Software License Promotions and Microsoft

March 16, 2009

As a member of the esteemed Microsoft Partner Program, Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans is regularly bombarded with tons of Microsoft U.S. Partner email.  Recently, Microsoft cut the price of leasing its software by as much as 25%.  To be honest, Microsoft’s special promotions are difficult to monitor; however the Microsoft Incentives Web site is generally a starting point for information regarding present promotions.

When clients of Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans investigate the latest Microsoft promotions, the term ‘Software Assurance’ becomes a central topic of discussion.  Microsoft is apparently pushing Microsoft Software Assurance as a condition of Microsoft license agreements.  Some contend Software Assurance can add as much as $100 per year to the cost of operating a Microsoft PC.

Another offer is for between 15 percent and 25 percent off the price of the license and the Software Assurance costs of running Exchange Server, Office Communications Server, SQL Server, Office SharePoint Server, Visual Studio, Office Project, and other Microsoft software.

Many who monitor the situation contend there is a problem with Microsoft’s apparent lack of special offers promotion.  Software Assurance is not a household term and many allege Microsoft should devote additional resources to their Software Assurance marketing effort.
