Azure Machine Learning

Currently, Microsoft’s Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) which includes Azure Active Directory Premium, Microsoft Intune, and Azure Rights Management can be purchased only through Enterprise Agreement (EA) with Microsoft. But, Microsoft is changing it from next month. EMS will be available in Open Licensing on March 1, 2015 just Like many of the other cloud-based services that recently become available in Open such as Office 365, Azure or Dynamics CRM Online. Open Licensing offers flexibility and potential cost savings making it possible for distributors and resellers to sell additional cloud services to small and medium-sized enterprises.

Microsoft also announced that Microsoft Action Pack subscribers, along with Silver and Gold competency partners, will get access to EMS and Azure AD Basic as part of their Internal Use Rights (IURs) benefits. This will help partners to demo EMS to their customers, and perform internal development and testing.
