Microsoft Open Value Company-wide Licensing Program

Microsoft Open Value Company-Wide (OVW) is a volume licensing program that allows you to purchase licenses in installments for 3 years. Licenses procurement is accompanied by signing a 3-year Open Value Agreement between Microsoft and the purchaser (organization). The Open Value Company-wide offers substantial cost savings over Open Value Non-Company-wide pricing, as well as simplified license and budget tracking through standardization on the latest Microsoft technology across the enterprise. The term of the Agreement is 3 years. The agreement is in electronic form on the website eAgeements.

The program offers a full range of products for business - operating systems, desktop applications, server products, development tools. The Windows operating system is offered only as an upgrade license (Upgrade).

The Open Value Company Wide Agreement contains a mandatory section Basic Products, which includes CAL, Office and Windows Upgrade licenses. Licenses for Basic Products are offered at a reduced price in exchange for the customer's obligation to license all of their PCs in the organization. A set of licenses from 3 Base products is called Platform. Licenses included in the Platform have the lowest price. All other OVW licenses that are not included in the Basic Products section are absolutely identical to the OVL licenses – and can be purchased for any number of computers.

OVW licenses provide perpetual rights to use current and previous versions of products. The cost of the licenses includes a subscription to the Microsoft Software Assurance (SA) support program, which provides the right to upgrade to new versions of products and some additional benefits during the validity period of the OV Agreement (3 years). Upon termination of the Agreement, you can purchase single licenses for SA renewal. The rights to use the products provided by the OVW licenses are set forth in the official Microsoft Product Terms (MPT) document.
