8 Microsoft Sells Licenses, Not Software We sell licenses to use software… We don’t sell the softwareSoftware can only be used within parameters defined by the licenseMatch customer needsMicrosoft® Windows® XP ProfessionalEND-USER LICENSE AGREEMENTIMPORTANT-READ CAREFULLY: This End-User License Agreement ("EULA") is a legal agreement between you (either an individual or a single entity) and Microsoft Corporation for the Microsoft software product identified above, which includes computer software and may include associated media, printed materials, "online" or electronic documentation, and Internet-based services ("Product"). An amendment or addendum to this EULA may accompany the Product. YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS EULA BY INSTALLING, COPYING, OR OTHERWISE USING THE PRODUCT. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE, DO NOT INSTALL OR USE THE PRODUCT; YOU MAY RETURN IT TO YOUR PLACE OF PURCHASE FOR A FULL REFUND.1. GRANT OF LICENSE. Microsoft grants you the following rights provided that you comply with all terms and conditions of this EULA:* Installation and use. You may install, use, access, display and run one copy of the product on a single computer, such as a workstation, terminal or other device (“workstation computer"). The product may not be used by more than two processors at any one time on any single workstation computer.You may permit a maximum of 10 computers or other electronic devices (each a “device") to connect to the workstation computer to utilize the services of the product solely for File and Print services, Internet Information Services, and remote access (including connection sharing and telephony services). The 10 connection maximum includes any indirect connections made through "multiplexing" or other software or hardware which pools or aggregates connections. Except as otherwise permitted by the NetMeeting, Remote Assistance, and Remote Desktop features described below, you may not use the product to permit any device to use, access, display or run other executable software residing on the workstation computer, nor may you permit any device to use, access, display, or run the product or product's user interface, unless the device has a separate license for the product.The common perception is a misconceptionIt is a common misconception that software, once purchased, may be used by the person(s) who bought it in any, and every way they want.Customers think that they can buy one software product and then re-install it more than once.Although this may be physically possible, it is actually against the law.Intellectual Property (IP) allows people to own their creativity and innovation in the same way that they own physical property.The owner of IP can control and be rewarded for its use, and this encourages further innovation and creativity to the benefit of all involved.The four main types of IP are:Patents for inventions - new and improved products and processes that are capable of industrial application.Trade Marks for brand identity - of goods and services allowing distinctions to be made between different traders.Designs for product appearance - of the whole or a part of a product resulting from the features of, in particular, the lines, contours, colors, shape, texture or materials of the product itself or its ornamentation.Copyright for material - literary and artistic material, music, films, sound recordings and broadcasts, including software and multimedia.Source: UK Government IP Web siteMicrosoft does not sell software, it sells the right to use the software. Use of the software outside of the rights defined is a breach of the vendor’s IPR.IP is protected by law in a number of ways. A software owner can protect their rights by:Civil action brought by the copyright ownerCriminal proceedings brought by:A criminal enforcement authority, for example, Trading Standards, the Police or HM Customs Actions by HM Customs and ExciseA private prosecution brought by the rights holderAnd Microsoft is no different than other software companies like IBM & Oracles (for example). If license are not used within the parameters defined, Microsoft has the right to revoke the right to use.
9 Server LicensingMicrosoft servers can be licensed according to the following licensing models.Licensing ModelLicenses RequiredServer ExampleServers – Operating SystemsServer license + CAL + optional external connectorWindows ServerServers – Server/CALExchange ServerServers – Management ServersServer license + device management licenseSystem Center Configuration ManagerServers – Per ProcessorPer processor licenseSQL ServerSpeaker Notes:As per the PUR, the licensing models for servers are as follows:Servers – Operating SystemsServers – Server/CALServers – Management ServersServers – Per ProcessorServers – Specialty Servers
10 Standard and Enterprise CALs A CAL allows client computers access to the services of a serverA Standard CAL allows client computers access to a limited set of fundamental services of the serverClient gets basic functionsStandard CALAn Enterprise CAL allows client computers access to more advanced services of the serverIt “adds to” rather than includes the functionality of the Standard CALEnterprise CALClient gets more functionsBOTH CALs are required to give clients access to all functionsInstructor Note:Enterprise CAL (or Additive CAL) was introduced in FY07, with the launch of Wave12 (Office2007, Vista and Exchange).These enterprise features can be enabled through the Admin module, simply by choosing from the menu “Enable Enterprise Features”, and entering the Enterprise CAL product key.For example, with Exchange Server 2007, the Enterprise CAL provides these additional features:Advanced Exchange ActiveSync PoliciesUnified MessagingPer-User/Per-Distribution List JournalingManaged Folders (Custom Folders)Forefront Online Security for Exchange (formerly Exchange Hosted Filtering)Forefront Security for Exchange ServerIn Office SharePoint Server, the additional features include:Business Data CatalogExcel ServicesReport CenterInfoPath Forms ServicesKey Performance Indicator (KPI)Filter Web PartsQuestion to class : If a customer needs the functionality in server that requires the Enterprise CAL, do they need to buy the Standard/Base CAL? - YesStandard CALClient gets basic functions2007 Office System Server Licensing
