Here’s a list of resources I think are worth checking out. Not all pertain to SPLA specifically, but in the world of IT – all licensing programs find a way to relate to one another. Check it out.
Microsoft SPLA Program
Microsoft Marketing Campaigns
Great Microsoft Volume Licensing Blog
SPLA Reseller (I work for them with SAM) There is a free compliance check where the team will review your order and ensure you are licensing correctly and the most cost effective way. http://www.softwareone.com/en-us/Licensing/Microsoft-SPLA/Pages/default.aspx
SPLA Reseller Email – SPLA.email@example.com
VMware Service Provider Program
Citrix CSP Program
Citrix Marketing Tools
Citrix/Microsoft DaaS Whitepapers, etc.
Hope this helps

Great list sir. As more and more of the tier 1 & 2 publishers are looking to get into the non- perpetual or “pay as you go” model you can expect things to get interesting. The good part is it now brings products you can add to your portfolio.
If you are a service provider and looking to gain new offerings you can take to market, keep these on your radar as well:
Lots on the horizon, yet I know these publishers are working through the contracts to offer this in a SPLA type model.
Always a good read and one of the best in understanding the programs. You are a great resource to the community.
