Letters to the editor

Following is a response to an FCW.com poll question that asked: "Do you think the proposed enterprise software licensing concept is worth the effort?"

Absolutely, yes. The convenience and time saved of not having to purchase and repurchase software, mess with license keys, track licenses and machine serial numbers, etc., greatly outweighs the bureaucratic hassles of a purchase that size.

The Department of Veterans Affairs has used a Microsoft Corp. enterprise license for several years. It was expected to be a hassle having to validate quantities used at the end of the contract, but turned out to be very minor compared to the daily logistics of not having a contract.
