There was a time when the Enterprise Agreement (EA) was a simple market strategy, although it was given mainly to the few large software companies – Microsoft, Oracle, IBM – that sold large standardized packages to large companies. In terms of volume, the cost advantages were the main attraction. An Enterprise Agreement (EA) is your quick path to GIS across the organization. An EA gives you unlimited and impractical access to ArcGIS software, as well as fast and competent support from Esri, so you can focus on building a successful and scalable enterprise GIS. In a three-year contract, the number of desktop computers and qualified users can be adjusted for each anniversary of the contract. This allows for greater flexibility to meet changing requirements. Use rights are limited and expire when the contract expires. The enterprise agreement, which is priced at the number of computers or licensed users, is a three-year contract covering all software licenses and customer system updates. If the contract is terminated, an extension of one or three additional years is granted. EA includes unlimited use of Enterprise Infrastructure software for licensed assets under the agreement. Additional offers can be added to an EA for an additional fee or purchased separately depending on the license model of the offer. For more information, contact the OSISoft Account Manager.
Version 2.0 refers to the current active list of products for which customers are allowed by default under an enterprise contract. Changes in today`s business climate, coupled with Microsoft`s mission to relocate businesses to the cloud, are changing the way it does business with its largest customers. Companies considering renewing their enterprise agreements or acquiring supplier offers for the first time can use the forces that fuel Microsoft`s behavior at the negotiating table. You can renew your EA at any time with your updated requirements. Esri is here to meet your needs and help your organization create a successful GIS company. It is not only software providers, but also hardware providers that use this subscription-based business licensing model. Far from declining, the reality is that the percentage of the corporate technology budget invested through the EA model is all the rage. But has the model changed to the point of offering strategic value while remaining in line with the speed of innovation? The answer depends on how a company sees its EA.
