Mattermost: An Open Source Communication Platform Designed for the Enterprise

An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief

There is a direct relationship between an enterprise development team’s ability to communicate and its effectiveness in delivering value to the organization. If communication is inefficient, the development process will be as well — and the team will deliver less value to the organization. And as development becomes a team sport, the ability to communicate across the enterprise becomes a critical capability — which is why it’s so surprising that it remains such a challenge.

Mattermost believes that the reason is that communication and messaging platforms just haven’t been built with the enterprise in mind. The company’s solution is an open source platform with an enterprise edition the provides the scale and security that enterprises need to drive global adoption.

Its open source model combined with a modern and clean user interface helps drive user adoption. At the same time, the company believes its commitment to data sovereignty (organizations deploy it on private servers), enterprise-class security, extensive and extensible integrations to other management and communication platforms, and its ability to operate at enterprise scale make it the best of all worlds for organizations looking to create a standardized, global communications platform.
