About Onna

    Our vision

    Today, knowledge workers collaborate, communicate, and share content through a collection of tools that is growing faster than ever. As the digital workplace rapidly evolves, data proliferates, content sprawls, and information becomes fragmented.

    Our goal is to help companies simplify how they access, manage, and use data from their digital workplace tools. With Onna, companies can mitigate the risks of data sprawl and unlock innovation opportunities.
