For anyone dealing with SaaS companies, I believe that for background and understanding, you should have a subscription to Ben Thompson's newsletter "Stratechery".

His take is NOT the stock market/investment (in fact, he does not invest in individual companies to avoid perception of bias) but from understanding the environment.

He's been talking about slack for a long time.
A list of various articles are here: https://stratechery.com/?s=slack
Most of those require a subscription, but he has a weekly public newsletter.
Here are a couple that touch on slack:

https://stratechery.com/2016/chat-and-the-consumerization-of... (This one compares approach of Slack and MS Teams - he also revisits at the end of 2018 in the subscriber email).

Anyway, if you are considering investing in Slack, Ben's take is something you should read.
