Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA)

The Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) supports organizations with more than 500 users that want to simplify and optimize the licensing of their Microsoft software technology.

The Microsoft EA offers the best value to organizations that want a manageable volume licensing program that gives them the flexibility to buy Online Services & Software licenses under one agreement. In the EA you retain perpetual use rights for software licenses.

Microsoft Enterprise Subscription Agreement (EAS)

The Enterprise Subscription Agreement (EAS) provides similar advantages as the Enterprise Agreement with lower annual costs based on a three-year subscription and the ability to increase or decrease licenses and subscription counts on an annual basis also for on-premises products. This ability to grow or downsize subscription counts supports changes in workforce size and IT requirements. With EAS you gain access to Microsoft Online Services & Software for as long as you maintain your subscriptions.

Microsoft Customer Agreement (MCA)

The Microsoft Customer Agreement defines the usage rights for Online Services and Azure services acquired through Cloud Solution Provider (CSP).

Cloud Solution Provider (CSP)

The Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program aims at customers of all sizes who want to buy Microsoft Online Services on a highly flexible transactional basis. There is no minimum requirement for Online Services subscriptions, and consumption based billing for Azure services without commitment. CSP is the perfect program for short term projects, small and medium sized companies or customers who want to flexibly shift to Microsoft Online Services.

In addition to Online Services you can also buy on-premises software as perpetual licenses or subscriptions through the CSP program.

Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA)

The Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA) combines the transactional purchase of Online Services & Software licenses in one agreement. MPSA is suited for organizations with 250 or more users who want to combine transactional purchases of Microsoft Software licenses and subscriptions of Microsoft Online Services in one contract.

MPSA features include the following:

  • A single indefinite agreement with integrated purchasing for Online Services, Software, and Software Assurance.
  • Purchasing Accounts allow departments or business units to independently purchase and manage Online Services & Software.
  • Purchasing Accounts automatically consolidate Online Services & Software purchases, granting you the best volume discount.

Microsoft Open Value (OV)

Microsoft Open Value (OV) is the recommended program if you have a small to midsize organization with five or more devices and want to simplify license management, manage software costs, and get better control over your investment. It also includes Software Assurance, providing access to valuable benefits such as software upgrades and product support. If you standardize company-wide, you get even better pricing.

Microsoft Open Value Subscription (OVS) provides lower up-front cost with the flexibility to reduce in years when the user count declines. The subscription option gives your organization the rights to run the software only during the term of the agreement.
