Microsoft Online Subscription Agreement (MOSA) is a transaction licensing agreement for commercial, government and academic organizations with one or more users/devices. MOSA is best suited for organizations that want to subscribe, enable, deploy and manage cloud services through the Microsoft Online Subscription Program (MOSP) seamlessly and directly across the web. Local software and software insurance are not available via MOSA.

The announcement recommended moving to the open value program, which has an SA option for indeterminate licenses. There are three main categories of licensing types: Open License, Open Value and Enterprise Agreement. The Microsoft Open License program was developed more than 20 years ago for small and medium-sized customers to purchase multiple indeterminate software licenses at a volume price. Microsoft is taking an important step in simplifying the license by introducing indeterminate software license purchases as part of the new business experience, as part of our Cloud Solutions Provider program for partners with an availability date in January 2021. Small and medium-sized customers benefit from a simplified approach and greater flexibility in purchasing software licenses in an easily understandable way, which directly improves the management of licensing assets and entails predictable costs.
