Great for project collaborations, and for companies with data retention compliancy requirements

What is our primary use case?

We're a tech services company and have numerous use cases for this solution, whether it be for meetings and chat, for collaborations, sharing files, document libraries, collaborating on Word documents and Excel. We use the solution every day, almost as much as we use email. We're partners with Microsoft and I'm the company delivery practice director.

Pros and Cons

  • "Message and chat retention is a valuable feature."
  • "Technical support could be improved."

What other advice do I have?

The transition to this solution is very quick so don't hesitate to give it a go, particularly for anyone already using Microsoft products. If they're using Google or Slack, it depends how they want to consolidate it. The adaptation to this solution is very quick, clients love it and can easily see the power of it. It's a cloud collaboration piece and integrates with products. I would rate this solution a nine out of 10.

Easy to use and set up, includes Wiki software, the support is good, but the need better third-party integration

What is our primary use case?

In multiple organizations, we have been using Atlassian Confluence as a knowledge base, and for development. Our developers use it alongside Jira.

Pros and Cons

  • "What I like the most is the Wiki software that comes with Atlassian Confluence."
  • "I would like to see integration with Slack."

What other advice do I have?

It really depends on what ecosystem they invest in and what they're looking for. You have to look at the use case and if you already have an application in your ecosystem which is fit for purpose, you have to ask yourself, why you want to go out and pay for another product? I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
