The cloud – The silver bullet for updating your company’s Microsoft Open programme

From 1 January 2022, Microsoft licence customers will not be able to purchase or update software licences or online services via the Open License programme. Bechtle can help you jump this hurdle, depending on the size of your company. We answer some of your questions in this blog post.

The Open programmes—Open Value, Open Value Subscription and Open License—boast a customisable platform and volume purchase discounts for a simple and affordable way for SMEs to purchase the latest Microsoft technology. With the Microsoft Open programmes, you can add online service subscriptions to your existing contract to allow yourself to transition to the cloud at your own pace.

From 1 January, 2022, open-ended software will be introduced to the Cloud Solution Provider programme and Open Value programme, enabling you to expand your options in cloud and managed services.

The aim of introducing open-ended software into the program is to make Microsoft and their partners’ solutions affordable as soon as possible.