11 Servers and CALs – Per Device Server LicenceSlide Overview:To understand the notion of Device CALsNotes to Presenter (Microsoft Confidential):Ensure that attendees understand that a device CAL entitles them to access the services of that type of server anywhere on the networkThe CAL is not only product-specific, but it is also version-specific, which means that the version of the CAL must be at least the same or higher than the installed version of the server.Note that a Windows Server CAL is required whether you use client software supplied by Microsoft or software from a third party vendorSupporting Information:Transition:The other way of licensing a CAL...Device CALNumber of CALs equal to total number of devices accessing or utilising the server(s)
12 Servers and CALs – Per User Server LicencePhone and /or PDASlide Overview:To understand the notion of User CALsNotes to Presenter (Microsoft Confidential):Make sure that people realise that this is a frequent and usual scenario – use your own example of many devices connecting to getWindows Device and User CALs can be used on the same server. For ease of management and tracking though, Microsoft recommends that customers choose to acquire CALs on either a device or user basis.Give examples at the end of the slide as to when a Device CAL would be useful – perhaps in a manufacturing organisation where a PC was used for lots of people to enter timesheet informationSupporting Information:Transition:And the final aspect with CALs is to understand that there are different Client Access Licensing Modes...User CAL One CAL covers the total number of devices accessing or utilising the server owned by one person

42 Volume License Positioning CustomerSegmentTransactionalComprehensive (Relational)Perpetual(Owned)Non-Perpetual(Time-defined)Small andMid-SizedOrganizationsOpen ValueOpen Value Company-WideOpen Value SubscriptionLarge OrganizationsAll marketsOEM(5-250 PC)Microsoft Select Plus( > 250 PC)Discussion: EA targets for sales, balance how we can position EA to transactional large customers.We offer different Volume Licensing programs, in two dimensions: by customer segment and by transaction1. The vertical dimension is the customer segment.We distinguish between Small and Mid-Sized Organizations, typically any company between five and 500 PCs, and Large Organizations with 250+ PCs. Note that there is an overlap between these segments.For each of these two segments, we have a separate Volume Licensing training.Please bear in mind that Large Organizations sometimes also use a Volume Licensing program that is meant for Small and Mid-Sized Organizations, for example, when they need relatively few licenses.This is why we do recommend that LARs and ESAs attend both Volume Licensing training sessions.2. On the horizontal dimension you see Transactional and Annuity-Based programs.A Transactional program requires a license to be obtained before the installation takes place.OEM, FPP, Open License and Select Plus are all based on this approach. Customers can “buy as and when they need” the licenses.The administrative overhead can be a major burden for both you and your customer.That is why we also have Annuity-Based Programs, which allow an annual count of the number of PCs or installed copies, annual ordering and annual payment.The benefits are obvious: a massive reduction of the administrative overhead and spread payments.Other points to note:Open Value (OV) Perpetual is not annual ordering for True Up. Annual ordering is for EA,EAS and OVS. You can say use 1st and pay later. For OV you need to buy within 30 days from time of install. EA,EAS,OVS would be annually.Annuity-based programs are for customer who want a stronger relationship and commitment with MS.EA is best for companies with >250 PCs, and OV for those <250 PCsEntity-Wide standardizationTIP: Customer’s procurement process provides clue into their purchasing habit – and therefore whether you can propose enterprise-wide standardization
43 Transactional and Relational Licensing Transactional LicensingRelational LicensingPayment term: pay up-front (Ad-hoc purchases)Payment term: Spread, predictable payments, 0% interestObtain licenses if and when neededAnnual orderingLicensing programs:Open LicenseSelect Plus1Open Value CWEnterprise AgreementCharacteristicsFlexibleNo ongoing commitmentsAppropriate for decentralized decision taking and orderingNo price protectionFinance your purchasesReduced overhead costsLower cost per licenseAppropriate for centralized decision taking and orderingLong-term price protectionExplain it in terms of payment flexibility/one-off.Licenses can be obtained in two distinct ways:Transactional Licensing means that the license follows the software program. If you decide to install a particular copy or make another copy, then a license is needed. This approach is very flexible: you only obtain licenses if and when needed.Volume Licensing programs that use this approach are Open License for Small and Mid-Sized Organizations and Select Plus for enterprises with at least 250 PCs.When many installations take place, the administrative overhead of monitoring installations, placing purchase orders and processing invoices make licensing a time-consuming process. As an alternative, customers can deploy Annuity-Based Licensing, which means that the customer only needs to count its desktops or installed copies, place a purchase order and pay one invoice per annum.Volume licensing programs that are Annuity-Based are MYO License*, OSL* and Open License Value for organizations with 5 to 250+ PCs, and Enterprise Agreement and Enterprise Subscription Agreement for Larger Organizations.*EMEA only programsIn the case of Contoso, which uses a lot of Microsoft solutions, if I was the IT manager, transactional licensing would be too expensive to bear. With 0% interest, I might as well spread the payment out.1 Spread payments for L&SA and SA-only.

