Case Studies Provide Tips for Successful Software Licensing

Microsoft Volume Licensing serves organizations worldwide of virtually all sizes, from those with just a few employees to those with tens of thousands dispersed across the globe. Seeing similarities between your organization’s needs and the success achieved by another company through a case study is a great way to help inform your choices.

With this in mind, the Microsoft Case Studies website serves as the go-to resource into how customers and partners utilize the various Microsoft Volume Licensing programs, from open value to the enterprise agreement, and numerous other options which provide the flexibility and cost efficiencies to the best technology solution.

Check out these two new licensing-themed case studies added in the past month: 

  • Trend Micro, a Tokyo-based provider of Internet security software and services, reduced its licensing by 30 percent when the company joined the Microsoft Volume Licensing Enrollment for Application Platform (EAP) program in 2008, and expects savings to continue for SQL Server 2012. Also, under the Software Assurance program, Trend Micro will have access to the latest versions of EAP components as well as training, planning services, and support.  
  • Stockholm University in Sweden, utilizing the Microsoft Campus Agreement with the Enterprise Client Access License (CAL) suite, acquired Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 for its 5,000 staff to replace eight different email systems. The deployment took place seamlessly over one weekend all while helping to cut operating costs by €80,000 (U.S. $104,000).
