As your Microsoft Enterprise Agreement is set to expire, there’s a great deal to consider with your renewal options.
Some considerations when determining the next, best course of action:
- current entitlements
- expansion and consolidation
- dynamics of the environment (e.g. remote users and access devices)
- the company’s roadmap versus Microsoft’s roadmap
- current license position
- spending target
Every organization is unique and there is no clear cut answer to what is best. The products, the quantity, the license programs, the current state, the look forward, are all unique in every situation.
It can be impossibly complex to navigate this renewal process unless you understand a vendor’s specific licensing rules – in this case Microsoft – and can customize approaches that are most favorable to your organization.
