Prep for Microsoft Pricing Changes with Smarter SaaS
Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) Program is ever changing and adapting to meet the current business needs of organizations of all sizes. Microsoft recently announced the latest evolution of the CSP program, the New Commerce Experience (NCE)
By 10th March 2022 all new customer subscriptions will be agreed through NCE and renewals of existing services by 30th June 2022.
Pricing models will change and customers have a choice of monthly, annual or 3 year commitments with different pricing options dependent on the length of commitment.
For customers this means it is essential to know their level of usage optimization before choosing their commitment levels. In many cases customers have unused or partly used subscriptions and need to ensure they are not committing to these unused service for a long term commitment.
