Dreamforce 2022: Slack Channel Chief Foresees App In Every Salesforce SI’s Solution


More than a year after the close of Salesforce’s $27.7 billion acquisition of collaboration application Slack, Slack channel chief Richard Hasslacher and his team have been at work helping the subsidiary’s earliest partners gain certifications and develop industry-focused services to bring to market. “It’s fair to say over the next 18 months every SI (systems integrator) and ISV (independent software vendor) solution will have Slack as a part of it,” Hasslacher said. The partners include Accenture, Atrium, Capgemini, Deloitte, IBM, KPMG, NeuraFlash, PwC, Silverline and Slalom, according to the company. Hasslacher said that partners remain an important part of both Slack’s and San Francisco-based front-office software vendor Salesforce’s go-to-market strategy. “Things like … a continuously proliferating set of applications … the ongoing consumerization of IT and what that user experience feels like, the shift from in-office to hybrid and fully distributed.
