Until last year, when XO Group employees wanted to share information or access it remotely, they usually bypassed IT and simply opened up a personal Dropbox account. While this step allowed them to access files anywhere and collaborate with colleagues, it also decreased corporate security, centralization, and IT control.
Recognizing IT had to find a solution that met business and IT needs, XO Group began researching its options, said Tony Colon, director of IT, in an interview with Internet Evolution. XO Group, formerly The Knot, operates “life stage websites” focused on important periods in a person’s life, such as a wedding (The Knot), home ownership and finances (The Nest), and pregnancy (The Bump).
