TTU IT Division consultation for software site licenses


Explanation

Software site licenses

Consultation provided by: Technology SupportĀ (ITTS)

Texas Tech University has agreements with major software vendors to provide software to students, faculty, and staff at significantly reduced prices or for free. These strategic software contracts with our vendor partners such as Adobe, Apple, Autodesk, and Microsoft are provided to the university user community to help reduce departmental software purchase costs, and provide increased security by making current versions of popular software available. Later versions of operating systems and applications are designed to overcome known security vulnerabilities in the older versions. In addition, where the demand and economic case have been established, specialty software license agreements have been negotiated to achieve sizeable cost savings, such as SPSS, SAS, and Maple.
