Microsoft Server and Cloud Enrolment (SCE)

Wednesday 14th August 2013

We can confirm the new introduction of the Server and Cloud Enrolment (SCE) under the Microsoft Enterprise Agreement.

How This May Affect Your Organisation

The new Server and Cloud Enrolment (SCE) is due for general availability in November 2013 and will eventually replace the current EAP, ECI and EWA enrolments which are now due before the end of 2013.These changes will affect different organisations in different ways, depending on the current Microsoft technologies deployed and the Licensing Agreements in place. For some, this may be an ideal opportunity to bring forward Microsoft projects and take advantage of the current EAP and ECI, EWA agreements before they retire. For others, it may be a good time to review the benefits of the new SCE due in November 2013.
