You also get the benefits of Software Assurance Membership, including support resources, tools, and eLearning courses.MICROSOFT SELECT PLUSWhen it comes to licensing software and getting the most value from software investments, customers have asked for a Microsoft Volume Licensing solution that offers more flexibility, better asset management, and a way to balance growing technology needs with predictable costs.
