Windows Server Migration Checklist

A Basic Checklist to Get You Started

by Stacy Cote | 04.17.15

When you go to the grocery store, you probably bring a list of items you plan to buy. When you go on vacation, you may checkmark the sites you want to visit in a guidebook directory. If you’ve got kids involved in a variety of activities, you’re likely to fill in your weekly calendar with the dates, times, and locations of where each of them has to be at any particular moment.

Software licensing used to be pretty cut and dry. You had a specific number of seats, so you bought a specific number of licenses. Well, it’s pretty clear those days are long gone. Your “seats” are no longer parked in front of a single computer. They’re on the move—constantly surrounded by the multitude of devices today’s users rely on to work productively wherever business takes them. From company-owned notebooks, smartphones, and tablets to BYOD-supported devices, employees need access to their must-have productivity applications at all times.

Do you remember the comment in our last blog, Deep Dive: What You Need to Know About Licensing for Windows Server 2012, advising IT leaders to be sure that they can stand by the choices they make to deploy Windows Server 2012 Standard or Datacenter on various systems across their environments?

Microsoft EA 101

Who It’s for and How It Works

by Jack Dillman | 03.18.15

Chances are you’ve probably heard of a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) before. It’s just a volume licensing deal for software, right? What’s the big deal? Well, a few years ago, a volume licensing program was just a better way to get bigger savings on big orders. Today, it’s a whole different ballgame.

With the rise of cloud, big data, and new ways of working, everyone’s looking for greater flexibility. As your technological landscape changes, you need to be able to download products, use them, pay for them, and bring them into the environment at your leisure—not on a transactional basis. Microsoft EA delivers that flexibility.
