Microsoft has announced a price increase for cloud services by 9% from the 1st of April 2023 for UK users.
Prices are being increased worldwide but at different rates.
The price increase will depend on the specific product and plan that your business is currently using.
To be prepared for the price increase, you could consider the following three things:
- Review the business’s current usage and determine if you are utilising all of the features included in your current plan.
If not, consider changing to a less expensive plan that meets your business needs.
- Speak with your Microsoft partner to see if a plan change or restructure may be in order.
- Budget for the price increase in your medium-term financial plans.
- Consider your current software packages and review how you us e them to solve your business needs. Is it time to change them?
It’s really important to evaluate the cost-benefit of your software solutions and ensure that any potential solutions you consider still meet your business needs. Our advice, you may want to consult with IT experts or other professionals to help you make these decisions.
However, Re-Harvesting might be your best option to save costs. Synergy Technology has identified that many businesses do not track their Microsoft Dynamics 365 usage, potentially wasting their IT budget in the process.
