Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA)

There's a Big Change Coming to the Microsoft EA Program

What This Means for Your Essential Software Licenses

by Lane Shelton | 01.13.16

Microsoft announced that they are making a strategic change to the Enterprise Agreement (EA) program beginning on July 1, 2016.

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.

The Next Step to Your Cloud-Enabled Enterprise

by Patrick Renzi | 01.04.16

In this day and age, cloud services can no longer be considered a niche product. We have officially moved into a realm where the public and hybrid cloud are essential tools for any modern business. Today’s world demands standardization across platforms, fast performance, and scalability of all services. Cloud delivers those capabilities—and it’s hard to imagine going back to a time when that functionality wasn’t there.
