Mattermost wins ‘best innovation in communication and messaging’ in DeveloperWeek DEVIES Awards

It’s with great pride we announce Mattermost has won the 11th annual DEVIES Award for Best Innovation in Communication and Messaging. The award was presented on February 15 during DeveloperWeek 2023. The Mattermost platform distinguished itself as the most effective collaboration platform for developer and engineering teams.

Collaboration purpose-built for technical teams

The engagement and productivity of developer, technical, and operations teams can have a direct impact on organizational efficiencies and revenue streams. To work most effectively, developers and operators need more than a general-purpose communication tool. Instead, they require a single, focused platform where they can communicate, collaborate on projects, track processes and statuses, and accelerate and automate workflows.

The Mattermost secure collaboration platform delivers that functionality and more. The solution replaces the patchwork of communication tools that hamper many organizations. It consolidates essential capabilities for team messaging, audio and screen share, project management, and incident response into a single, unified platform to optimize productivity and effectiveness.

Mattermost isn’t a general-purpose chat tool. Rather, it’s a specialized environment for developer teams, providing contextualized communication channels, smooth tool integrations, and automated playbooks and workflows.

It’s also highly secure. The solution gives enterprises complete control over their data through the ability to self-host on private servers. The on-prem software and the communication it enables are contained in a secure environment, with tightly controlled permissions and data access. Teams can retain content for data governance and project retrospectives.

And, the platform is open source, allowing the software to be tailored to meet unique security and operational needs. Mattermost co-builds with more than 4,000 project contributors who have provided some 30,000 code improvements toward a shared product vision.

Awards by developers, for developers 

The DEVIES Awards are the definitive recognition for the developer, software engineering, and IT industry, celebrating outstanding design, engineering, and innovation in developer and engineering technology.

The awards honor technologies that lead their categories in innovation, have attracted attention and adoption in the industry, and are highly regarded by the global developer and engineering community. The judging panel includes dozens of executive leaders and development experts from throughout the software industry.

The award was presented to Mattermost in a gala ceremony at the Oakland Marriott City Center as part of the DeveloperWeek 2023 Conference and Expo.

The largest annual developer conference and event series, DeveloperWeek brought together more than 8,000 developers, engineers, software architects, managers, and executives from more than 70 countries. Attendees benefited from technical talks, workshops, a hackathon, and a tech hiring expo. They also gained insights into the latest in developer languages, technologies, and tools – including the award-winning Mattermost collaboration platform.
