Microsoft Alert – United Kingdom Price Increase

Author: Scott Braden

microsoft-ukFor those that are not yet aware, Microsoft has announced SIGNIFICANT price increases due to start January 2017. Microsoft claims that the price increases are a result of the UK’s exit from the European Union and the resulting decrease in the value of the British Pound.

The price increase will be as much as 22% for Enterprise Cloud Services, and 13% for on premise Enterprise Software.  Given there are only two months left before these changes take effect,  there is significant urgency around evaluating the potential impact and how to adjust and mitigate it.
