Azure Partner Community | Office 365 Partner Community
Starting today, you have two offers from Microsoft that can help you talk to small business customers, midsize business customers, and state and local government customers about taking a solution-oriented approach to updating their IT infrastructures. With the refreshed lineup of Microsoft cloud services and on-premises products, the Cloud Easy offer and the Big Easy Offer 10 are a great opportunity for customers to capitalize on the benefits of the modern era of computing. Both offers are valid from March 1 – May 31.
New! From April 1 through May 31, customers can earn an additional 5% in partner subsidy funds when they attach a minimum of ten seats of Microsoft Office 365 Open (M or SBP) to any Open agreement containing Windows Server or SQL Server within 30 days of the original purchase. Terms and conditions for this offer have been added to both the Big Easy Offer 10 and Cloud Easy Offer terms and conditions documents.
Cloud Easy: Talk to your customers about the cloud.
With the release of the new Office 365 for businesses earlier this week, the value proposition of the cloud for your customers just gets better. Help your customers increase their IT flexibility, reduce deployment costs, and improve their operations management by helping them move to the cloud. The Cloud Easy offer lets your customers earn partner subsidy dollars on their Microsoft Online Services subscription purchases—dollars they can apply to additional software licenses, subscriptions, or services. Offer ends May 31. Offer terms and conditions.
Big Easy: Encourage your customers to upgrade to the new on-premises releases.
With the aggressive refresh cycle of Microsoft products over the past year, it’s the right time to talk to your customers about upgrading to use the new features and functionality that help increase operational efficiency, data management, productivity, and collaboration. The Big Easy Offer 10 covers a wide variety of popular Microsoft on-premises software. Offer ends May 31. Offer terms and conditions.
Value to customers – expand IT budgets, defray implementation costs
Value to partners – drive solution-based sales and build trusted advisor relationships
