- License management. Enhanced self-service, online tools give customers and partners better management capabilities.
- Self-service tools also make it easy to register and access all the information you need about your agreement
- Downgrade rights. Institutions can now standardize on versions. Downgrade rights offer the right to license the latest software version available, yet still run an earlier version.

- Realize more value from Software Assurance. Institutions receive a full value for their benefits with proration of coverage to the purchase month, providing between 25 and 36 months of coverage.

Note that you may not license in one language and deploy that licensed product in another language with a higher value.
