United States : MICROSOFT rewards SA customers for previous investments in on premise software

July 4, 2014

Microsoft is gearing up to increase its Office 365 pricing for business volume licensing customers, and will ask some to pay around 15 percent more for the suite of cloud-based apps.

The company will hike the prices of Office 365 for its Enterprise Agreement customers that don't have an active Software Assurance (SA) plan, starting August.

A 3-year subscription, SA allows establishments to upgrade to the latest editions of on premise software launched during the period.

Microsoft has included the new Office 365 pricing in the vendor's August price list, which it published recently.

15% is an overall range for the Office 365 price hike, which will only be applicable to EA customers without SA.

The Office 365 price increase won't affect the vast majority of Microsoft customers.

The price hike is a way for the company to reward SA customers for their earlier investments in on premise software.
