    US Department Of Defense Signs $617 Million Enterprise License Agreement With Microsoft

    US Defense Department has announced a joint enterprise license agreement for Microsoft products worth $617 million for a period of over 3 years.

    As a result, all the Defense Department users can avail Microsoft Office 2013, SharePoint 2013, Windows 8 and Windows Server products as well.

    Microsoft is committed to making sure that the technology within the agreement has a mobile-first focus, and DOD expects to begin to take advantage of Microsoft’s mobile offerings as part of our enterprise mobility ecosystem.”

    • SharePoint is big with them. They also want an operating environment that works seamlessly between platforms (desktop, tablet, phone, server) and geographic locations, something that will make almost everyone happy - no balkanization. MS works well in large organizations, and Windows 8 will eventually increase in popularity - take a tablet to a meeting, all your docs are available during the meeting, and notes from the meeting are instantly available on phone and desktop, and to others via SharePoint and/or cloud. Phones that don't break easily (i.e., Nokia) and easy battery recharging (Nokia) will make Nokia phones attractive.

      For large organizations, what's not to like?

    • I guess the mf's did not notice that one.LOL
