Keys to Understanding Microsoft Volume Licensing
To choose the optimal approach for your organisation, you must first understand the major characteristics of Volume Licensing policies and programs. Areas for consideration:
The size and type of your organisation
The products you want to license
The way in which you want to use those products
Microsoft tailors some of its programs to meet the needs of specific industries, depending on the primary function of the organisation. For example, public sector organisations such as schools and universities.
For smaller organisations, the Open programs provide a simple, cost effective way to acquire the latest Microsoft technology.
