Microsoft`s mission is to transfer its customers within the traditional on-premise software company to its subscription-based cloud services. Revenue from its cloud commercial offerings is growing strongly, while traditional software sales are declining and the mix is weighing on Microsoft`s ability to support a multi-faceted business. Microsoft`s success will be measured against the success of this mission, and customers will be under increased pressure to travel to the cloud or to pay for on-prime-price solutions through increased contract and price complexity. Most customers have managed the jump to 365 and are experimenting with azure. The good news is that the window of agreement for new cloud editions with Microsoft is still open. While the vendor`s cloud offerings may be the future of its business, most Microsoft customers are still operationally and contractually blocked in on-premise deployments. If you already have a Microsoft Azure Enterprise agreement, just contact us and we will guide you through the process of creating the subscription and providing the solution. If you are interested in creating a Microsoft Azure EA, let us know and we`ll contact you with your Microsoft Azure sales team, who can help you get the first information. Either way, it`s a simple process to guarantee the lowest price for an Azure-based enterprise video management solution. As more and more large companies use Azure Cloud, especially those that have traditionally used Microsoft tools, I have observed that interest in Microsoft Azure Enterprise Agreements, commonly known as EAs, is growing. I thought it would be useful to know more about Microsoft EAs, how they work with Azure and what they mean for both the company and the ISV.
There are increasingly licensing and subscription optimization challenges in Microsoft transactions, as well as new cost, flexibility and licensing/subscription opportunities you can capitalize on. As Microsoft continues to make a transformation and business demands and usage requirements are changing rapidly, customers should prepare for a more demanding purchasing and supplier management environment. I am looking for a guide on the relative benefits of both approaches.
