Licensing, ITAM, SAM, Academy (LISA) from The ITAM Review

What you'll learn

As well as teaching you the licensing rules for the various products, the Microsoft Licensing Training Course also focuses on the SAM and ITAM issues they may represent, such as:

  • How to reduce Windows Server licensing costs
  • Right-sizing Office 365/Microsoft 365 subscriptions for users
  • Azure cost management
  • Working with Enterprise Architects around SQL

Microsoft Licensing Training Course

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

Our Microsoft Licensing 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:

  • Windows Server
  • SQL Server
  • Windows 10
  • Office 365
  • Microsoft 365
  • Azure

And more.

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.
