Microsoft has introduced a software licensing deal for schools which could generate significant savings on operating systems and office productivity software, says Computing.co.uk.
The Subscription Enrolment Schools Pilot would provide schools who wish to use Microsoft software with improved opportunities to achieve greater value for money, according to Stephen Crowne, chief executive of the British Educational Communications and Technology Agency, the organisation that advises schools on their IT plans.
"It will also make it easier for such schools to use a mix of proprietary and open source products as they see fit," said Crowne.
