See ya 2017! Upcoming changes for SPLAlicensing.com and Microsoft SPLA

02 Jan

Happy New Year to all my followers, partners, and readers.  It has definitely been a year of transformation for Microsoft and the cloud community.  2017 has also been a big year for SPLAlicensing.com.  Here are some of the highlights of 2017 and upcoming announcements for 2018!

  • SPLAlicensing.com had over 150k unique visitors in 2017.  To put this in perspective, I had 3k visitors in 2014.  Which I guess is good but bad that there’s some much confusion over licensing.
  • The number one topic with the most views?  “How to License Exchange”
  • Microsoft announced major price increases in 2018 (starting February for January usage)
  • Not all SPLA Resellers are created equal.  Make sure your pricing is accurate. You can email info@splalicensing.com to review.
  • I am creating a forum and easy to read white papers for SPLAlicensing.com.  If you have any recommendations or topics let us know.  info@splalicensing.com
  • Microsoft is transforming SPLA to CSP.  Surprise!   Many resources are moving away from SPLA to focus on Azure.  SPLAlicensing.com will not be 100% Microsoft focused but cloud focused.  (including Google, AWS, and other publishers).
  • I  am launching a charity called “Mow Down Cancer” to help families with their lawn care and other household needs while their child is going through cancer treatments.
  • Last, my family bought a cat in 2017.  I think I would rather read the SPUR than deal with a cat (although she has grown on me).  The things we do for our kids.  Maybe I should go by “Cat Man”.

Thanks for reading and here’s to a prosperous 2018!
