Founded in 2007, Datto is the world’s leading provider of cloud-based software and technology solutions purpose-built for delivery by managed service providers (MSPs). Since its inception, the company has grown to over 1,700 employees spread across 20+ global office locations.
In late 2018, Datto CEO Tim Weller recognized that the business needed to find and implement a new intranet system that would become employees’ one-stop shop for all things Datto. Datto employees found their legacy intranet hard to navigate, and often turned to colleagues when they needed answers to simple questions or access to routine documents. This one-off method led to employees’ loss of productivity and frustration. Datto’s legacy intranet followed the traditional method of requiring VPN access which created employee login friction. It was clear that the organization needed a solution that is easily accessible, easy to find information, and streamlined governance.
With executive support, a cross-departmental governance team was assembled with people from marketing, operations, sales, project management, product development, engineering, IT, and human resources to ensure that a wide array of perspectives were taken into account during the vendor evaluation process. The goal was not to choose a vendor based on function/features, but to understand the intranet landscape, best practices, and determine whether the providers would fit Datto’s needs.
