We optimize Microsoft licensing, ensuring that our customers get the most out of their Microsoft investment, without over- or under-licensing, at the lowest cost. Other services include retainer contracts that provide as-you-need-it expert advice and Enterprise Agreement negotiation services

Public Commentary

The full impact of Microsoft's licensing policies can't be understood by just reading the rules. They have broad impacts on organizations and even the IT industry itself. Our commentaries, published on this site and elsewhere, give you unique insight into licensing issues.
