Last week the professional collaboration tool Slack announced that it is acquiring the workplace chat tools HipChat and Stride from the software company Atlassian. The plan is to discontinue HipChat and Stride, and migrate their users to Slack. Apart of all the migration questions that users of HipChat and Stride are now bothering, there are even bigger problems for enterprises with the self-hosted version of HipChat:

  1. Enterprises need an alternative product. Slack is a cloud service from the USA and will not meet their data protection and security requirements.

  2. HipChat will not be further developed. That means there will be no updates to solve bugs and to protect against security issues and similar threats.

Many enterprises are now looking for an alternative to the self-hosted HipChat solution that can be hosted in their own data centers or on-premise servers.

Teamwire offers a great alternative especially for customers with the self-hosted HipChat solution. Teamwire's leading enterprise messaging app is available as an on-premise solution that can be hosted in own data centers or servers:
