Microsoft announced that they are making a strategic change to the Enterprise Agreement (EA)
program beginning on July 1, 2016. They will raise the minimum commitment for commercial customers signing new Enterprise Enrollments and Enterprise Subscription Enrollments from 250 to 500 users/devices. Existing customers approaching renewal with fewer than 500 users/devices will be able to extend their current Enrollments for 36 months, in keeping with current program rules. This is the most significant customer-program change from Microsoft since they created the direct EA in 2001. What does this change mean for you? Read on, and I’ll break it down for you.
