Collaboration is the word for 2017, and the dominant tool for bringing modern collaboration and communication to your enterprise teams has yet to emerge. Between media darling Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Workplace by Facebook, the coming year is poised to bring a significant settling to this market, and you might find your users clamoring for a new environment as a result.

He's been an industry analyst (including VP and research director at Burton Group) and also worked on enterprise collaboration solutions at Microsoft.
