Enterprise Advantage on MPSA is a variation of the existing MPSA (Microsoft Products and Services Agreement), due to be introduced in 2017. It is best explained as an organization-wide version of the current MPSA. Similar to how you can have a transactional Open Agreement or you can get an Open Value company-wide agreement.
