Software News

The latest software news and solutions to help you assess, plan, and implement your IT projects. From articles on new or upgraded software, including operating systems and virtualization, to procurement and integration issues, such as licensing options, and more. We’ll keep you Connected with our Software News.


Licensing

The Microsoft Product and Services Agreement (MPSA) At-a-Glance allows customers to purchase not only licenses, but also License and Software Assurance (SA), and online services like O365 under one agreement—enabling a more elastic setup. One of the main draws to having all these license and subscription options in one place is having one agreement to manage and one site to view and review licenses. This site is called the Business Center, and in it customers have the ability to quickly provision subscription-based products like O365—and instantly access them—all while having them co-term to the anniversary date. But wait, there’s more.

What’s even more unique about this release is that a lot of these upgrades to Windows 10 have been for free thanks to Microsoft’s Free Upgrade Offer—but that will soon be coming to an end on July 29, 2016.

Office 365 Transition Potholes

Avoid Obstacles on the Road to Success

by Patrick Renzi | 05.18.16

It’s a question I get asked just about every time I speak to someone regarding Office 365. What questions should I be asking about the transition? What should I look out for? What is going to happen that I am not expecting? Well that’s the thing: not knowing what to expect makes it awfully hard to plan what to do when it happens. But what if you had a Magic 8-Ball?
