3 Description of the service

Digital communications keep growing within organizations, generating information overload and loss of productivity.  Companies understood the challenge and are heavily investing in new tools (instant messaging, professional social networks, collaborative platforms…) and new methods to exit the era of “only-email”.

Since 2008, Tryane is convinced that measuring the collaboration activity is mandatory to progress.

Tryane Analytics is the dashboard which allows you to pilot this key transition for your business. Tryane Analytics is a SAAS service designed to help you increase efficiency and boost adoption on Office 365 by:

  • Measuring the adoption of Office 365 products across your organization
  • Analyzing which tools are thriving
  • Giving your community managers access to the statistics of their perimeter
  • Discovering which content is driving the audience
  • Analyzing user collaboration behavior within your company
  • Helping you managing your Office 365 governance

Communication Insights by Tryane is a SAAS service providing advanced statistics about Internal Communications campaigns:

  • Measure the performance of corporate news
  • Measure what are the most popular pages/items/news/documents
  • Detect inactive content and analyze why
  • Power the employee experience with advanced analytics
  • Discover which departments are the most engaged

Both solutions connect to its Clients’ Office 365 tenant to collect and capture users’ activity in Office 365. This activity is then used to compute advanced Key Performance Indicators of employees’ usage of collaboration tools in their company.

Both solutions use an HTLM5 responsive design GUI that will display on any device (laptop, smartphone, tablet) and any browser. They been designed to be easy-to-use and easy-to-understand (within minutes) especially by non-technical person.

4 How do we collect your data?

We distinguish two kinds of data collection:

9 Data privacy and security rules

We take all steps required to protect the personal data we process. We ensure an appropriate level of security, protection and confidentiality based on the sensitivity of your data, using administrative, technical, and physical measures preventing any loss or theft or any unauthorized use, disclosure or alteration of your data. Amongst all those principles we can cite:

  • We only process what is necessary: Clients’ data not required to provide the Tryane Analytics service is never read nor stored
  • Tryane Analytics and Communication Insights does not read nor store the content of documents stored in our Client’s SharePoint or attachments in our client’s emails.
  • Raw individual activity is not accessible directly and the department-level aggregated data (obtained from calculations) is only accessible from the application GUI
  • All personal or confidential data is always encrypted
  • Tryane protects the integrity of the Service, the results, the secure process, transfer, and the backup of the data on the software platform.

The security rules are available on demand.

10 Data quality

Most of the data (users’ activities in Microsoft products) is generated and processed automatically without user interaction, which guarantees a high level of quality of processed data.

Other information such as user profile options, notification options, company structure modeling and any other option available in the end-user interface (website) can be updated manually. The User is solely responsible for circulating this data and he is required to ensure this information is accurate.

In order to guarantee the highest level of quality, all data collected by the application is always subject to multiple validations (format validation, content validation) before being processed and stored by Tryane Analytics and Communication Insights.

11 Sharing your data

Tryane does not share personal or any other kind of information with companies, organizations, and individuals unless one of the following circumstances applies:

  • Meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.
  • Enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations (with Client consent).
  • Detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues (with client Consent).

In all those circumstances, Tryane privacy rules will be communicated to third parties to whom personal information may be disclosed. Third parties must align with Tryane Security, Privacy and Confidentiality policies, and will be selected using criteria described in the Security Policy (available on demand).

Tryane will maintain a record of authorized disclosures of personal information that is complete, accurate, and timely.

Tryane would take remediation action in response to misuse of personal information by a third party to whom Tryane would have transferred such information.

In the future, if Tryane has to change this policy and share personal data to third parties not identified by the circumstances described above, Tryane will first notify all its affected customers and ask for consent before any data is shared.

12 Consent

Tryane uses Azure AD applications to collect your data (Please refer to chapter “How do we collect your data”).

Azure AD applications follow an authorization model that gives users and administrators control over how data can be accessed: our applications define a set of permissions required by Tryane to perform the Tryane Analytics services.

To benefit from those permissions, Azure AD applications have to request these permissions from users and administrators, who must approve the request before the app can access data or act on a user’s behalf. Request approvement is performed using a standard consent prompt workflow (managed by Microsoft), and designed to ensure users have enough information to determine if they trust the client application to access protected resources on their behalf (for more details about Azure AD application consent, please refer to

In conclusion, Tryane cannot access any of your data until a user or and administrator of your tenant has explicitly given his consent to. Furthermore, access to your data is limited to the permissions listed in our Azure AD applications.

If in the future and as part of the product evolution, if Tryane Analytics/Communication Insights requires new permissions, it will result in the modification of the authorizations of associated Tryane Azure AD applications. Therefore, Clients and Users will be automatically prompted to re-consent the Tryane Azure Ad applications, and the associated data collection and processing activities.
