Microsoft’s evolving Licensing: October 2016

Conclusion: On 1st October, Microsoft introduced a number of changes to its licensing regime, changed the names of several products, added two new packages under the new Secure Productive Enterprise (SPE) portfolio and introduced new licensing rights1.

The new licensing packages are aimed at taking organisations on a journey off Cap-Ex (persistent) licensing for devices, toward Op-Ex (subscription) licensing for users.

Understanding the new Secure Productive Enterprise licensing packages is essential for organisations embarking on a move to digital workspaces, and those renegotiating Enterprise Agreements (EAs) within the next nine months.
