In Simple Terms What’s the Difference Between Select and Enterprise?

The Select Agreement is a simple vehicle for buying individual licenses. You choose the products and also choose to include Software Assurance on those products.

The Enterprise is a way to manage and reduce the cost of your Microsoft Environment –

  • Establish your core products

  • Additional Training and Technical Support for Your Environment

  • Licensed for the most current versions of those products.

  • Direct access to Microsoft for benefits that reduce your total cost of computing.

  • Also, your cost will decrease in years 4,5,6 if you choose to renew the EA agreement
