“Don’t bogart that token, my friend.”

Have you ever walked in on a couple of people in mid-conversation and what they were talking about was so interesting that you just had to lean in and listen? Today’s episode of TechTalks to Go is just like that.

When Kurt Moody and I sat down to talk — because let’s face it, neither one of us was going to stand and talk — we covered so much ground that I had to slice and dice our conversation into multiple episodes. This latest one is all about shared computer activation for Office 365.

In a nutshell, shared computer activation is what allows a system administrator to install O365 once on a XenApp or XenDesktop environment and have it be available for all users of that hosted environment.

Sounds exciting, I know. But if you are administering this environment it is essential. Neither you nor your employees want to be stopped mid-launch of Word for Windows because someone else is using it or because you get prompted (AGAIN) to activate that licensed copy. And don’t forget, not all heroes wear capes.

Tune in and follow Kurt as he discusses:

  • Office 365 licensing models
  • Shared computer activation
  • Device based v user based licensing
  • SCA step by step
  • Roaming tokens and user prompts

Nothing should stand in the way of your employees getting the most productive digital workspace with Office 365. Certainly not licensing and activation issues.

And if you don’t get the reference to the Little Feat song, please ask your parents.
