Hi [[ session.user.profile.firstName ]]

Panel Session: Battle for Enterprise Collaboration - Teams vs. Spark vs. Slack

The world of communications and collaboration is transforming drastically. Rather than disjointed voice, video, IM, and document sharing tools, companies are moving toward team collaboration--Microsoft Teams, Cisco Spark, Slack, for the most part, in addition to RingCentral Glip, Avaya Equinox, and others.

The big question: Which solution is the best for each company's requirements? We will cover technology features, architecture, user interface, and costs. And, we'll explore how your decision will affect a company's infrastructure, security, governance, and application strategies moving forward?

This panel will discuss and debate the various options for enterprise collaboration, with a focus on Teams, Spark, and Slack.
