With Microsoft retiring the Open Licence program at the end of 2021, customers currently acquiring software through Microsoft’s Open License Program will need to transition to the Cloud Solution or Open Value. 

Microsoft Open Value and Open Value Subscription are a simple, cost-effective way for small and midsize organisations to acquire the latest Microsoft technology. With a customizable platform and price advantages for volume purchasing, Open Value and Open Value Subscription provide a simple, cost-effective way to acquire the latest Microsoft technology. Microsoft Open Value and Open Value Subscription offer the ability to add online services subscriptions to your agreement, so you can transition to the cloud at your own pace through your existing agreement.

Open Value

Open Value is the recommended program if you have a small to midsize organisation with five or more desktop PCs and want to simplify license management, manage software costs, and improve your control over your investment. It also includes Software Assurance, which provides access to valuable benefits such as training, deployment planning, software upgrades, and product support to help you boost the productivity of your entire organisation. You can get software licenses with Software Assurance or renew Software Assurance through the Open Value program.

Open Value is available to commercial, education, government, and non-profit organisations.

Open Value Subscription

Open Value Subscription provides the lowest up-front costs of the Open Value options with the flexibility to reduce the total licensing costs in years when the desktop PC count declines. This option gives your organisation the rights to run the software throughout your organisation only during the term of the agreement with Microsoft. You also have the ability to add the single platform option to an Open Value Subscription agreement. Open Value Subscription is available for commercial entities, government organisations through the Open Value agreement, and educational institutions through Open Value Subscription for Education Solutions.


With an initial purchase of five or more licenses, you can acquire products and services as you need them over the term of your agreement.

In addition to options for commercial businesses, Microsoft also offers options through Open Value for the following industries:
