Institutional/Enterprise Licensing: Achieving Standards by Providing Software to the Institution

Thursday, January 1, 1998

Abstract

Indiana University has been a pioneer in working with vendors (Novell, Corel, Sybase, Microsoft, and many others) to develop an approach to licensing that allows the university to leverage its investment to put the maximum amount of software in the hands of all affiliate students, faculty, and staff. This paper looks at how IU is making licensing work by responding to user demand trends and then acquiring highly demanded software for all affiliates. The authors describe the evolution of licensing at IU, the Enterprise Licensing Agreement between IU and Microsoft, the impact of institutional/enterprise licensing on standardization, and how these lessons were also applied to desktop hardware purchases.
