What’s Your Microsoft Licensing IQ?
Author: Steven Zolman
Windows 1.0 was launched over 25 years ago in 1985, and Microsoft introduced its first volume licensing program for enterprises in 1993. One would presume that in an age where technology is leveraged to increase productivity and eliminate inefficiencies, the world’s largest software company would be leading the way in simplifying how their products are purchased and managed. Sadly as many of us know, that is not the case.
Keeping up with the constant changes in your requirements, user demographics, and options, coupled with Microsoft’s hundreds of products being sold in languages and countries all over the globe, contribute to an ever more complex landscape of pricing, terms and conditions. As Microsoft migrates to yet another delivery vehicle in July 2015 with the MPSA (Microsoft Products and Services Agreement), we can likely look forward to several more years of confusion.
We’ve devised a very short Microsoft Licensing Knowledge Quiz to help you better understand what you know, and more importantly, what you don’t know. Based on our years of gathering Federated Market Intelligence (FMI) on Microsoft, we’re now able to share some of the insights to help you find where the gaps in knowledge might be and learn how to close them.
Take the quiz today and show your colleagues what an expert you are! If it turns out you’re not an expert, learn how to become one.
