Navigating Microsoft licensing can be a massive undertaking. Between on-premises, hybrid, and cloud, you’re probably investing a hefty sum with Microsoft and need to get the most out of your contract. Our experts have worked with hundreds of Microsoft clients and have seen it all. We’re here to help.
Do these Microsoft challenges sound familiar?
- SAM tools don't capture all the information you need across all the Microsoft software editions to accurately measure consumption
- Microsoft’s specific software license rights are tied to software assurance like license mobility, failover, and disaster recovery
- Growing product suites with multiple items bundled together are confusing and can run the risk of paying for software you will never use
Get the most out of your Microsoft estate.
