Salesforce Closes Slack Technologies Purchase Deal

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, Salesforce.com (CRM) has closed its $27.7B purchase of Slack Technologies Inc, allowing Slack’s workplace app to become popular for collaborations within and between companies. The U.S. antitrust regulators cleared the deal this week, posing a stronger challenge to Microsoft Corp, the top workplace software provider whose Teams app is competing with Slack for market dominance.

The collaboration is expected to connect both the joint customers to smooth out common business deals, also reducing the complexity of using hundreds of different cloud-based apps that have crept into workplaces, Salesforce President Bret Taylor and Slack Chief Executive Stewart Butterfield said in an interview.

“What customers want is interoperability. They don’t want to have to make hard choices. We’ll integrate with everyone – Microsoft and Salesforce, of course, but also ServiceNow and Workday, and more or less anyone you can think of,” stated Slack Chief Executive Stewart Butterfield
