Mattermost and Ask Sage Partner to Enhance Collaboration and Decision Quality for U.S. Public Sector Teams through AI


New Ask Sage integration with Mattermost’s secure collaboration platform enables technical teams to harness AI and chatbot technologies to expedite mission response times 


Palo Alto, Calif. – April 19, 2023 – Mattermost, the leading secure collaboration platform for technical teams, today announced a new integration from Ask Sage to deliver real-time access to generative artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance decision quality, collaboration, and operational productivity. The integration enables government and contractor teams to securely leverage the power of OpenAI and collaborate in a single, seamless interface to accelerate response efforts.

Ask Sage offers rapid data analysis and summarization capabilities to help teams draw mission-critical insights as circumstances evolve. Technical teams using Ask Sage spend less time and effort doing manual research and analysis, allowing them to focus on higher-priority decision-making and strategic tasks.  

As a trusted, secure collaboration platform for the U.S. public sector, Mattermost enables team alignment and productivity for critical operations. Now, with this integration, Mattermost can equip teams to leverage generative AI to streamline processes and increase output, ideal for government teams that analyze large data sets, write code, manage RFPs, or translate and develop intelligence reports. Teams can also leverage Ask Sage’s generative AI with Mattermost’s playbooks to automate and accelerate incident response.

Additionally, users can enhance the accuracy and depth of Ask Sage’s results by uploading relevant data, which is labeled according to classification level, encrypted, and separated from the OpenAI data set. Once uploaded, the data can only be accessed by individuals or teams who need to know via granular access controls within Mattermost to maintain security.

“Every country in the world is in a race to unlock the power of generative AI for gaining speed and decision advantage for their public sector organizations,” said Ian Tien, CEO and co-founder of Mattermost, Inc., “Mattermost’s partnership with Ask Sage gives DevSecOps and innovation organizations across the U.S. Public Sector the transparency, flexibility, and control they need to rapidly develop new AI-enhancements for operational workflows while maintaining security and compliance.” 

“The integration of Mattermost and Ask Sage is a game changer for open source intelligence teams as the ability to rapidly analyze massive datasets and extract actionable insights enables them to outmaneuver adversaries and achieve a tactical advantage,” said Kyle Fox, chief technology officer at SOSi, a public sector technology and services integrator whose portfolio includes the SOSi subsidiary Exovera. “Exovera successfully leveraged this integration to gather and synthesize insights around complex geopolitical and intelligence issues, helping us reduce risk and promote security for government customers in an era of heightened threats.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Mattermost to bring the power of AI-driven insights and decision-making to government teams,” said Nic Chaillan, founder of Ask Sage. “This integration not only enhances collaboration but also empowers teams to make informed decisions quickly and efficiently. By combining Mattermost’s secure collaboration platform with Ask Sage’s AI capabilities, we are revolutionizing the way government teams work together and respond to mission-critical situations.”
