Off course Slack is market leader in terms team collaboration and Chat but here are the list of 4 open source alternatives to Slack for team collaboration and Chat.

Slack offers a lot of IRC-like features: persistent chat rooms (channels) organized by topic, as well as private groups and direct messaging (again, historically based on IRC).[14] All content inside Slack is searchable, including files, conversations, and people. Slack integrates with a large number of third-party services and supports community-built integrations. Major integrations include services such as Google Drive, Trello, Dropbox, Box, Heroku, Crashlytics, GitHub, Runscope and Zendesk. In December 2015, Slack announced their app directory, consisting of over 150 integrations that users can install.[21] Users can add emoji buttons to their messages, which other users can then click on to express their reactions to messages.

Internet Relay Chat, or IRC, is a protocol which dates back to the late 1980s. Since it's been around so long, there are numerous open source implementations on both the client and the server side.
Coming with its age, however, are numerous drawbacks. It lacks many features one might expect in a modern chat client, from security to identity management to even just being able to easily transmit non-text components, like images, files, or emoticons (the latter might be seen as a plus to some, however). Some features have been implemented after-the-fact through bot services, including nickname management, logging, and other features, but these vary from server to server.
IRC does still have some things going for it, though. It's nearly universal, and clients are available for basically every platform out there. Though the command-driven interface isn't necessarily intuitive for beginners, many clients re-implement commands through a GUI. And if you're doing upstream open source development, there's a good chance you're already hanging out in IRC anyway, so adding a team server might be a path of least resistance.

What corporate management say about us?

Rajesh is very knowledgeable instructor he has a good exposure on real time issue and case studies he is experienced in large environment issue and challenges. I really liked how Rajesh used a lot of examples so that concepts were more easily understood, I like the examples that Rajesh give to help us remember things…they are usually real scenario, real life problems that we encounter frequently. <br /> He is well organised in terms of study materiel that you can refer anytime after you complete your course. His blogs are crisp and has to the point key content that he discussed during session to remember if you refer them remotely.