License agreements between Microsoft and OEM partners clearly state that the support is to be provided by the OEM in all cases. This is reflected in the amount that Microsoft charges OEMs for its software.
45 Why Volume Licensing?Volume Licensing programs provide customers the ability to buy just the rights required and the flexibility in acquiring it.These programs offer supplementary benefits, such as:Up-front or annual spread paymentsAdditional savings and benefits associated with technology standardization on the desktopCross-Language RightsRe-imaging RightsPortable Use RightsSoftware AssuranceDowngrade RightsSimplify license management with single agreement and online tracking tool (VLSC)One VL key for activation – lower administration costsSpeaker Notes:Volume Licensing programs offer SMB organizations the flexibility to choose theway these organizations acquire their software licenses. By separating thelicense from the media and documentation, and packaging, Volume Licensingoffers cost-effective pricing, based on the size of the acquisition.SMB organizations require custom-tailored licensing solutions for their variousneeds. Microsoft Volume Licensing programs offer customized options and avariety of benefits that far outweigh those offered by Full Packaged Product(FPP) or Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) licensing solutions. Thesebenefits include:The right to downgrade to any previous version of the software.The right to use other language versions of the software.The right to copy software onto multiple devices from one standard image, using Volume Licensing media.The right to install a second license on a portable computer. Note: This right is applicable to applications only.

47 Open Regional Affiliates To qualify as an Open regional affiliate, a corporateaffiliate must:Be located in the same geographic region as the Open customer.Meet the definition criteria of a regional affiliate.Meet any additional affiliate definition for its specific region.Speaker Notes:In Open License, the name mentioned on the agreement must be that of the legal entity using the software. However, re-ordering by other entities within the same holding is permitted.Entities within the Open Value and Open Value Subscription programs can share the same agreement across entities in the same territory.In certain situations, multinational customers can share their Open License authorization number with their affiliates. This enables affiliates to place orders under one authorization number and at associated price levels.The Open License Agreement provides corporate customers with the ability to extend their purchasing power to qualifying affiliates throughout a single geographic region.

102 Perpetual and Non-Perpetual Licensing Licensing Essentials - Sales TrackMarch 2006Perpetual and Non-Perpetual LicensingPerpetual LicenseNon-Perpetual License‘Everlasting’ License‘Defined end date’ LicenseOpen LicenseOpen ValueOpen Value Company-WideOpen Value SubscriptionTransactional or Annuity-Based Licensing determines how and when you will buy licenses. Now let’s look at the kind of licenses.A Perpetual License is bought once and provides the right to use a particular version or a particular software program forever. This is also referred to as an ‘everlasting’ license. In the long run, this is often most cost-effective, but it does impact on a customer’s cash flow. Compare this to the choice between buying a new car or leasing one.A Non-Perpetual License is temporary, and provides a time-limited right to use a particular software program until a specific end-date. Non-Perpetual Licenses are only available through Annuity-Based Licensing Programs: OSL and Enterprise Subscription Agreement .

It is flexible, but we have also seen some drawbacks:The impact on the customer’s cash flow can be substantial, especially if many licenses with SA need to be bought and paid for upfront.Open License is based on Transactional Licensing, so the licenses must be ordered before the software programs are installed.Open License does not provide any price protection, so it is very difficult to predict what the budget should be for next year.An Open License is always entered into by a single legal entity, which makes manageability challenging and reduces the likelihood of achieving economies of scale.

