Hi Everyone,

Was with Microsoft at their EBC recently.  A high-level summary.  We are a
Google campus, so we are going to ride out our contract until we need to
move to the new model.


   - Reinventing Productivity (Office 365)/New Licensing Suites
   -
      - "Microsoft 365" for higher education
      -
         - Office 365, Windows 10, Enterprise Mobility + Security (InTune)
      - Discussion about Microsoft listening to feedback
      - Microsoft 365 Education Suites
      -
         - Office A1 - FREE
         -
            - Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Skype for Business,
            Office Online
         - Microsoft 365 A3 - PAID
         - Microsoft 365 A5 - PAID
      - Student Use Benefit (on PAID version)
      -
         - Office client apps
         - Advanced Security Management
         - Advanced Threat Detection (can work with other email clients)
         - Intune for Education
         - Windows 10 Education
         - Azure Active Directory Premium (Plans 1 & 2)
         - Advanced Threat Analytics
         - Minecraft: Education Edition
      - Microsoft 365 vs Education Desktop
      -
         - Education Desktop - Office Pro Plus (with rights to Office 365
         ProPlus) + Windows SA + Windows CALs + Productivity CALs
         - Microsoft 365 A3 - Office 365 A3 (with rights to Office Pro
         Plus) + Windows A3 + EMS E3 + Minecraft: Education Edition +
Windows CALS +
         Productivity CALs + Productivity Server Licenses
         -
            - Differences between A3 and A5 - Office 365 A5 = ATP (Advanced
            Threat Protection), TI, Advanced Computing, Power BI Pro,
MyAnlaytics,
            Cloud PBX & PSTN Conf; EMS E5 = AADP P2, AIPP P2, Cloud
App Security;
            Windows 10 Education A5, Windows Defender ATP
         - Eliminate complex calculation and simplify user definitions
      -
         - Prior Model - "complex” calculation of "full-time equivalent"
         staff
         - Microsoft 365 - “simple" 1:1 count of "knowledge workers" (light
         users covered for free)
      - Integrated Services (* "Integrated" solution is the emphasis here)
      -
         - Identity and Access Management
         - Threat Protection
         -
            - URL re-writing
         - Information Protection
         - Security Management
      - Discussion about Proof Point for Office 365
      -
         - Threat detection for Office 365 and email



Regards,

Orlando
