Microsoft’s ‘New Commerce Experience’: What You Need to Know

Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) programme is changing to meet the needs of modern businesses. The New Commerce Experience (NCE) – initially launched in 2019 for Microsoft Azure – is being expanded in 2022 to include other popular products, including Microsoft 365, Windows 365, Dynamics 365, and Power Platform, on a seat-based model.

The stated aim of expanding NCE is to provide a more cost-effective and simplified licensing choice:

  • Delivering a simplified purchasing experience.
  • Standardising offers and terms.
  • Offering a flexible monthly subscription to customers.

How Will The New Commerce Experience Affect Customers?

Customers will experience greater flexibility and more focused forward planning as a result of several changes that are being introduced through NCE.

  • New products: Windows 365 will be available through CSPs, with free trial options and new add-ons which are available only through NCE.
  • Flexible billing: Customers will now be able to pay by monthly subscriptions, so they can cancel or reduce seat counts monthly. Also, monthly subscriptions can be integrated with annual licence-based subscriptions to balance costs.
  • Improved value: Access to the best prices on annual-term subscriptions will benefit customers, with prices locked-in for longer contractual periods.

Will Microsoft Products Be Affected?

NCE is designed to simplify users’ licensing and billing arrangements, so all product functionality, capabilities, and features should remain unchanged.
