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.

La confirmation se trouve dans le texte anglais ci après …

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”.

Une réflexion au sujet de « Software Assurance sur OEM »

  1. Bonjour Alex,

    On s’est croisés hier à la journée Connectik.

    Au sujet de l’OEM, j’ai un nouveau client dont je reprends le parc, et il a actuellement une quinzaine de PC sous XP Pro en OEM.
    Pas encore question de tout passer à Windows 7 ou 8.

    Mon 1er besoin : faire un Master Windows XP Pro pour pouvoir réinstaller les machines de façon standard.

    Puis-je acheter 1 Software Assurance WIndows Pro (seule, sans la licence) pour avoir le droit de masteriser Windows XP Pro sur toutes ses machines? Car après tout, ses machines ont déjà la licence Windows, tout ce qu’il me faudrait c’est la possibilité de réinstaller tous les postes avec une clef de licence unique.
    Mais je ne sais pas si je dois acheter une seule licence Open Windows Pro, ou 15 licences Open Windows Pro ou 1 Software Assurance Windows Pro, ou 15 SA, ou 15 L+SA… Un conseil?

    Ensuite si je souhaite passer une machine XP Pro OEM en W7 Pro « Open », que faire? Là je dois racheter la licence Open je pense? Avoir seulement la SA ne suffit pas?

    Merci.

    David
