Introducing the new Enrollment for Education Solutions The Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES) has been modernized to simplify and standardize how you license Microsoft cloud services and software. With EES, you get broader access to cloud services, the ability to more accurately direct technology spend, and enhanced benefits with tools and resources to help you manage your institution while empowering your faculty to innovate. EES is now based in cloud services, but it enables you to maintain an on-premises environment so you can migrate to the cloud at your own pace. By moving to a per user model, we’ve simplified and standardized coverage calculations and updated user definitions so your technology spend will more accurately reflect the usage of Microsoft cloud services and software. With an expanded set of student use benefits and access to free online services for light users, you get more value for your organization-wide commitment.
