Chat has hit the mainstream. In what started as simple 1:1 and group yakking, more and more real communication is taking place in the messaging feed. Chatbots, dating, maps, games, collaboration… the list goes on. As the innovations flow, real-time online communication embeds itself further in our day-to-day.

And it’s mission critical to your business and continues to grow in importance for how your customers talk, buy, learn, love and innovate. You need to out-innovate the competition from Day One and deliver the immersive chat experiences your users crave.

Which brings us to this. Our new eBook will give you a 360-degree view of chat app development, deployment, and scale—and why chat is eating the world. It covers:

  • The current landscape of chat technology: the different flavors of chat, choosing the right technology from what’s available on the market today and a comparison of build vs. buy and hosted vs. open source.
  • How chat is evolving: a view into how chat apps are changing from simple messaging to transform how industries and users communicate.
  • How to ensure you’re at the forefront of innovation: a look at what features and experiences can be delivered to set yourself apart from the rest.
