When a technology succeeds in displacing the technology that previously dominated the market, it is referred to as disruptive. Take, for example, the messaging network Slack, which has over 12 million users globally and has radically altered the practises of many businesses. Emails for direct messaging and even Skype for videoconferencing have been replaced by this business communication tool.
Slack is a cloud-based team communication service created in 2013 by Stewart Butterfield, a Canadian entrepreneur and current CEO. It was created as an internal communication tool at Butterfield’s small company Tiny Speck. By 2015, it had become a tech and media favourite, thanks to its ease of use and exciting in-app features.
