How to buy and deploy Microsoft Dynamics AX

Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 is now available in Enterprise Agreements (EAs), Enterprise Agreement Subscription (EAS), and Campus and School Agreement—Enrollment for Education Solutions (CASA-EES) under Volume Licencing. The EA is appropriate for organisations with more than 250 PCs, devices, and/or users.

At the onset of your agreement, pricing is based on a tiered volume discount structure, meaning that the greater the size of the customer organisation, the less it will pay for individual licences. In addition, the cost of your EA may be spread across three annual payments, helping you to predict future budget requirements.
