Software Assurance sur OEM

On peut (encore) çà ne va plus durer longtemps, vendre la software assurance sur de l’Office OEM dans les 90 jours de l’acquisition, et transformer ainsi une licence OEM liée à la machine à une licence Open liée à l’Entreprise … 2 Produits sont actuellement éligibles: Office 2007 PME et Office 2007 Professionnel

Et donc, comme je l’affirme depuis longtemps, la licence n’est plus liée au PC …

Si la machine décède – la licence est transférable sur une autre machine grâce à la SA.

Software Assurance

Microsoft Software Assurance is an offering that provides benefits that can include new version rights and access to differentiated technologies and use rights for the Products for which it is acquired, spread payments, consulting services, training, support and access to exclusive offerings. For details on each of the benefits and policies, refer to the Software Assurance (SA) Benefits Appendix of this document. For details on use rights for benefits, refer to the Product Use Rights for Volume Licensing. Available in the following programs:

  • Open License
  • Open Value
  • Select License
  • Select Plus
  • Enterprise Agreement 6.X or 200x Agreements.

There are three different levels of commitment for which a customer can select for Software Assurance.  The available levels vary by program.  A customers Software Assurance commitment level is one of many factors that can determine a customer’s benefit entitlement.  A customer can

1. Commit to attaching Software Assurance on all of their platform products.  This is most commonly available in the Enterprise Agreement and Open Value.

2. Commit to attaching Software Assurance on all of their purchases under a particular product pool (Applications, Systems or Servers).  This is referred to as Software Assurance Membership (SAM). This does not require a companywide commitment on Software Assurance. This is most commonly available in Select.

3. Purchase Software Assurance on individual products without making any commitment to expanding their purchases of Software Assurance to other products.

Software Assurance must be acquired at the time of acquiring the License or upon renewal of an existing Software Assurance term. Refer to the renewal rules appendix and specific program agreement for eligibility rules for acquiring Software Assurance.

Customers may have the option to acquire Software Assurance for certain licenses purchased from the Retail channel (full packaged product) or from an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). Eligibility varies by program, product pool and the license source (see below).  In all cases, only licenses for the latest version of a product are eligible, and the Software Assurance must be acquired “within 90 days” from the date the licenses are acquired.  Under Open Value, this option applies only to non Company-wide products.  Under Enterprise Agreements, it applies only to Additional Products “within 90 days”.

Du neuf dans SBS 2008 (pour revendeur)

C’est vrai, Windows 7 et Office 2010 éclipsent SBS 2008. C’est dans la logique des choses, il y a bien plus de desktop que de serveurs … Toutefois, l’équipe produit SBS 2008 chez Microsoft à Seattle n’est pas inactive.  Ils ont même créé dans une discrétion absolue (entendez par là, fqire dans un coin et surtout ne rien dire) deux petites merveilles que je vous invite à découvrir…
