Microsoft Licensing Options

Microsoft provide several different agreements suitable for small and large organisations. If you’re unsure on the best fit for your business do not hesitate to reach out to our licensing experts for more information.

Enterprise Agreement

The Microsoft Enterprise Agreement offers the best value to organisations with 500 or more users or devices that want a manageable volume licensing program that gives them the flexibility to buy cloud services and software licenses under one agreement.

Microsoft Enterprise Subscription

The Enterprise Agreement includes a subscription option that lowers initial licensing costs because you subscribe to the rights to use Microsoft products and services instead of owning them. The subscription option also enables you to increase or decrease subscription counts on an annual basis.

Cloud Solution Provider

The Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Program enables purchases of online service subscriptions, Azure services and some on-premises software via the Microsoft Customer Agreement. It’s the most flexible agreement designed for today’s modern businesses – allowing you to take advantage of True PAYG billing and benefit from the highest discounts through Reserved Instances, Hybrid Benefits and Software Subscriptions.

Digital Transformation Arrangement

Microsoft and the UK government have now announced their new Microsoft Digital Transformation Arrangement (DTA21). This new arrangement sets the preferential government discounts for Microsoft products for the next three years. It is essential that all UK Public Sector organisations fully understand how to benefit from this.

Microsoft Products and Services Agreement

The Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA) is a transactional licensing agreement for commercial, academic and government organisations. It is an evergreen agreement signed by a legal entity, designed for organisations with 250 or more users/devices, consolidating Microsoft cloud services, software and Microsoft Software Assurance.
