Microsoft's Open Value Program

Open Value

The Open Value program is a flexible and affordable way to use and manage Microsoft licensed products under a single agreement. The program is a three-year term commitment that includes Software Assurance as a fixed benefit. The Open Value program has the following three options to choose from.

Company-wide Option

Open Value Company-wide offers commercial and government organizations additional savings when they standardize all of their desktop PCs on one or more Microsoft enterprise products. With this single platform option, you can customize your desktop PCs by choosing separate components, including the desktop operating system, Microsoft Office suites, and CAL suites, plus additional software products selected in your agreement that include the following platform product options:

  • Desktop operating system: Windows Pro Upgrade
  • Microsoft Office suite: Microsoft Office Professional Plus
  • CAL suites: Microsoft Core CAL Suite, Windows Small Business Server CAL Suite, and Enterprise CAL Suite

The Open Value Company-wide option includes discounts on company (organization)-wide deployment.

Non–Company-wide Option

If you need licenses for servers or for a limited number of desktop PCs, you can open a Non–Company-wide Agreement for any product license purchases.
