Flexible best-of-breed technology that works together

The most basic choice in selecting a software for your business is not between one brand or another, but between types of software, either best-of-breed or fully integrated enterprise solutions. A simple way to define the best-of-breed is that it is a leading product or software tool in a particular market segment. Best-of-breed focuses on providing the best features and functions for one component in the value chain, whether accounting, sales, marketing, HR or legal.

The Challenge

Traditionally, organizations have relied on a single, legacy suite for their workplace technology stack. This approach poses a number of challenges across an organization including:

  • Employees are unable to collaborate efficiently and waste time navigating complex systems to identify and access content critical to their jobs
  • As employees seek out additional technology to make them more productive, IT struggles to manage the impacts of shadow IT, including duplicative tools and security gaps
  • IT leaders are forced to allocate resources to manage an increasing number of processes and technologies for both internal and external transactions

The Solution

As the workplace environment intensifies, organizations are increasingly looking to IT as a business enabler. Outpacing competitors, retaining talent, and supporting a distributed workforce all while thwarting off attacks requires a best-of-breed approach to workplace technology. The category leaders across workplace technology solutions - Okta, Box, Slack, and Zoom - have partnered to enable organizations to avoid the pitfalls of legacy suites and improve productivity with best-of-breed solutions.
