SLA Performance Ltd is helping schools transition from the ‘School Enrolment’ Microsoft licensing scheme to the new ‘Enrolment for Education Solutions’ (EES). This transition is likely to free up IT budgets so that savings can be spent on higher priority projects.
SLA Performance Ltd can work closely with IT staff to analyse the school infrastructure, produce diagrams, decision papers, and a final licensing report that comprehensively describes the licensing compliance of the school’s IT landscape.
High-level comparison of licensing schemes:
- The Enrolment for Education Solutions (EES) is available to both primary/secondary and higher education institutions and offers the simplicity of counting people instead of PCs/devices and the flexibility to add additional products in any quantity as needed.
- The School Enrolment is for primary/secondary schools and pre-schools and offers the simplicity of licensing all products organization-wide where you can order any product for a quantity that matches the annual count of your organization’s PCs/devices.
