Buyer Beware: “Total Production Environment” Licensing Pitfalls

How to Avoid a Logistical Compliance Nightmare

by Lane Shelton | 07.09.14

You’ve probably noticed a constant shift in the licensing landscape as software publishers strive to accommodate evolving customer requirements (thought I’d put it nicely). For example, bundling is a popular tactic, where products are grouped together and additional discounts or advantageous use-rights applied when you acquire the bundle. In many cases, a bundle represents an attractive option; however, at times they also include unintended pitfalls. Lately, I’ve seen one specific issue surface quite a bit. What’s more, it has serious compliance ramifications so I’d like to spend some time getting you up to speed. If you currently have a Microsoft Enrollment for Application Platform (EAP), or the newest incarnation called the Server/Cloud Enrollment (SCE), you should know that from a logistical standpoint there could be a dark cloud looming over your organization, so please read on.

If you are reading this and you still have not made the move, you’re not alone. According to a recent survey of over 3,000 IT professionals by Redmond magazine, 23% of desktops and laptops will run XP indefinitely. In addition, 25% of the respondents said they would migrate off of XP eventually, indicating it is not a priority, while 16% are scrambling to make the move. And 8% of people still haven’t decided how and when to migrate off of XP.
