This IDC Market Note sheds light into the acquisition of Slack by Salesforce from a Future of Work perspective. This document provides insight into the value proposition of the combined company and its implications for customers.
"To survive and thrive in the new digital economy, the world of work needs to be radically transformed. Hierarchies and company siloes need to give way to flatter and connected organizations, and ultimately agile ways of working," said Angela Salmeron, IDC's European Future of Work Lead. "For those that fear or resist change, Salesforce's acquisition of Slack is meaningless. For those that look for business transformation, partner ecosystems, and agility, this deal can bring vision, empowerment, and a way to do things differently."
