The New Commerce Experience (NCE) model for Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Windows 365, and Power Platform subscriptions is the latest in the evolution of Microsoft’s CSP program. It provides the opportunity to simplify and manage subscriptions, billing, licensing and payments.
The New Commerce Experience makes it easier to transact with Microsoft, as well as accelerate the growth of business and the ability to drive cloud adoption for customers. It delivers a consistent, simplified licensing, and flexible purchase experience for customers and partners.
How Can You Use NCE?
Microsoft launched the NCE with the intention of reducing complexity and providing cost savings for the long-term, while also introducing new features to make CSP a comparable alternative to the long-standing Enterprise Agreement (EA).
The Microsoft NCE will be offering Monthly, Annual, and Three-Year subscriptions:
What Does This Mean For You?
Customers will be able to commit to their existing licenses on an annual basis and lock in a price for a year.
Customers can also commit on a month-to-month basis, but this will result in an additional 20% premium on top of the price increase.
A blended monthly and annual approach will also be available.
All new Microsoft CSP subscriptions are required to be purchased via the NCE motion. However, renewals can still be concluded up until 1 June 2022. At which point it would move over to NCE.
