Interestingly in the graphic posted above I thought SCCM 2012 could manage Android devices and didn't need InTune or has that changed?

EES = Office 365 everywhere, free with EES for the standard package
Wouldn't bother running an internal SharePoint now for most reasonably sized organisations as the 365 version would do the trick for student \ staff collaboration. File storage however can go wherever you prefer it to be and doesn't have to be all-or-nothing i.e. put your file shares where you want and use as much \ little of the cloud service to suit your needs.
Cost = same as what you pay for Office anyway (unless you've junked it completely for Google Apps, not many people gone down that road yet as far as I know)

£40,000 per year . Compare to Google Docs you get automatic sync of MSOffice files, Google drive to sync mapped homedrives plus the collaborative tools - so you can still have EES AND Google docs and have both benefits, plus you get Android and chromebook devices at a fraction of the cost.

Microsoft: 60 million Windows 8 licenses sold to date « ZDNet
Microsoft officials said the company has sold 60 million Windows 8 licenses to date.
Tami Reller, Chief Financial and Chief Marketing Officer for Windows shared the data at the JP Morgan Tech Forum at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on January 8.
That 60 million figure includes "sell in to OEMs for new PCs" and upgrades, said Reller. She didn't explicitly cite whether the figure also includes any Enterprise Agreement/volume license sales.
"Windows 8 is a big, ambitious change," Reller acknowledged. She reiterated that Windows 8 sales are roughly in line with Windows 7 sales.
Microsoft said the company had sold 40 million licenses of Windows 8 as of the end of November.
Reller said the sales are "roughly in line with where we would have been with Windows 7."
NPD has cited that retail demand for Windows 8 was off through the end of 2012.
In part, Windows 8's less-than-stellar retail sales can be attributed to the lack of touch-enabled laptops and tablets running the operating system. At CES this week, a number of Microsoft's PC-maker partners have announced new touch-screen Windows 8 and Windows RT hardware, but a number of these still won't be available for months.
A more independent view on those sales figures: Microsoft pats self on back over Windows 8 sales ? The Register
And something on the future of MS: 'Not even Santa could save Microsoft's Windows 8' ? The Register
They have sold 60 million copies because you cannot buy windows 7 machines any more in stores.
Its nice having a monopoly sometimes
