IBM Picks ‘Slack’ to Power its Communications Among 3,50,000 Employees

IBM adopts 'Slack' for its 3,50,000 customers

IBM has picked ‘Slack’ a cloud-based proprietary instant messaging platform to power its chat communications companywide and will be moving all its 3,50,000 customers to the service.

“Going wall to wall in IBM – it’s basically the maximum scale that there is, so we now know that Slack will work for literally the largest organizations in the world,” Business Insider quoted Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield recently.

IBM has apparently actually been using Slack since 2014, but it is now officially adopting Slack as the main communication tool internally as part of a larger effort to modernize the company itself.
