Microsoft Open License Program Ending

At the end of Dec. 2021, Microsoft will fully phase out the Open License program, one of three small and midsize customer–focused volume license programs with “Open” in their names. After that point, commercial customers will be unable to use Open License to purchase online service subscriptions, buy new perpetual licenses, or renew Software Assurance (SA) on existing perpetual licenses (preexisting SA subscription periods will continue to their expirations, even if they end after Dec. 31, 2021).
