Computer Associates has two main licensing programs:
The CA Open License Program (OLP) is an easy-to-use, cost-effective purchasing program designed to meet the needs of businesses of all sizes. OLP reduces costs and streamlines the acquisition, implementation, deployment, and maintenance of CA software and services. And now it's even easier for you to qualify for these discounts, and easier for you to install and to register your new software.
With OLP, it is even easier than ever to benefit from licensing. You can buy a broad range of CA Solutions without the product pool restrictions often associated with licensing.
Step 1: You make a purchase from our solution area -- no minimum point purchase is required.
Step 2: You purchase Maintenance, education, etc.
Step 3: You reorder additional CA solutions and benefit from your program discount for two years.
CA's Government License Program (GLP) is a premiere, world-class licensing program that offers government agencies, academic institutions and non-profit organizations substantial discounts, without the obligation of making volume purchases. GLP's streamlined process offers the quickest, easiest way to purchase licensing for large environments by reducing the paperwork and administrative headaches associated with traditional contract licensing programs! Furthermore, with no minimum purchase requirements, cost of software ownership is reduced and redundancy is avoided.
Through GLP, government agencies, academic institutions and non-profit organizations are able to purchase designated BrightStor Storage solutions, CA Security Solutions, AllFusion Data Modeling Solutions, and select Unicenter products, all at substantial discounts.
Step 1: Make a purchase from our solutions area -- no minimum points purchase is required
Step 2: Purchase your choice of program options which include Maintenance and Educational software training.
Step 3: Continue to purchase additional CA solutions at the GLP discount for 2 years.
