Thanks Microsoft: Cyborg Licensing User-Based Windows OS Is Here

Bring Your Own (and Be Your Own) Device Within Reach

by Lane Shelton | 11.11.14

Microsoft has embraced “by device” selling for their Windows desktop operating system since what feels like the beginning of time. But change has compounded over the past several years and truly transformed our computing experience. So much so that ordinary end-users (myself included) are lugging around a bagful of devices in order to stay connected at all times. We all want to work and play on devices that we choose to use—not to be hampered by things like file synchronization and compatibility or good taste getting in our way. As a result, we are slowly but surely becoming a community of cyborgs. Finally, Microsoft is listening! We want to bring our own device and even BE our own device. What does that all really mean?

Microsoft Office 365

Office 365 is new territory for Microsoft. It’s a transformational move at the center of their productivity stack. Tried and true products like Office, Project, and Visio are being transformed into online solutions. Right now that’s a mix of in-the-cloud and on-premises, what some call “software plus services.” But the reach is extending beyond the center: now there’s CRM online, Visual Studio Online, SQL Power BI, Microsoft Azure, Azure Active Directory—and the list keeps growing. We all know how that’s affecting the licensing—shifting from “I own it” to “I’m pretty much renting it, forever and ever.” That by itself is a tough choice for many customers to make, and requires careful and thorough due diligence. And while I won’t detail this today (really), I want to remind you to talk to us about our Microsoft License Optimization (MLO) process if you’re struggling with it—we can help.

The Four Most Important Questions About Office 365

What You Need to Know Before You Make the Move

by James Nagurney | 08.27.14

Microsoft’s year ended with a flurry of activity on June 30. One of the trends we continue to see developing is the move towards the cloud and Office 365. It’s no secret that Microsoft has been pushing Office 365 hard in the last year or so, and has been offering price and funding incentives for current customers to make the leap. Microsoft’s cloud offerings suit some customers just fine; for other customers, we recommend sticking with the current perpetual licensing model. It really depends on the circumstances, and, of course, the cost. As I travel around the country talking to Microsoft customers about Office 365, I encounter some common themes/concerns/considerations around this offering. Read on for the four questions I’ve encountered most frequently.
