Today's enterprises are complex - with virtually endless combinations of platforms, directories, systems, applications and patches. Add in the threats posed by viruses and the complications involved with supporting mobile users, and the need to manage these environments is obvious. What's historically been a bit more unclear, however, is exactly how to go about managing them in a way that doesn't overwhelm IT staff or increase costs to unsustainable levels.Product Highlights

MASTER LICENSE AGREEMENT
Customers may qualify for the MLA in one of two ways: Make a qualifying initial purchase by purchasing any combination of new licenses, upgrade licenses, Software Maintenance, or services for any MLA product.
Transition from one of the other Novell Licensing levels (VLA or CLA). This option allows existing customers to apply the purchases from the past term of an existing CLA or VLA toward their MLA qualification requirement.
The combined purchases made by all of a customer's divisions, subsidiaries and affiliates apply toward making their initial qualifying purchase. In addition to the initial qualifying MLA purchase, the customer must submit a signed Master License Agreement to Novell.
