Benefit of EA over select, select you pay for full year.New renewal pricing better reflects customers existing investmentThe key features of the Enterprise Agreement 6.0 are mostly unchanged from As a quick overview, the key elements are:Payments spread out in equal annual installments, over the term of the enrollment, payable on each anniversary date.A selection of Platform Enterprise Products that the customer orders for all of their desktops.The non-platform Enterprise Products are those products that a customer orders for all of their desktops and gets a discount over the Select pricing. These products are not part of the core platform.There is also a selection of other products that a customer can add to their EA, known as Additional Products.For EAs, there is what is sometimes referred to as an ‘evergreen’ or open-ended agreement term. The customer can continue to add enrollments to the agreement at any time, without ever having to renegotiate the core agreement terms.There continues to be an annual true up, so customers can add desktops at any time during the year, but report and pay for them at the anniversary date, rather than have to pay for those desktops every time they are added.And of course, for all of the products purchased under the EA, the customer is entitled to any new versions that are released during the term of the enrollment.No change in types of product offerings from 5.0Enterprise products are products ordered for every desktop; Additional Products don’t have that standardization requirementTwo types Ent productsplatform ent products (win, off, core)Non-platform Enterprise Products (Visio std & Project Central)An Enterprise Product license is one which a customer orders for all of their entity’s eligible desktops. Platform Enterprise Products are specifically the collection of products that make up the Microsoft platform: Windows desktop, Office, and Core CAL. A Customer must choose at least one of the three platform Enterprise products.A non-platform Enterprise Product is one that is also standardized across all desktops, but it is not part of the Microsoft platform. As a result, it is not eligible for a platform discount, which is discussed in a later slide.The non-platform Enterprise Product offerings for EA 6.0 are Visio Standard and Project Central.Additional Products are those products that a customer can order on their EA, but they don’t need to purchase them for all of their desktops. We’ll cover additional products in more detail in a few slides. Can just add them to the EA.All products ordered through an EA include the Software Assurance benefits for the term of the enrollment.EA Price Changes Effective 10/1 Replacing BackOffice CAL with Core CAL reduces Server Component EA priceDesktop and Windows Component price goes upMicrosoft negotiates final price directly.Eliminates two tier negotiationsOverall effect is slight net decreaseRenewal pricing available effective May 10thEA Pricing and Payment Rules Enterprise ProductsPrice levels per pool set at signing by initial Enterprise Product ordersPrices set at signing (including true up pricing)Payments for initial order amortized annually over termAdditional ProductsPrice levels per pool set at signing by Enterprise ProductsLevel A for any remaining poolsPrices set at initial purchase (including true up pricing)Three components: price level, price, paymentInitial purchase benefits:Set price per level for termAmortized over termPayable at each anniversaryPurchase made later must be paid as single lump sumPurchases made at signing have the benefit of establishing a set price per level for all future purchases.
