Next year, IT buyers will have a new option when it comes to purchasing #Microsoft software and subscribing to the company’s cloud offerings. Just before the long July 4th holiday weekend in the United States, the Redmond, Wash., software giant announced on Friday that it plans to kick off a new Microsoft Products and Services Agreement (MPSA) licensing option in 2017 dubbed Enterprise Advantage. Once Microsoft rolls out the new plan, enterprise software buyers will be able to mix subscription and perpetual software purchases with the company’s cloud services slate, including Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics CRM Online. “Enterprise Advantage on MPSA will offer the same business bargain, including products, pricing, and coverage, as the Enterprise Agreement, plus the added flexibility of the MPSA to align to your purchasing structure and needs,” wrote Richard Smith, general manager of Microsoft Worldwide Licensing and Pricing, in a July 1 blog post. “At launch, Enterprise Advantage on MPSA will be available for all commercial customers in markets where the MPSA is available, but will be the optimal choice for most customers with up to 2,400 users or devices.”
