Microsoft will increase CRM 2013 prices to properly establish SPLA prices relative to CRM 2013 prices in other VL programs. Current CRM 2013 prices are set below benchmarks for other VL products available in SPLA. This price increase is a step toward closing the pricing gap between CRM 2013 Service Provider and CRM 2013 in other VL programs.  Microsoft plans to make Dynamics CRM 2015 Service Provider available in SPLA during December 2014. Please share this information within your organization as appropriate.
