What is the Enterprise Solution?

There are many situations where it is beneficial to create a federation of myObservatory users who share a common endeavor or discipline. In this case myObservatory can provide an Enterprise Solution to an intermediary organization, which manages its own individual accounts within the myObservatory system. This system, including basic setup, applying your own logos, style customizations, and helping you with launch support are provided through a one-time setup fee of $3,000.00. In some cases you may need customizations beyond the basic initial setup, including custom development of new tools; in these cases, an itemized budget for Non-Renewable Engineering (NRE) costs is based on the scope of the work needed to complete the customizations. These are the initial setup costs to an Enterprise Solution client; once a customized Enterprise Solution has been created, the intermediary organization purchases end user licenses at wholesale and sells these individual private label subscriptions to their constituency. The wholesale price of the end user licenses are discounted based on volume.

By creating a private labeled version of myObservatory, you (the client) will be able to control some of the look and feel of the myObservatory system as well as add any additional content in user help, feature access, and other content management tools. This is done through the Enterprise Manager tool that comes with the Enterprise Solution product. The Enterprise Solution product is sold without end user support. As the intermediary, you provide end user support so that your particular use of the system is relevant to your customers. This arrangement allows you to integrate your custom myObservatory platform into any existing business workflows and to make all decisions concerning payment, deployment, and synergies with existing client relationships and educational activities. You can elect to have myObservatory provide end user support for your customer base and this additional service will be scoped and added to the wholesale cost of the end user licenses.

What Happens If I Decide to Proceed After My Trial?

myObservatory is a powerful set of information management tools that can support a wide range of useful workflows. The free trial period is your opportunity to test out how you would use the myObservatory Enterprise Solution and determine if it is the right solution for your needs. If you decide that myObservatory is the right tool for you, you can take one of two paths:

  1. Continue using the myObservatory Enterprise Solution as-is by entering into a license agreement. The terms are:
    1. One-time setup fee of $3,000.00 US
    2. Institutions created through the Enterprise Manager Tool are invoiced monthly to your organization at the fee decided upon during our communications with you based on volume and your needs.
    3. End User support is provided by your organization or you can elect to have myObservatory provide end user support for an additional fee if needed.
  2. Identify that the myObservatory Enterprise Solution is what you need but with some customization or new functionality for your needs. In this case you would:
    1. Enter into a Pilot Project and follow the Pilot Project Guidelines
    2. Pay a non-refundable Pilot Project fee of $5,000.00 US that will fund the Pilot Project to explore the customization development and testing. This fee includes the one-time setup fee, so no separate $3,000 setup fee is needed.
    3. Following the Pilot Project Guidelines, we will develop designs and quotes for your custom functionality, and work with you to complete the additional tools.
    4. If the Pilot Project identifies that myObservatory is not the right fit, there is no further financial obligation on your part. Thank you for trying us out!
