Slackbot Integration with any Database


*Caveat: we think of a “Bot” as a technology that enacts something in a computerized fashion. Regardless of whether it’s using AI, NLP or any other ML. More on that here.

If you’re a developer, you want to build cool stuff. One of the coolest apps out there right now is Slack, so what if you could quickly and easily build workflows to make Slack even more useful for your organization?

SkyGiraffe’s Slackbot offering provides a single REST endpoint that can be parsed within Slack to build workflows (i.e. pulling in data from any enterprise system so users can manage business processes without interrupting their workflows within a Slack conversation).

We’ve not only exposed our REST endpoint, but also open-sourced a prebuilt Slackbot that can generically parse it, making it applicable to any corporate workflow.

This connectivity facilitates access to enterprise data and business functions from SAP, Oracle, Salesforce, ServiceNow, and any other system, through the Slack interface in a completely secure manner. Since SkyGiraffe has solved the backend data access, security, and scalability issues, you no longer need to do all the complex legwork you would usually need to do to make an app or workflow “enterprise-ready.” Now, you can focus more on building all the cool, useful things you can build with the SkyGiraffe and Slack.

Here are some scenarios you might want to adapt:

We’ve open-sourced the code for developers on GitHub. Check it out for all the information you need to get started.
