IGATE: Post Acquisition, IGATE Consolidates Multiple Portals to Improve Efficiency
iGATE, a global IT services company with a talent pool of over 27,000 employees, is a dynamic and agile IT services giant. Post acquisition, the company had to manage change and instil synergy amongst diverse sets of people and policies. A common platform for communication and collaboration was important to successfully integrate people and organizational structures. iGATE chose Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 to achieve this. Today SharePoint powers their intranet-iSpace, knowledge management portal-iKen, and the customer collaboration portal, VIVA. All these help employees bond, share ideas, and exchange best practices in real time. With consolidation, iGATE saves costs, reduces IT overheads, and increases its knowledge index by 10 per cent each quarter.
