AWS and Slack Join Forces to Deliver the Future of the Enterprise Workplace
AWS and Slack collaborate to deliver tightly integrated, enterprise grade tools as Slack expands its use of AWS
Enterprise customers can rely on Slack’s channel-based messaging solution, combined with AWS’s proven infrastructure and security services, for secure, reliable, and scalable communication. Slack and AWS will also extend product integration and deepen interoperability to help developer teams manage their AWS resources in Slack channels and
AmazonChime infrastructure with Slack Calls: AmazonChime SDK (software development kit) will soon power audio, video, and screen-sharing capabilities in native Slack Calls. By relying on AmazonChime to power its real-time communication, Slack will leverage AWS’s proven infrastructure to deliver high-quality and reliable user experiences while eliminating the cost and complexity of maintaining its own unified communications infrastructure.
- AWS Key Management Service with Slack Enterprise Key Management (EKM): For EKM, Slack leverages AWS’s proven security services, including AWS Key Management Service for distribution and control of cryptographic keys. Designed for security-conscious or regulated enterprise customers who seek increased visibility and control over their data in Slack, over 90 companies are now using the solution to manage their own encryption keys. Enhancements, such as EKM for Slack’s Workflow Builder automation tool were released last month.
- AWS Chatbot integration with Slack: AWS Chatbot is a service that uses an interactive agent to help development teams stay updated, collaborate, and respond more quickly to operational events, security findings, workflows, and other alerts for applications running in AWS accounts. Only recently generally available, AWS Chatbot is already in use by many thousands of teams around the world to improve the application development process. Going forward, the AWS Chatbot service will incorporate AWS’s more than 175 services to give developers the ability to collaborate with their teams to manage all of their cloud-based services without leaving Slack.
AmazonAppFlow integration with Slack: The new AmazonAppFlow integration for Slack enables users to securely transfer data between Slack and AWS services like AmazonSimple Storage Service ( AmazonS3) and AmazonRedshift, simplifying tasks such as analyzing trends in customer engagement from helpdesk requests or measuring sentiment data. In the coming months, AWS and Slack will enhance this capability, enabling customers to transfer data bi-directionally between multiple Slack channels and AWS services in a single flow.
“The future of enterprise software will be driven by the combination of cloud services and workstream collaboration tools,” said
“Together, AWS and Slack are giving developer teams the ability to collaborate and innovate faster on the front end with applications, while giving them the ability to efficiently manage their backend cloud infrastructure,” said
