Not all enterprises are comfortable using cloud hosted apps. We have been building enterprise software for more than a decade and we understand that every organization has their own needs and we want to give you as broad a range of options as possible.
That's why we've created Streaming It Out Loud Enterprise, which allows you to host Streaming It Out Loud wherever you would like - behind your firewall, in a private cloud or anywhere you’d like. You will need help from your IT folks to deploy it. It runs as a website so you'll need folks who have access to servers in order to install and run it. Or you (or we on your behalf) can spin up a new instance on Windows Azure that is owned and managed by you, and we can install Streaming It Out Loud for you.
You do not need to have 3rd Party Apps enabled for the Enterprise version of Streaming It Out Loud to be deployed at your organization.
All of your network's content still lives in Yammer and will not be affected -- the Streaming It Out Loud app is just a different way of sharing all that great content. Think of it as a different dust jacket on a book -- the book's content doesn't change just the picture on the front.
Your Enterprise license covers all your users, whether you have 5000 or 50,000 or 150,0000 employees - that's why the pricing model is the way it is, it's literally fractions of a penny per person. Use Streaming It Out Loud Enterprise as much as you’d like, as often as you’d like. We think the one time 'all you can eat' model is better than the pay-per-user to ensure maximum adoption and engagement of your network. The user experience is intuitive and can be used on a wide range of devices. We want your network to reach as many employees as possible, and for you to reap the benefits of an enterprise social network as much and more as we have inside our own company.
When you purchase Streaming It Ot Loud, your IT folks will receive instructions on how to download the bits, with full instructions on how to install. We offer support with the installation. And we’ll help make the user experience as welcoming as possible with basic customization of the landing page and app directory page that your people will use to get to the application.
The software package of Streaming It Out Loud is built on .NET 4.5, and you can deploy it to your own Windows Server 2008 or 2012 servers either hosted on premises (behind your firewall), or even an Azure instance that you have full control over. We recommend Azure if you are going to be hosting events off site (for instance, at hotels or if you have a mobile workforce) where it might be difficult to login to your corporate network. Many enterprises have already bought Azure usage as part of their Enterprise Agreements with Microsoft and Streaming It Out Loud is a great way to make use of that. If you prefer, we can also deploy or install the app for you. In addition, you'll need to have SSL certification for the domain from which you wish to run Streaming It Out Loud, this is a requirement from Yammer as well as a best practice. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
Social networks are essential to learning. If you'd like to run Streaming It Out Loud on your campus or in your non-profit organization, we'll work with you to find a model that fits your budget (possibly even if your budget is non-existent ;))
We offer a customized upgrade cycle (for example quarterly) as well as annual maintenance and support. If your Streaming It Out Loud application is hosted in Azure, we can upgrade the app without any disruption or downtime to your employees. We'll work with you to figure out what works best for you.
All licensing fees are in US Dollars.
