Master The Essentials, And Embrace The Complexity Of Microsoft Licensing With Confidence:

Microsoft licensing is a wide-ranging subject with many products, options, and choices.

Our Microsoft Licensing Essentials Training Course on LISA starts with the areas common to many organisations with the aim to help you get to grips with these subjects and then moves onto some of the more complicated licensing areas such as cloud, developer software, SQL High Availability, License Mobility, and more.

We look at the range of volume licensing programs and the new programs introduced by Microsoft more recently. All the main product sets are here, including:

As the licensing rules change and new products are created, we will add new content to cover them.

However, we won’t remove the previous content – meaning LISA can help you even in situations where you’re working with Microsoft software that isn’t the latest version.

Whether you’re new to the world of Microsoft licensing, looking to learn as much as you can, or you’re more experienced and just need to keep up to date on changes and new additions – LISA has you covered.
