What Is MLO?
Microsoft Licensing Optimization (MLO) is a progression of licensing analyses designed to offer clarity and control over your Microsoft licensing investments. These analyses, backed by a wealth of resources and expert guidance, enable you to make sound licensing investments—and to keep those investments strong over time. Using the MLO process, our team has helped customers save millions of dollars.
The MLO Process Defined
The Microsoft Licensing Optimization process includes four distinct components:
- Microsoft Licensing Statement (MLS) Baseline Analysis:
A comprehensive overview of your entitlements, broken down into easy-to-understand components and backed by expert commentary.
- Deployment Blueprint:
A discovery and documentation process that uncovers everything we need to know about your Microsoft plans in order to help you achieve the best return on your investment.
- Options Analysis:
A sophisticated translation of your Baseline Analysis and Blueprint into viable licensing options. Our Options Analysis is fluid and dynamic, evolving over time as you refine your choices, engage with Microsoft, and make decisions.
- Concierge Services:
A successful licensing investment requires constant attention from your partner. That’s why we offer continual care over the life of your agreement to ensure your investment stays aligned with your needs.
