Ms Enterprise Agreement

While the provider introduces its most powerful research and development, sales and marketing resources into the cloud, some Microsoft corporate customers are still stuck in on-premise implementations. This has led the provider to take aggressive steps to migrate these customers to the cloud. The results include several price and licensing changes, an increase in formal and informal licensing audits (often disguised as asset management software commitments) and increased complexity and rigidity of the contract. Before we go too far, here`s a quick summary of EA. Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) is a licensing option that can offer customers exceptional value and cost savings under the right circumstances. It doesn`t suit everyone, but if your IT requirements match EA`s strengths, there`s no better way to achieve your Microsoft goals while saving money. To begin with, you must have at least 250 devices or users to be eligible, although we can still operate the EA under the right circumstances, even if you are not fully 250 seats. AAS are by far the best value for companies that want to acquire cloud services and software licenses as part of an agreement. At present, there is no indication that the Enterprise Agreement program offers such flexibility, although it has been available to PSC clients for five years. If Microsoft is to continue to become a consumer-focused business model, as they say, it needs to better “manage” operations and pricing to provide the flexibility that business customers need.

Changes in today`s business climate, coupled with Microsoft`s mission to relocate businesses to the cloud, are changing the way it does business with its largest customers. Companies considering renewing their enterprise agreements or acquiring supplier offers for the first time can use the forces that fuel Microsoft`s behavior at the negotiating table. As a public company, Microsoft`s mission is to accurately predict revenue.
