AWS and Slack combine in strategic partnership

Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Slack have announced a partnership that will deliver enhanced enterprise workforce collaboration. The multi-year strategic partnership will help distributed development teams communicate and become more efficient and agile in managing their AWS resources from inside Slack.

Slack will migrate its voice and video calling to Amazon Chime. Slack is also leveraging AWS’s global infrastructure to support enterprise customers’ rapid adoption of its platform and offer them the ability to choose in which country or region their data is stored. AWS will use Slack to streamline how its teams work together and communicate.

Stewart Butterfield, CEO and co-founder of Slack said: “By integrating AWS services with Slack’s channel-based messaging platform, we’re helping teams easily and seamlessly manage their cloud infrastructure projects and launch cloud-based services without ever leaving the platform.”

Andy Jassy, CEO of AWS added: “AWS and Slack are giving developer teams the ability to collaborate and innovate faster on the front-end with applications.”
