Slack snaps up Atlassian’s Stride and Hipchat Cloud IP

Slack has acquired the intellectual property for Atlassian’s Stride and Hipchat Cloud, which will be discontinued, as part of a partnership between the companies announced today.

As part of the deal – revealed in blog posts from both companies today – Atlassian has made a “small, but symbolically important” equity investment in Slack.

Stride was launched in September last year, a late entrant to the increasingly crowded team communication and collaboration segment.

”Over the past year, however, the market in real-time communications has changed pretty dramatically. And throughout that change, one product has continued to stand out from the others: Slack,” wrote Joff Redfern, Atlassian vice president of product management.

“While we’ve made great early progress with Stride,  and no longer offer our own ,” Redfern added.
