Microsoft Enterprise Agreement “EA” Assist
Manage cost, control risks, improve strategic planning and minimise the effort associated with Microsoft license position management, timely Enterprise Agreement True Ups and Renewals.
Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) Assist
Microsoft’s Enterprise Agreement helps organisations to respond to the rapidly changing technological landscape by enabling access to the latest cloud services and on-premises software. Microsoft EAs help organisations to streamline licensing, access volume discounts and avail of additional support benefits.
Annually, organisations must complete a Microsoft EA True-up involving the acquisition of software licenses based on consumption in the previous 12 months. Without the necessary in-house expertise, governance and data-driven insights, there is a heightened risk of both financial waste and license non-compliance where Microsoft EAs are not tightly controlled.
