Office Web Apps 2013 and Project Server Licensing

Thanks to Robert in our office who took care of answering the following questions for me (thanks Rob), and now I’m sharing them with you…

Here’s the questions (and answers) I asked Rob:

Office Web Apps 2013

In 2010, if you had volume licensing, for each user you bought a volume license for, you could use Office Web Apps (OWA) for them and the “server” piece was a free download from Microsoft’s Volume Site, Questions:

  • Is it the same in 2013?  YES
  • If it isn’t, how is it licensed?  SAME
  • If the customer is using Office 365, are they then licensed/allowed to use Office Web Apps on premise?  Only if they have licensed Office client — VL or licensed through E3 or better plan.

Project Server Licensing

In 2010, you had to have SharePoint Enterprise CAL’s and then also buy Project Server (I don’t think there was a CAL, but could be mistaken and with 2013 I no longer care Winking smile

  • To plug Project Server into your SharePoint on Premise, what do you need to buy (per server and/or per user)?  According to Partner Support, the licensing in 2013 is the same as in 2010 — you buy Project Server, you buy Project Server CAL’s
  • Do you need SharePoint 2013 Enterprise CAL still?  Yes
  • Same question re: Office 365, if you have Office 365 and are on Project Online, can you use it locally too?  You have to be licensed locally to use on premise.
