Your Enterprise Agreement (EA) includes access to software, tools, and technologies to help you plan and maintain an efficient, cost-effective IT infrastructure. This allows your company to share reports and insights across your business while continuing to innovate and grow on a strong technological foundation.
When you sign an EA, you get the right software for your needs, leading to reduced computing costs and improved organizational and employee productivity. Your EA also gives you access to tools like Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP). MDOP helps your organization leverage a desktop virtualization strategy that can reduce hardware costs and lead to greater efficiency with your IT environment.
