Why Should I Buy the Microsoft Action Pack?

October 30, 2011

I was a former Action Pack subscriber and recently signed up again. The main reason I hadn’t maintained my subscription to the action pack was it became more difficult to acquire.  Microsoft has since made it much easier, requiring you take an intuitive 10 question quiz about the benefits of the action pack in order to get valid action pack (among other business requirements which are easily met by companies where the action pack is applicable).

There are two versions of the action pack — the solution provider version and the development and design version.  Both provide exceptional value.  Here are some of the features of each:

Microsoft Action Pack Solution Provider

  • Three internal use software licenses for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, SQL Server, Exchange, Sharepoint, SBS and more
  • TechNet subscription
  • Technical Support
Microsoft Action Pack Development and Design
  • For those organizations who do software design and development
  • Internal use software licenses for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, SQL Server, Exchange, Sharepoint, SBS and more
  • TechNet subscription
  • Technical Support
  • One limited MSDN subscription
Overall, the action pack is absolutely worth it, if not for the MSDN subscription alone.  Our company is the appropriate size and was able to take immediate advantage benefits of the action pack well above the cost of the subscription.
