In November of 2019, Microsoft introduced a new commerce experience for Azure in the CSP program. What does this mean for Managed Service Providers (MSPs)?
There are three primary reasons why Microsoft released the new commerce experience for Azure in CSP:
-Microsoft wants to reward CSP partners who add value by providing managed services rather than reselling it
-All pricing will be tied to a single global price list in USD
-New simplified agreements for both customers and partners
This program is not mandatory to migrate to right away; Microsoft is adding this as an additional option for the time being but is likely to become an incentive over time. However, if you are a direct CSP or an indirect CSP provider, this is something to be aware of right now.
