Slack launches enterprise-grade solution, incorporates SAP bots


Collaboration software provider Slack has launched a new enterprise-grade product designed to create communications structures similar to its original product, but with the controls and integrations that large companies require.

Slack Enterprise Grid offers unlimited workspaces for teams, a single point of visibility for administrators with workspace-based permissions, the ability to create shared channels between workspaces for cross-functional collaboration, and a unified infrastructure across a whole organisation.

The new solution offers over 900 integrations to established tech products such as Salesforce, IBM, Box, Adobe and GSuite, as well as emerging products such as CareerLark and Marker.

Slack has also partnered with SAP on a portfolio of integrations across the HANA Cloud Platform, SuccessFactors and Concur.

“The bots will bring real-time reporting and feedback on performance goals, message-based expense and travel management, and options for running chatops development workflows in Slack,” an announcement by the company said.

The Enterprise Grid product has already been rolled out by companies such as IBM, PayPal and CapitalOne.

“Whether physical or digital, our teams expect workspaces that empower them to communicate efficiently, connect and ideate easily, and build new products quickly  –  wherever they are  –  and Slack is a great example of how they want to work,” says Jennifer Manry, vice president of workforce technology at Capital One.

“With Enterprise Grid, Slack has preserved the sense of community, interactivity, and humanity of the workspace that our teams love, with the administrative capabilities we need as a larger enterprise.”
