Use New Product Versions to:
Improve productivity using the latest Microsoft software
Lower the costs of acquiring new product versions
Simplify software licensing, budgeting and administration
With New Product Versions you get access to new software versions as soon as they are released for no additional cost.
When the software comes out, we
just start testing and moving into production. It’s a much quicker
deal because it’s already covered under SA.

Before you use:
Evaluate Your Upgrade Options
With New Product Versions, every Microsoft product license that is covered by Software Assurance can be upgraded to the most recent version.
For example, if a new version of Microsoft Office is made available during the term of your coverage, your licenses will automatically be upgraded to the new version. Customers that acquire perpetual licenses through Software Assurance can deploy the upgrades after their coverage has expired.
As an additional Software Assurance benefit, if you have Software Assurance coverage on the Windows desktop operating system, you have access to the Windows 7 Enterprise operating system, which is available exclusively to Software Assurance customers.
