        The Yankee Group recently profiled several organizations—among them a media and entertainment conglomerate, an Ivy League university, and a law firm—to discover how each has lowered its total cost of ownership (TCO) and derived immediate return on investment (ROI) from its purchase of Microsoft Software Assurance. This document explains the results of the Yankee Group’s research.

        Based on survey data and anecdotal evidence obtained from conversations with individual users, the Yankee Group estimates Software Assurance incremental benefits are worth from $8000 to $10,000 USD for smaller businesses with as few as 100 users. These benefits could be worth hundreds of thousands—and even millions—of dollars for very large enterprises with more than 100,000 end users.
