Good notifications, great third-party add-ons and very stable

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use it as a knowledge management tool for all of our consultants, which are architects.

Pros and Cons

  • "The integration's very good. You still have integration with lots of third party products, and it's very good."
  • "This is kind of by design, however, the lack of control in terms of editing the page to make it look the way you want it to look is an issue. It would be nice if there was more flexibility there."

What other advice do I have?

We don't have a business relationship with Atlassian. We're just customers. We're using the latest version of the solution. This solution is highly recommended. If you're looking for a product in this space, this is the best. We had another really good tool, however, we find Confluence does the same and a whole lot more. I'd say in the knowledge management space, as far as we've been doing our business, and our job is to find tools for organizations, I'm convinced that this is the top product in this space. Overall, I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. My one issue is the search…

A clean and efficient communications platform that is good for large teams

What is our primary use case?

I use Slack primarily for communications. This includes communicating with individuals as well as grouping people into cells to work on specific parts of a project. We don't use the features beyond just the basic communicative side of it.

Pros and Cons

  • "With respect to being a clean and efficient communications platform, I think that it does the job quite well."
  • "I have found it cumbersome to create and set up groups, or channels."

What other advice do I have?

From my perspective, this is a good product and I definitely recommend it. My advice for anybody who is implementing this type of product is to first consider what it is that they want to achieve, and then make the decision about which product to implement based on that. If you're trying to pick between platforms, like Teams versus Slack, I would recommend Slack for a variety of reasons. Even if you are using Teams already, I would suggest using Slack in addition because you can't go wrong. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Easy to use and comes with a good interface, but controlling the communication could be an issue

What is our primary use case?

We use it for communication and collaboration on specific topics.

Pros and Cons

  • "The user interface and the way we can share and search information are the most valuable. It is very easy to use."
  • "The way you want to control the communication could be an issue. It depends on what kind of company you are. We are a public company, and there are some regulations that we need to comply with. Its ease of use can be an issue for a company because anybody can subscribe and use it. There are many competitors that are overlapping. Since Microsoft bought Yammer, it tends to be in the shadow. It is not put in the front from the service perspective."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution if it fits the purpose. It is a great tool, but you need to look at whether it overlaps with other tools. I would rate Yammer a seven out of ten.
