Why Uber switched from Slack to Mattermost for enterprise collaboration?
Uber needed an enterprise messaging solution that could scale to meet its needs: massive collaboration from tens of thousands of concurrent users across web, PC and phones, plus extensive workflow integration and automation, all with zero downtime. Slack couldn’t scale. Other messaging platforms weren’t secure. Ultimately, Uber created its own solution, “uChat”, using Mattermost as the open source platform to achieve its objectives.
