Regardless of how it's described, Slack has become nearly every industry's go-to solution for managing team communication and file sharing in one place.

what is slack?

As a company, Slack has been around since 2012. But they didn't start getting global attention until they released their beta in August 2013 (just seven months later). They didn't call it a beta release, for fear of positioning their software as an unreliable newbie.
