Comparing Office 365 E1 Plan vs. the Core CAL

 

 

Many clients, especially those with Enterprise Agreements, are being asked by Microsoft to convert their licensing agreements into Office 365 based subscription solutions and are confused by their options.  This comparison is for clients who currently own just the Core CAL (client access license) and are considering moving to an Office 365 E1 plan with a Bridge CAL.  

Let’s start with what is the same.

The Bridge CAL completes the traditional functionality of the Core CAL by licensing you for a Windows CAL, System Center Configuration Manager CML, and the Microsoft EndPoint Protection Antivirus service.

Office 365 Pro Plus – is the version that is sold via Office 365.  Subscriptions for Office 365 can either be purchased directly from the web portal or on a traditional licensing agreement like an Enterprise Agreement, Select, or new MPSA.  It frequently is sold as part of the E3 or E4 packages.

How does Office Delve boost workgroup productivity?

Microsoft Office Delve accomplishes this by making it easy to identify files that you need to work, even when you can’t locate or describe them.