114 Check-point Question A. Enterprise Subscription Agreement Plumpits Insurance Group, based in New York City, wants make an initial purchase of 1,000 Microsoft Office licenses. The organization wants to standardize its desktop software, and needs a licensing program that is perpetual. Plumpits also expects to increase the number of desktops after a year, and requires a licensing program that keeps the costs constant. Which of the following program best meet Plumpits' requirements?A. Enterprise Subscription AgreementB. Open Value SubscriptionC. Open LicenseD. Open Value Company-wideSpeaker Notes:Answer Key: Option D is correct. Open Value Companywide would be appropriate for an organization that wants to standardize its desktop software and control costs through spread payments. This program enables customers to increase the number of platform licenses. Customers can also plan their budgets, because the licensing cost remains constant throughout the licensing term.Option A is incorrect. Enterprise Subscription Agreement is a non-perpetual program.Option B is incorrect. Open Value Subscription is a non-perpetual program.Option C is incorrect. Open License is suitable for small and mid-sized organizations.Option D is correct!
116 Customer Target Audience Midsize or larger businesses (same as Select)Typically purchase through a Select agreementValue the flexibility of purchasing software when needed (project specific needs)Want volume licensing pricing advantage across the organization and its affiliatesMay not add SA in all their software purchases
117 Select Plus Licence Program Aimed at customers with 250+ desktopsPerpetual licences36 month Software Assurance optionalEvergreen agreementFour price levels based on points and poolsSelect SAM offeredMonthly orderingOptional paymentsSlide Overview:To give an overview of the key features of a Select Licence agreementNotes to Presenter (Microsoft Confidential):There are different payment options available if a customer chooses SA – don’t get into that on this deck – this will be covered in the Part 2 moduleEnsure that the notion of forecasting is understoodSupporting Information:Customers order the licences in the month of installation and pay at that point too. If they have opted for L&SA for those licences then they can choose to spread the payments (more on this in Module 2).Select Licence is based on the customer’s forecast but Microsoft assesses the forecasts before entering into a Select Licence agreement.Don’t forget that early terminations may negatively impact your relation with the customer, and so you shouldn’t always offer Select to those customers that seem to meet the volume criteria – another program like Open Value Non-Companywide may very well be a better choice.Software Assurance is optional in Select but if a customer chooses to purchase L&SA, the cost is divided annually over the term of their agreement.Transition:We’ve mentioned that price levels are based on points and pools so let’s take a closer look at that
118 Select Plus Price Level There are 4 levels of pricing under the Select Plus ProgramPrice Level is established at the Lead Affiliate LevelAll Affiliates associated with the Lead Affiliate will purchase at the price levelThe initial order qualifies an organization for the corresponding price levelAutomatic tiered pricing when next price level is achievedLevelPointsA500B4000C10000D25000
119 Automatic Tiered Pricing No point forecastingAdditional discounts are applied to the order that achieves the next price level at any time in the yearPurchases from all affiliates apply to the organization’s price levelCompliance once per year. Purchases from the previous 12 months are reviewedIf the purchase minimum for the current level is not met the customer is moved down a maximum of one pricing levelNew AgreementAnniversary Compliance CheckCBAT15,000 pts Server PoolLevel BT220,000 pts Server PoolDNew price level on T2 transaction25000 pts10000 pts500 pts4000 ptsPricing;In Select Plus there is no point forecasting, additional price levels are applied to the order that achieves the price level and this happens at any time in the year. The price level is applied for the organization at the lead affiliate level (purchases from all affiliates apply to the organizations price level). Once per year compliance is run and purchases from the previous 12 months are reviewed, if the purchase minimum for the current level is not met the customer is moved down a maximum of one pricing level.In Select there is point forecasting and the first year price level is based on the point forecast. At the end of year one compliance is run and a new price level may be established (you can move down multiple price levels vs. Select Plus where there is a maximum move of one price level also the customer’s enrollment can be terminated if they don’t purchase enough vs. Select Plus where the agreement is put ‘on hold’ until the minimum purchase is made). In Select a customer may purchase enough points to achieve a better discount early in a year but they need to wait until compliance to receive the better price level and that price level isn’t applied to any past purchases.In EA the price level is based on the initial order of platform products by pool.
120 Q&A - Billing Options Q. When can a customer choose billing options? Q. When can a customer choose billing options?A. Customers can choose billing options at the time of the order using any of the three options available with Select Plus (Annual, Anniversary, Order anniversary).Q. Does each registered affiliate have its own affiliate anniversary date, or are these aligned to the lead affiliate’s anniversary?A. Each affiliate has their own anniversary date to use for billing and coverage alignment.
