Lot of Indian customers are using Microsoft licensed products but are not aware of what those products are fully capable of doing for them and for their businesses in terms of productivity. We at Sujata Computers Pvt Ltd feel sad when we see organizations investing lakhs and crores of rupees in Microsoft technologies but not making their optimum use.

Microsoft themselves sell support services called 'Software Assurance' i.e SA which can be bought along with any product license of Microsoft, of course at some additional 20-30% of the license cost.


Why You Should Consider Software Assurance (SA) For Your Organization?

There are below benefits of buying Software Assurance along with the product license -

  1. New software versions - You get product version upgrades at a free of cost when SA subscription is alive. For example, if you are using Windows 8 and Microsoft launches Windows 9, you can download and start using Windows 9 without paying a penny from your pocket.
  2. Planning services where you get onsite consulting services to create a deployment plan when you are getting ready to deploy new software. This service is available for desktop products (Office & Windows), SharePoint, Exchange and OCS. You can also use Business Planning services to help you get more efficiency out of your software solution.
  3. Training vouchers for technical, classroom training to help you keep your IT staff up to date. The number of vouchers that customer will get depends upon the number of license and the type of product license. Training vouchers can be redeemed with the help of Sujata Computers Pvt Ltd.
  4. E-Learning is online training to get your users trained on new software to prepare for a new software implementation, or to help them be more productive on current software.
  5. Home Use Program (HUP) provides a license of Office, at a minimal cost, to employees for their home computers allowing them to become more proficient with the software they use at work, when they are using it at home. Microsoft takes the support calls for the home use licenses so it can also help reduce the support calls going to your IT staff.
  6. 24x7 phone and web support to help you keep your IT infrastructure up and running. Customer gets number of support calls depending on number of license and type of product license bought. Each call is worth around $500.
  7. TechNet for Software Assurance subscription to provide a community of information for all of your IT issues and questions.
  8. Microsoft Office Multi Language Pack, which enables you to deploy a single image of Office with support for 37 languages.
  9. Licensing programs like OVL, Select Plus, EA allows you to step up the license edition so as to standardize your infrastructure. For example, you can use Office Professional Plus edition (highest edition available) over Office Standard if you have purchased SA along with Office Standard.
  10. You get an access to Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP) which Sujata will help you deploy. MDOP is a set of technologies help manage PCs and make deployments across the network easy.

Do note that entitlement to above benefits will depend on the licensing program under which SA is to be purchased. Details of which licensing program gives what benefits given in below image.

We recommend our customers to take trainings, to take our help in implementation even if their own IT team is capable of doing things. Please contact us.Microsoft-SA-Benefits-Sujata-Computers-Pvt-Ltd

In today’s tech savvy world, where systems are getting automated, it is leaving vulnerable points which render an organization prone to data leak. We will do critical analysis sector wise to pinpoint the leak points and ways to plug them. Today I am picking up manufacturing sector for critical analysis

End Users – It can be anyone designing team, people from R&D department, data entry executive, receptionist etc. There is possibility of malware infection through internet and spreading it in local area network and crashing down the entire network. Apart from that it might be possible that they might try to send documents or critical organization data through USB, mails or web. This can be prevented by using Antiviruses, data loss prevention, web and Messaging gateway protection. Hard disc, file and folder and removable USB level Encryption

Accounts/Finance Department – This department handles one of the most critical assignments of an organization and that is to manage the entire financial dealing and transactions. Any leakage of financial details might prove detrimental to the organization. This department is prone to phishing attack. . Antiviruses, data loss prevention, web and messaging gateway protection, Hard disc, file and folder and removable USB level Encryption  endpoint to endpoint encryption with two factor authentication will provide adequate security to this department.

Human Resource department – Human resource department has under its possession entire record of the employees. As manufacturing sector is labour intensive sector so every company has long list of labours doing blue collar and white collar jobs.  Companies doling out financial services are always on prowl for these type of database.  Security becomes necessary. Antiviruses, data loss prevention, messaging gateway protection, hard disc, file and folder and removable USB level Encryption becomes critical necessity of this department.

Sales and marketing Dept. – This department generates revenue for an organization. They have data of their clients and their requirements. As personals from this department remains mobile. So BYOD is gaining currency among them. . Antiviruses, data loss prevention, web and messaging gateway protection, Hard disc, file and folder and removable USB level Encryption  , gateway to end point mail  encryption , mobile device management, mobile application management coupled with two factor authentication will provide adequate protection to the devices, application and data.

IT Department – This department manages the entire IT infrastructure of an organization. It has to manage server infrastructure, networking, end points of the users.  Its role becomes critical in the sense that if it gets down then functioning of the entire organization will come down to notch. The first product which is of extreme importance for them is back up software for end points and servers. Second is archiving and third is solution for hardware and software inventory management.

Top Management – This level of management is privy to secrets of all the above mentioned departments. Any IT admin can’t stop them from accessing there date/mails etc from their own device or from home. Security becomes critical as any intentional or unintentional loss of data, documents can have a devastating effect on the entire organization. Antiviruses, data loss prevention, web and messaging gateway protection, Hard disc, file and folder and removable USB level Encryption  endpoint  to end point  mail  encryption , mobile device management, mobile application management coupled with two factor authentication will provide adequate protection to the devices, applications and data.
