Microsoft Licensing Programs: Discover all the Options
This Forum workshop considered the options for Microsoft licensing in the enterprise as Microsoft changes its licence strategy to reflect the future impact of its Office 365 service, and introduces new offerings such as Select Plus in place of Select, and which offers potential savings for those organisations able to act swiftly.
Microsoft, like other vendors, has to embrace the realities and implications of the Cloud, and that means it is introducing changes in licensing that enterprises have to understand and take advantage of.
This Forum workshop was attended by 22 delegates representing 18 organisations from a wide cross-section of industries, including insurance, car hire, airlines, media and publishing, public relations and integrated healthcare, construction, mapping, local government, retail, recruitment, charity, manufacturing and leisure.
The event, delivered with the help of licensing specialist SoftwareONE, set out to give support, vendor and commercial managers insight into existing and forthcoming Microsoft licensing issues, enabling them to take immediate action and best plan their licensing strategies for the future.
