Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

StackOverflow could be very useful for my company, e.g. for new employees looking for answers on how company processes work. Is there a way to buy SO as a product and to deploy it internally ? For obvious confidentiality reasons, there is no way we would accept a (private) hosted version.

Q: I am interested in creating a private, internal Stack Exchange inside my organization.

A: We no longer offer such a product.
