Why are Microsoft raising prices for Dynamics 365?

Microsoft is updating the pricing to reflect the value and innovation they have delivered since the last price increase over five years ago. Since then, Microsoft has released hundreds of new features and enhancements. From AI-powered, real-time customer insights to data insights, supply chain visibility, and end-to-end automation of financial processes, Microsoft keeps on innovating with Dynamics 365.

 

What should I do now?

If your organization’s Dynamics 365 licenses are due for renewal soon, consider renewing them before October 1, 2024, to lock in the current pricing for the next contract term. By renewing ahead of the price hike, you can potentially save on licensing costs and mitigate the impact of the increase on your operational expenses.

Evaluate your organization’s budget and forecasted usage to determine if an early renewal makes financial sense. If you need consultancy concerning your Dynamics 365 licenses, contact SCHNEIDER IT MANAGEMENT.
