Frequently Asked Questions

In September 2014, Microsoft enabled Shared Computer Activation (SCA) mode in Office 365 so that multiple Office 365 ProPlus users can share the same hardware in the following three scenarios:

  • Customer dedicated self-hosted (on-premise)
  • Dedicated third-party hosted
  • Windows Azure environment

Shared Computer Activation mode works with enterprise versions of Office 365 including ProPlus and those plans that include ProPlus as part of the subscription like E3.

The main outcome of SCA for Office 365 ProPlus is that it gives customers choice and flexibility. SCA allows customers to take advantage of existing Office 365 ProPlus licensing investments when deploying to the cloud.

Customers are able to make a deployment choice between on-premise and any authorized Service Providers’ shared datacenter to help lower cloud infrastructure costs by letting Applied Innovations use your existing Office 365 ProPlus licenses.

You can work with Applied Innovations to take advantage of SCA for Office 365 ProPlus. Applied Innovations is an approved SCA for Office 365 ProPlus Program provider, allowing us to deploy your eligible Office 365 ProPlus licenses to your choen cloud infrastructure solution.
