Below are a few excerpts from the article, “Microsoft 365 License Strategy Tips to Unlock Optimal Value.
Tailor Licensing Plan to Business Needs
“Approaching Microsoft licensing with a solid game plan based on business needs and goals will help organizations maximize the value of their investments. Consider both the business size and the level of services and support needed. Then carefully compare the features and benefits of the different plans to find the best fit.”
Mix and Match Microsoft 365 Subscriptions
“Not all users or devices in the organization will necessarily need the same access to applications and features. Consequently, Microsoft allows businesses to purchase different types of licenses for different users, according to their roles and responsibilities.”
“Mixing and matching licenses can help businesses optimize their IT spending by ensuring that the organization does not pay for unused features. It can also enhance security and compliance by controlling access to advanced features such as eDiscovery or business analytics.”
Annual License Agreement vs. Flexible Monthly Pricing
“Beginning last year, Microsoft introduced some changes to Microsoft licensing. Organizations can enter into a 12-month licensing agreement at a set cost. Alternatively, they can enjoy the flexibility of pay-as-you-go plans. These allow the business to add or delete licenses as needed, but they come with a 20 percent surcharge.”
Purchase Microsoft 365 Licenses through a Microsoft Partner
Purchasing and managing subscriptions through a Microsoft partner can deliver substantial benefits. For example, eMazzanti Cloud Marketplace offers flexible payment and reporting options not available directly through Microsoft. And with eMazzanti Technologies, customers get a dedicated account manager to help them sort through the maze of options and features.