121 Q&A : Auto tiered pricing Q. If a customer is at Level A and does not meet compliance the first year, are they placed on hold the next year? A. YES. If a customer is at Level A and purchases fewer than 500 annual points in a product pool for a given year, the customer’s account is put on hold for that pool until the customer reaches the 500 point level again. An order for the minimum annual points automatically reactivates the product pool, with no need to sign new forms or renegotiate the agreement terms.
122 Check-point Question (2 of 2) After the customer sets the price level, identify the parties who agree on the final pricing, from the options given.Microsoft and the customerThe customer and the LARThe LAR and MicrosoftSpeaker Notes:Answer Key: Option B is correct. After Microsoft has set the price levels for the customer, the LAR and the customer will agree on the final pricing.Option B is correct.

The Enterprise Agreement provides perpetual licenses that are everlasting and valid as long as the software is used in accordance with the Product Use Rights (PUR) requirements. The Enterprise Subscription Agreement provides non-perpetual licenses that are temporary and provide a time-limited right to use particular products.The Enterprise Agreement has no end date. When the Enterprise Enrollment ends after three years, the customer owns a perpetual license for the then-current version. The customer can extend the agreement by one or three years, and only pay for Software Assurance. A customer can add additional desktops, by True-up ordering, and also add additional products during the term of the enrollment.üüThree-year agreement termüüChannel-assisted procurement modelüüSubscription-based modelûü
128 Enrollment and Entities Enterprise Agreement programs are structured for centralized organizations. Multiple entities can share an agreement if they are part of the same organization.Advantages of multiple entities sharing an agreement:The price level is determined by the requirements of the organization and all the affiliates under the agreement. Therefore, it is easier to achieve a favorable price level.Speaker Notes:The Enterprise Volume Licensing programs are based on the “opt-in” mechanism. Under thismechanism, every entity can decide whether or not to participate in the agreement.The benefits of the Opt-in mechanism are:A single agreement for multiple entities is much easier to manage than a set of agreements. This can assist a decentralized organization in the process of standardization compliance.The number of qualified desktops determines the price level for Enterprise Agreement and Enterprise Subscription Agreement.
129 Three year L&SA Price Level ProcurementThe price level is calculated at the beginning of the enrollment.The price per desktop is fixed for the term of the enrollment.DesktopsThree year L&SA Price Level250 – 2,399A2,400 – 5,999B6,000 – 14,999C15,000 and overDPayments are spread over three years and made in three equal annual installments.Speaker Notes:While signing an Enterprise Agreement, customers are responsible for reporting the total number of qualified desktops within the whole organization.Customers must commit every qualified desktop, and ensure that the qualified desktops are covered with one or more of the Enterprise Platform software. The total quantity of initial qualified desktops determines the price level for the Enterprise software during the initial term.The payments for the initial number of desktops are made in three equal yearly installments, which are due at the start of the first, second, and third year. Additional desktops, or True Up, are to be paid for at the end of the first, second, and third year. At the end of the third year, on the fourth anniversary of the enrollment, a customer only pays for any additional desktops.If a customer wants to acquire additional products under the Enterprise Agreement, the same pricing model applies. Additional products added at signing can have payments spread, and added copies can be True-up as well.
130 Check-point Question (1 of 2) You are an Enterprise Software Advisor. One of your customers is a medium-sized manufacturing company that wants to standardize desktop software with Microsoft Enterprise products and get access to the latest versions. They have 300 desktops that they would like to license. However, due to budget constraints, they are looking for ways to defray costs.Identify the license agreement that is most appropriate for your customer.Select LicenseEnterprise AgreementEnterprise Subscription AgreementSpeaker Notes:Answer Key: Option C is correct. Because the customer is a medium-sized organization and has over 250 desktops, they qualify for the Enterprise Agreement program. However, because they are interested in defraying costs, the best option for them would be the Enterprise Subscription Agreement program. In addition, the Enterprise Subscription Agreement program is a leasing model, and is more cost-effective than the Enterprise Agreement model.Option C is correct.
131 Check-point Question (2 of 2) What should the customer do when the Enterprise Enrollment Agreement expires after a duration of three years?The customer has to acquire a new Enterprise Agreement.The customer will own perpetual licenses for the then-current versions of products acquired under the Enterprise Agreement.The customer has to count the new qualified desktops that they have bought in the last year of the agreement.Speaker Notes:Answer Key: Options B and C are correct. The customer will own a perpetual license for the then-current version. They can sign a new enrollment, if they want to, and begin acquiring Software Assurance on all their licenses that were previously covered under Software Assurance.Moreover, customers are required to count licenses added in the last year, and to make a payment. There is no final payment on the original licenses, because they have made three payments, but there is a final True-up and payment for those licenses added in the final year of the enrollment.Options B and C are correct.
