Mattermost

Software developers are big enthusiasts of a ChatOps software, such as Mattermost, as it allows for direct collaboration without unnecessarily relying on email to get projects done. That goes for any teams that require collaboration. Some scenarios where Mattermost may not work as well would be teams that are in different geographic locations, such as teammates in India. Due to the time difference, collaboration would be harder, and an application like Mattermost may not have that much benefit.

Nextcloud

Nextcloud is well suited in any collaboration scenario where users wants to share comments and resources as well as organize events or work together.
It is also very well suited for non-profit organizations as it is free to use and very simple even for non-tech users.
I can't imagine scenarios where it might not be appropriate as running requirements are minimal (php, mysql) so even a single user could find benefit to use it as an alternative for basic icloud or gmail use (files with desktop and mobile clients, calendar and address book).

Pros

Mattermost

  • It's open-source! So our devs could adequate the tool to our necessities.
  • It works particularly well in every navigator.
  • It also works well in mobile phones, even when you choose not to install the mobile app (this is a BIG plus).

Nextcloud

  • File sharing (internal, public or federated).
  • One software, many activities (files, address book, calendar, chat, edit, email) ...
  • Groupware, sharing between users or groups is really easy and finely controlled.
  • Integrations and many apps.

  • Base pricing is competitive with Slack, but enterprise features come at a hefty price

It's an extremely easy to use software, and I would recommend it to every company that is growing. I think they could improve their notification system, as it gets a little spammy sometimes and important notifications get lost. Also needs to improve the number of private chats that you are allowed to create.

Direct support is only available for the paid version, but there is a very active community that provides a considerable amount of information.

I never needed support as everything always worked fine. The documentation on Nextcloud website is extensive and clear. The community is very active on the forum and should support you if you don't already find what you are looking for.

Alternatives Considered

Mattermost

Slack is excellent and has many of the same features as Mattermost. However, the cost if you have a larger group can be prohibitive. Mattermost is a better ROI per user, in our opinion. It also allows us to host it ourselves, which is more desirable for management by our MIS department.

Nextcloud

Even excluding the budget and privacy concerns, we selected Nextcloud for its simplicity of use and the UI is very clear.
It just does what it is supposed to do.
  • No license.
  • Much, much ease of use.
  • Not opening several windows.
  • No un-useful services.
  • No automatic update.
  • Control over data.
  • Open-source software.
  • Integrations.
