Slack is a cloud-based team collaboration tool founded by Stewart Butterfield. Slack finds a growing popularity with development, maintenance and DevOps teams due to the fact that it is easy to integrate with all kinds of tooling via the simple webhook methods provided by the slack team. This gives the power to develop simple applications that will send messages to a Slack channel where also humans are discussing daily business.
As an example, Oracle provides a standard integration from the Oracle Developer Cloud into the slack webhooks. This provides the option to push messages to the Slack channel from your DevOps team which contain information about, for example, builds, deployments, Git pushes, Merge Requests and others.
Having the option to integrate the Oracle Developer Cloud Service with Slack provides a great opportunity to engage your DevOps team in an always-on manner. As members will be able to see on the Slack website and on the Slack App on their mobile phones what is happening and directly discuss between each other it makes live much more easy and work much more interactive.
