Happy New Year! Here’s a price increase. How can Microsoft do this? In the SPLA agreement it states they (Microsoft) can issue a price increase once a year in January. Be prepared! Are there decreases? No, but that doesn’t mean you cannot reduce your costs.
If you report over 10,000 a month (US, EU, or Australia) in SPLA reporting email me and let’s review. (firstname.lastname@example.org) Why 10,000? Historically, that’s where I was able to make the most cost savings. There are tricks to licensing that often get overlooked. In the “about” section of this blog, I mention I want to ensure you are licensing correctly (that’s #1) but just as important, the most cost effective way. Happy to help.
Thanks for reading!
