If you work with the procurement officer within your agency who is responsible for buying Microsoft software, then this news will make that person very happy once you are ready to license Virtual Earth. One of the new additions to the Microsoft Volume Licensing program for 2008 is the introduction of the Virtual Earth SKUs to the Microsoft price list. All government customers can now easily add Virtual Earth to their existing Select and/or Enterprise Agreements (EAs) that are serviced through their Large Account Resellers. This means that you can call GTSI, SoftMart, CDW-G or any other official GSA Schedule holder for Microsoft software to license Virtual Earth.
