Microsoft Desktop Education -
With the Education Desktop, connecting and collaborating can be easier than ever, thanks to the powerful combination. These easy-to-use tools can help students and educators stay connected from virtually anywhere so they can communicate more clearly and bring ideas to life more quickly. And they can do so in a more secure and easier-to-manage environment. MICROSOFT OPEN VALUE SUBSCRIPTION OPTION With the Subscription option, you pay a single price per desktop (five desktop minimum) to deploy Microsoft technology as the standard across your organization, just as with the Company-wide option. However, the Subscription option provides you with rights to run the software only during the term of the agreement with Microsoft (nonperpetual). SOFTWARE ASSURANCE Microsoft's Software Assurance gives you automatic access to new technology and provides productivity benefits, support, tools, and training to help deploy and use software efficiently. With Software Assurance, you receive access to new versions of licensed software released during the term of your agreement to deploy at your own pace. New Version Rights simplifies the procurement process and shortens the business process cycle, allowing you to reduce the costs associated with acquiring new version releases and immediately take advantage of the latest technology.
