Microsoft offers many licensing programs that can be extremely complex. There are licensing models that are tailored to fit the small business right through specific models and programs designed for the largest of corporations.
Which licensing program is right for your Toronto business?
Microsoft does offer flexibility across their licensing models based on company size, level of commitment and how much you use their products. However, it is this complexity that sometimes leads to your organization to invest in the wrong licensing model and overspending on your Microsoft licensing.
According to research by the Info-Tech Research Group, Microsoft licensing agreements account for almost 50% of a corporation’s software budget and less than 50% prepare to enter into some sort of negotiations around their licensing investment. Having a Microsoft Partner in your corner who understands licensing will help your business obtain the right licensing for the right price.
