Yammer’s $85 million fund raising round this week provides further validation that enterprise social collaboration tools are gaining more acceptance as the next evolution of employee intranet. Businesses both small and large are quickly deploying these internal social networks. But what if you want Yammer on-premise? Like Chatter, they only offer a SaaS version of the software.
Yammer On-Premise? Think long and hard!
The benefits are clear – employees are more connected, they quickly and easily share any size files, information flows at hyperspeed, employees are always up-to-date and in-the-loop, and as a result meaningful collaboration becomes effortless. Employees are drawn to these social networks and prefer to communicate this way.
But what happens when your IT department puts the kibosh on Yammer or you want to bring yammer on-premise? Many company security policies require sensitive discussions and files remain on-premise behind the company firewall. Others are only open to the cloud if secured on dedicated servers or “private clouds”. Yammer’s shared cloud SaaS offering fails to satisfy these security requirements, so is not an option.
Companies like MangoApps are filling the void here. MangoApps offers private, secure enterprise social networks & Team Collaboration software (like Yammer), but also offers private cloud and on-premise deployment options (not offered by Yammer) as part of its MangoApps Enterprise Edition. So now you can essentially get Yammer On-Premise.
Gartner recently featured MangoApps at its annual Symposium event in Orlando last October. In the 4 months since the event, MangoApps has over 70 large enterprise customers on trials and pilots of MangoApps Enterprise Edition (Yammer On-Premise). The customer chooses whether they prefer a private cloud or on-premise deployment.
Some of the other extras with MangoApps intranet collaboration software includes a choice of either annual or monthly subscription. Large organizations are also offered unlimited enterprise wide licenses. Additional security measures include AD & LDAP and more 3rd party integrations, and the ability to disable or wipeout company content on lost or stolen mobile devices.
Rest assured. Whatever your security policies require, there’s a solution for you when you want Yammer On-Premise.
