The etherpad from the recent MWStake Board meeting

Coursera, the massively? popular online learning platform is an example of "EMW" in the education segment. You can certainly cater an EMW to serve similar functions. Use that as a case study / industry vertical. And, related, there are companies like Google that host their training / certification systems on Coursera which could be an EMW. Example: Google Cloud Certification: Cloud Architect Professional Certificate

According to Skillsoft [1] it's one of the top certifications for 2022

SaaS Examples[edit source]

I've got these examples in various places. Need to condense the list; review it; make use of it.

Aviary Platform
Aviary is a video hosting service (that Heather Meeker uses for ?)
Fuse is a software service by iMarc for CPA societies. Pricing is based on 3 sizes:
  • < 1,000 starting at $1,500/mo
  • 1,000 - 10,000 starting at $1,800/mo
  • > 10,000 starting at $4,400/mo

Go to Market[edit source]

Get listed / approved for major product integration marketplaces such as Microsoft's AppSource and Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Pricing[edit source]

Make sure to offer pricing and maintenance based on the size of the organization. Even though there is no per seat license fee for MediaWiki (as FOSS software), you still need to charge your maintenance or subscription fee according to the size of the pocket book and will have expenses or overhead according to the size of the customer.

Note that Amazon charges $15,000 a month or more for Enterprise level support that promises 15-minute response times and a "concierge-style experience" with an assigned Technical Account Manager. Learn more. Also, take a look at their pricing for Outposts - their rack on your premises. How does half a million dollars sound for 3 yrs storage?[1]
