Do not sign a Microsoft Software Assurance (SA) contract without using the many valuable benefits associated with the agreement. The ROI on unused features is zero. This research note identifies how to improve the ROI of SA contracts through better management and administration of SA benefits. Discussion points include:

  • The main three benefits enterprises receive via their SA subscriptions.
  • Advice for activating, monitoring, and administering SA benefits through the appointment of a Benefits Administrator.

The value of a SA subscription is significantly reduced if the enterprise cannot or is not willing to use all included features. A diligent SA Benefits Administrator can help target areas of low usage, push benefits to employees, and improve the overall value proposition. This position should be assigned to the appropriate person as part of their job duties.
