Roles of the site license advisory team
Roles of the Site License Advisory Team

  • Testing, advice and recommendation of software needs

  • Aiding departments in management of software assets

  • Mitigating associated risks


Microsoft campus agreement
Microsoft Campus Agreement

  • IUC has created and released a reseller RFP for all Higher Education in Ohio

  • Current MS Campus Agreement (exact same terms, exact same products) can be extended, with our same reseller, for one more year.

  • RFP return date for reseller is March 12

  • Once the IUC has made a decision, we can decide whether to move to the new agreement now, or maintain our current agreement.


Mcss and sls where are we
MCSS and SLS – Where are we?

  • Problem products:

    • SSH Secure Shell

    • Eudora

  • SSH has been removed.

  • Eudora is in the process of removal.

    • Removal announced 1/15

    • Product removed from OSU SLS 2/25


Distribution and funding
Distribution and Funding

  • Current model of funding SLS is not working, and is being restructured

  • Funding responsibility will be shifting from Site Licensing to primary users

    • Some of this has already started:

      • SAS, SigmaPlot, and Parallels users are paying 100% of the license

      • Site Licensing is discussing SPSS funding with primary users

  • As products come up for renewal, more shifts will take place

    • Site Licensing is working to find ways to communicate quickly and effectively when new funding sources are required.


Updating osu sls guidelines
Updating OSU SLS Guidelines

  • Guidelines are located at:

    • http://oit.osu.edu/site_license/slat.html

  • Two particular guidelines are in question:

    • Software Site Licensing Policy Guidelines

      • A document from 1990 detailing the tasks of OIT Site Licensing and our interaction with the Regionals.

    • Software Life-Cycle Management Guide

      • A document created/approved by this group detailing best practices for licensing software.

  • We may move forward and seek to create a policy from one or both of these documents
