IT sees chat's importance, concerned about security of other offerings

Microsoft Teams has been setting itself up for a major fight with Slack, the team chat app that has dubbed itself the fastest-growing enterprise service in history.

A new survey by Spiceworks of 448 IT professionals found that 20 percent of organizations plan to have Teams in place within the next two years, helping it capture the #2 spot work messaging applications — behind only Skype for Business, which is expected to continue to grow.

Currently, Google Hangouts is used by 16 percent of respondents and Slack by 13 percent.
