Licensing Solutions

Acquiring and managing your organization’s software can be particularly challenging, especially for complex licensing agreements. These require not only an understanding of the technologies being purchased, but more often than not, also legal and financial considerations, as well as specific knowledge of legislation and banking processes of the country where the licenses are being purchased. Therefore, software acquisition and management can involve not only the IT Department but the also the Procurement and Legal Departments.

Given these complexities your organization either needs to develop internal skills to have a thorough understanding of software licensing or it can partner with a company that specializes in this subject matter, thus allowing your organization to focus on its core business. This is the role that Menshen can assume as our Licensing Team can work closely with your organization to clarify the complexities of the many agreements offered by the software manufacturers we represent. Our team can help you choose the right agreement, and reduce the burden of contract management in order to ensure that your organization has made the correct decision regarding any licensing purchase.

Menshen provides the following models of Microsoft Licensing Agreements

Open License is a good choice if you are a corporate, academic, charitable, or government organization that wants to pay as you go. You must have a minimum initial purchase of five software licenses for an Open License agreement, but you can acquire additional licensed products through Open License in any quantity at any time during the two-year agreement term.
Open Value is the recommended program if you have a small to midsize organization with five or more desktop PCs 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 training, deployment planning, software upgrades, and product support help you boost the productivity of your entire organization.
Open Value Subscription provides the lowest up-front costs of the Open Program options with the flexibility to reduce the total licensing costs in years when the desktop PC count declines This option gives your organization the rights to run the software throughout your organization only during the term of the agreement with Microsoft.
Menshen is a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner with specific licensing capabilities as well as a Microsoft Enterprise Direct Advisor (EDA) role. This is the highest distinction in this sector for Angola, and is the only one that allows licensing of Enterprise Agreements, available for businesses with more than 250 desktop computers. To find out more about Microsoft Enterprise Agreements, contact us to speak with one of our specialists. Alternatively, simply fill in the information request form above and we will be in touch.
Microsoft Enterprise Agreement and Microsoft Enterprise Agreement Subscription programs differ in the fact that for the former licenses are purchased permanently, while the licenses acquired under the subscription model only allow usage of the licensed software within the validity term of the agreement. Thus, Enterprise Agreement is a purchase of software products by installments whereas the Enterprise Agreement Subscription is more suitable for organizations that prefer leasing of the software with annual payments for the use of it.
The Server and Cloud Enrollment (SCE) is a new enrollment under the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement. The SCE provides a new option for highly committed customers that enables them to standardize broadly on one or more key Server and Cloud technologies from Microsoft.

The Server and Cloud Enrollment offers four components:
Core Infrastructure, Application Platform, Developer Platform, and Windows Azure. Customers can choose any of these components individually or group them as needed. When choosing any of the first three components, customers will also have access to Windows Azure at the best pricing available.
