Is cloud adoption widening the disruption gap?

Changes in the November CSP Pricelist – Visio Online

As of the 1st November 2017, “Visio Pro for Office 365” will be renamed to “Visio Online Plan 2”. With this, the price will be increased by approximately 15%. Customers will not be affected until the 12 months price lock per subscription ends. This means that customers who are still running Visio Pro for Office 365 do not need to purchase the new Visio Online Plan 2 until the 12-month subscription term expires. Visio Online Plan 1 has now also been introduced.

Changes in the November CSP Pricelist – Microsoft 365 Business

This product offers various and selected functionality for Windows Enterprise, Office 365 and Enterprise, Mobility and Security suite specifically aimed for the SMB market. Larger companies, or companies needing additional functionality, should take a look at the Microsoft 365 E3 and E5 subscriptions.

Clarification of Windows Enterprise SKUs

Late this summer, Microsoft released VDA rights for Windows Enterprise via CSP.  This gave resellers the opportunity to offer their customers not only a local upgrade to Windows Enterprise, but also a virtual Windows 10.

There are now three SKUs to choose from, consisting of:

Windows E3 – only offers a virtual instance                                          12 USD
Windows E3 local only – only on physical machine                                 7 USD
Windows E3 VDA – a combined version of above products                    18 USD
