2016 - Slack deeply integrates with Salesforce


Enterprise chat app Slack is adding a "deep product partnership" with Salesforce - an integration that will make it much easier for businesses to share data across the two platforms, specifically around employee conversations and sales account information. The Salesforce integration will work essentially like many of those other Slack integraions - with a backslash and keyword “Salesforce” to bring data into the conversation. This partnership can also mean that Salesforce would like to acquite the collaboration service. The company had big ambitions for its own messaging app, Chatter, but it hasn't become very popular so far. Recall that according to rumors Microsoft is also interested in acquiring Slack.
