Licensing School provide a new approach to learning and understanding the rules around Microsoft software licensing. Their aim is to surface useful and timely information around software licensing, and to underpin this with relevant and up to date resources.
As software licensing continues to become more flexible, it also becomes more complex.
Licensing School have built a reputation on developing training materials and resources which remove complexity and deliver simple and clear explanations to help you to really understand licensing.
Microsoft sell a wide range of products across traditional software, Online Services and Azure, and there are a substantial number of agreements that customers can purchase them through.
With so many different products, the rules for how you acquire licences for the these are often diverse, complicated; and can differ dependent on how the licences are purchased.
The licensing information for all of these different products and agreements is spread across many documents and websites, and this makes it really difficult to find them when you need them, let alone learn try and learn the rules.
