Microsoft Licensing Changes
Microsoft is consolidating its licensing program to create better customer experience.
As Microsoft continue to simplify their licensing and programs offered to partners & end-users.
The plan is to have 3 main ways to purchase licensing:
• Through Partners with CSP (Cloud Solution Provider) Program
• Through Microsoft web direct
• For large Enterprise companies an Enterprise Agreement Program.
After over 20 years Microsoft has finally decided to retire Microsoft Open Licensing Program, this was traditionally an on premise program with Cloud added into its old fashioned structure.
CSP is Microsoft’s hero program and allows partners to offer the best service to our customers by combining licensing, advice and support. As you can see below all Microsoft product offers are available within CSP.
