Ally.io, a leading OKR (objectives and key results) company, will join the Microsoft Viva family as part of its employee experience platform (EXP) designed to help companies embrace the new digital work life, Microsoft said.

The financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

The OKR category is a fast-growing and emerging space and Ally.io is leading the way as one of the most loved tools on the market.

Ally.io has been used by over 1,000 leading high-tech, manufacturing, financial services and healthcare businesses across more than 80 countries.

“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,” said the US-based tech giant.

“We’ll be investing to bring Ally.io into the Microsoft cloud, evolve the existing integrations with Microsoft Teams, and weave Ally.io into Viva, Office, Power BI and the broader set of Microsoft 365 apps and services,” Microsoft said.
