  3. 3. History of the PML and OS/eCAL• The original PML and OS/eCAL agreements were created in 2006• It was the first Provincial Framework Agreement in Canada – Set the stage for other Provinces and countries around the world – First user-based agreement of its kind for K-12• Licensing was moved to an FTE count from a device model
  4. 4. The Next PLM and OS/eCAL• The new agreement must be signed by May 31, 2013• Focus group has met and discussed what should be included in the next agreement• Our purpose today is to determine what you need in your schools January • Focus group 2013 • New agreement • Consultations with signed • RFP gone out ministry teams • Deployment plan • Presentation to the • RFP drafted strategized and Ministry communicated December May 2013 2012
  5. 5. Additional Microsoft Discussions• The agreement is no longer just about licensing• There are now five components to the agreement that we are discussing with Microsoft• Questions to consider: – Are the programs we’re looking at relevant? – How can it be implemented in your school? – What are we missing? – How can we further add additional efficiencies?

  8. 8. What are the “Must Haves” and the “Niceto Have” Options?• Each table has a piece of paper with the different options available for the next licensing agreement• Mark an “X” beside options that you consider a “Must Have” and are non-negotiable• For the remaining items, mark by priority what you feel is a “Nice to Have” option – Start with #1, then go on to options that are less of a priority Option “Must Have” or “Nice to Have”? Office 365 Plan A3 X IT Academy 2 Parent Licensing Program 1 Home Use Program 3
  9. 9. What the Focus Group Said• Everything that’s included with the current agreement is a “Must Have” and non-negotiable• Office 365 Plan A3 is a “Like to Have”, but may not be for some jurisdictions who have Google Docs• There is value in having a Provincial licensing agreement as it: – Develops consistencies and standards – Gives smaller districts an opportunity that they may not have been able to afford before – Any licensing option that lessens the burden, financially and administratively, is a good thing• Student licensing is a priority (BYOD)• Jurisdictions need a clearer deployment model
  10. 10. Next Steps• If you have any additional thoughts or questions, please contact us directly (emily.daubert@gov.ab.ca)• We will take your suggestions back to Microsoft and develop the next version of the licensing agreements
