          Is a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement Right for Your Organization?

          Has anyone ever tried to convince you that a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement is just the right plan for you?  An EA can be a powerful cost-cutting tool that helps you stay compliant and up to date.  But, not everyone should be in an EA. In fact, many organizations will find the program to be an inefficient licensing vehicle for their specific needs.  An EA does make sense under certain conditions. However, if those conditions are not present, other Microsoft licensing programs may be the best fit for your organization. 

          In this webinar, we  talk about types of situations that might benefit from an EA as well as scenarios that might be better served by other programs.  Presented by one of our top Microsoft Practice licensing analysts, Jack Dillman, this webinar helps you explore key considerations regarding the EA, what to watch for, and where the greatest opportunities for licensing optimization lie.
