Home IT Asset Management Software

by | June 20, 2016

If you are a Microsoft Enterprise Agreement (EA) customer you will probably already appreciate the advantages it gives you with regard to licensing flexibility when you deploy new hardware and software. But, as it is a trust-based contract, it requires certain commitments from your end.

Specifically, you have to inventory new hardware and software deployed since the last anniversary to meet your requirements. You then need to send to Microsoft one of the following:

  • A statement declaring no change to qualified hardware/software since the last anniversary
  • A true-up order for any increase in qualified hardware/software since the last anniversary

What needs to be trued-up?

You need to account for any increase in qualified desktops, qualified users, and/or additional products run since the last anniversary.
