I have read that CRM on premises can integrate now with Social.
I have read that it is $20 per user for on prem.
My questions are:
So where can I read that on an official MS page?
Where and how can I purchase that?
Why is buying something from MS always like solving a puzzle?
I was advised by the Microsoft Licensing Help Desk it was not possible to get MSE unless you have a monthly CRM license; or have a stand-alone deployment of MSE.
However rereading the documentation, the on-premise licensing guide suggests otherwise:
"The following Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online USL for SA licenses are available for Microsoft Dynamics - CALs with active Software Assurance:
Professional CAL with SA (software assurance)
* Enterprise USL for SA
* Professional USL for SA
* Social Listening Add-On for SA"
So you definitely need Software Assurance in place.
You would likely also have to pay at least $US $100 / month for posts (License = Additional posts no minimum). [So if you have a minimum of 5 users (which is what is required for e.g. an Open or Open Value license for 5 or more users) that would equate to $20/user. There was definitely talk about $20 per on-premise user early on with MSL. Perhaps that's what it was referring to.]
I can't quite work out what the following are for, unless its for standalone deployments of MSE:
* MSE Professional Direct Support License at $US 9/user/month
* MSE Enhanced Support License at US$ 5/user/month
