Microsoft’s increasing its subscription prices by 20 to 40% for Microsoft 365 in March. It’s the first big price rise for a decade and Microsoft’s also changing the way it sells 365. It’s a complicated situation and there’s bound to be some short-term pain as we all get used to it. Here are the basic details. You should talk to your IT support partner over the next few weeks to see exactly how it’s going to affect your business. NOTE – the RSA pricing has also not been finalised vy time of posting this post. From March you’ll have a choice of sticking with the rolling month by month contract and swallowing the price increase, or you can commit to a 12-month agreement.
The big benefit of an agreement is that it’ll lock your current pricing for a year. But there’s a downside – you’ll lose flexibility.
