  • Use of eligible technology
  • Contractual reporting requirements.
  • Server environment and role
  • Virtualisation architecture and configuration
  • Managed Devices vs Managing Devices
  • Bundling and secondary entitlement
  • Product name changes & mergers.
  • Cloud hosting vs On Premise.
