What can I expect?

  • Support Tier: Tier 1 - Best Effort: While approved for use there is no institutional support for the application. IT Help would make an effort to assist using general technical knowledge. If unable to do so, the user would need to resolve the issue on their own or contact a commercial vendor for assistance.

  • Acquisition Model: Direct Download: Software is downloaded to a local computer and installed to run from that specific device.

  • Licensing Model: User license server: Miami or the Vendor hosts a license server that the application uses to check in and validate that you still have permission to use the application. The license server typically has one or more administrators that review and ensure the licenses have been deployed according to the terms and conditions of use.

  • Authentication Model: Independent Registration: The user is required to create an account individually with the application vendor.
