huddle.net CTO. "We are really excited to be part of this consortium as we work together to make a more productive enterprise."
OpenSAM was founded by ShareMethods.com and iNetWord.com in September of 2006 when their engineers realized the standards based techniques they were invoking could, would, and should be used to integrate most applications. OpenSAM is run by a consortium of leading Web 2.0 application vendors and integrators. OpenSAM is open to everyone. OpenSAM is the only initiative designed to connect all platforms, suites, and applications, rather than a chosen few.
