Local pricing update for cloud services - Updates for the Euro (EUR), Swedish Krona (SEK), Norwegian Krone (NOK), Danish Krone (DKK) and British Pound (GBP)
Required Security Updates for all CSP Partners
Microsoft is announcing several steps to ensure greater price harmonization for our cloud products across the globe. This will ensure that all our customers worldwide have more closely aligned pricing compared to the USD rate. That is why on April 1, 2023, Microsoft will adjust Cloud prices in EUR, GBP, SEK, NOK and DKK for local currency fluctuations and move towards more consistent global pricing. We believe that our cloud continues to be priced competitively. We also believe that it enables customers to do more with less by enabling them to innovate, to consolidate and to eliminate operating costs, optimize business performance, and build a foundation for a strong security strategy.
Starting April 1, 2023, the following adjustment will be effective for Microsoft Cloud services:
Danish Krone (DKK), Euro (EUR) and Norwegian Krone (NOK), prices will adjust +11% Swedish Krona (SEK) prices will adjust +15%
For business customers, these changes will not affect existing orders under licensing agreements for products that are subject to price protection. However, prices for new product additions under such licensing agreements and purchases under new contracts will be as defined by the pricelist at the time of order. In this series of calls, we will be running through the details of these changes and potential sales scenarios for Partners, how to best manage these changes.
On top, we will provide a short update on the ongoing migration to GDAP, to ensure all CSP partners and their customers’ tenants are protected in the best possible way. Changes presented in this calls are relevant to every CSP Partner working with Microsoft.
