From Email to Slack: Organizing & Managing the Corporate Spaghetti Bowl of Employee Communications with Keith Laska

Keith Laska is the CEO of Hanzo, co-founder and partner of EUX, and an advisor at Lilt. He joins Vince Walden to discuss Hanzo’s approach to cloud computing enterprise communications.


Hanzo is dedicated to helping legal and compliance teams save billions of dollars in litigation costs by supplying them with critical applications to regain control of their corporate data. They offer legal hold software for companies struggling with enterprise collaboration tools. Their mission is to make the complex simple when it comes to managing dynamic data. Collaboration tools like Slack and Microsoft Teams are challenging for legal and compliance teams to perform audit trails related to communication, due to their complex and unstructured nature. Emails, on the other hand, have clear and direct pathways of communication.


Applications that enable work-from-home environments are being adopted at an aggressive pace, so much so that the CEO of Slack has publicly stated that the pandemic has accelerated the anticipated evolution from emails to messaging apps by at least 18 months. Keith predicts that 30-40% of the working US population will be working remotely post-COVID, a huge jump from the previous 18%. Additionally, he believes that over the next few years, companies will be able to proactively identify problems before they occur, transforming data management into insight management.
