  • Capabilities

Impacted audience

GCC partners transacting through the CSP program

Details

Starting August 24, 2021, we’re excited to announce the availability of the new commerce experience in CSP for Azure to all GCC partners. This experience will streamline and improve the way customers buy and consume Azure services. It will also give partners in the CSP program a consistent view of Azure pricing across sales motions, US dollar pricing for global consistency, billing date alignment, and access to Azure Cost Management. We also have a functionality on Partner Center that helps CSP partners move customers from existing CSP Azure offers to Azure services under the Azure plan.

Next steps

There are several resources available that introduce the new Azure commerce experience and provide additional information. Find the latest FAQs, decks, videos, and more in the CSP program updates resource gallery.


Enhancement of tool for transfer of Azure subscriptions between partners in the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program

Summary

The existing Azure subscription transition tool will be enhanced so that a customer’s previous Azure offer in CSP subscriptions can transfer between partners.

Categories

  • Date: 2021-07-21
  • Capabilities

Impacted audience

CSP direct bill partners and indirect providers, and resellers through their indirect providers

Details

Starting July 21, 2021, the existing Azure subscription transition tool will be enhanced so that a customer’s previous Azure offer in CSP subscriptions can transfer between partners while transitioning those subscriptions to the new Azure offer plan. The tool and process that partners need to take will remain the same as the partner-to-partner new Azure offer plan transfers. Find detailed information in the partner guide.

Azure subscription transition tools expand the new commerce experience for Azure in the CSP program, making it easier for CSP partners to manage Azure in ways that adapt to customers’ evolving business needs. Partners can save time with this easy-to-use self-serve tool for Azure transitions. There will be no disruption to Azure services during the transition of billing ownership.

Key capabilities and considerations

  • Transitioning a subscription from the previous Azure offer to the new Azure offer plan can change the billing currency. In the new Azure offer, partners will be billed in the customers’ location currency, except for the European Union/European Free Trade Association and United Kingdom regions, where from August, all partners in these regions will be billed in partners’ location currency.

  • Azure reservations don’t transfer.

  • Transition is driven by customer decision and occurs only when both partners take explicit action.

  • Transition is immediate, with no customer downtime or impact to Azure services.

  • This tool experience on Partner Center will be available for direct bill partners and indirect providers. Resellers need to work with indirect providers to use this tool on their behalf.

Next steps

  • Review the updated resources on this partner gallery page.

  • Guide your resellers on the transition process if you’re an indirect provider.

Partners transacting through the CSP program

Details

Changes to the previous Azure offer availability in the CSP program.

In January, we informed partners about upcoming changes to the previous Azure offer availability in the CSP program. See also January 2021 announcements for the January announcement details.

We announced that there will be three phases of change to the previous Azure offer, and we’ll inform partners six months in advance before the start date of each of these three phases.

As announced in January, the start date for phase 1 is today, July 21, 2021. We’re also announcing that the start date of phase 2 will be February 1, 2022.

Three phases

Phase 1: Beginning July 21, 2021

In phase 1, all new Azure CSP program business will be on the new Azure offer (Azure plan). The following guidelines will apply:

  • For all existing reseller relationships between partners and customers in the CSP program, if the customer has already purchased the previous Azure offer, the partner can continue to transact, and the customer can continue to purchase the previous Azure offer from that partner.

  • The previous Azure offer will no longer be available to new partners transacting in the CSP program.

  • The previous Azure offer will no longer be available to new customers purchasing via a partner in the CSP program.

  • For all new reseller relationships or new customer acquisitions, partners can only transact the new Azure offer (Azure plan).

  • For all existing reseller relationships between partners and customers, if the customer has never purchased Azure before, the partner can only transact, and the customer can only purchase the new Azure offer.

Phase 2: Beginning February 1, 2022

In phase 2, incentives and partner margin opportunity will be removed from the previous Azure offer.

Previous Azure offer in CSP

  • The partner margin opportunity and incentives associated with the previous Azure offer in CSP will be removed.

  • The price of the previous Azure offer in CSP will equal the estimated retail price for Azure.

New Azure offer in CSP (Azure plan)

  • Partners will continue to be eligible to earn partner earned credit (PEC) on the new Azure offer (Azure plan) in CSP.

  • Partners enrolled in Microsoft Commerce Incentives will continue to be eligible for incentives related to the new Azure offer (Azure plan) in CSP.

  • Partners with silver cloud platform competencies will be eligible for additional incentives related to the new Azure offer (Azure plan) in CSP (effective October 2021).

Phase 3: Date to be announced

In phase 3, any remaining customers on the previous Azure offer will be migrated to the new Azure offer in the CSP program (Azure plan). As with the previous phases, we’ll communicate the phase 3 start date to partners six months in advance.

Partner earned credit

With the new commerce experience, partners get recognized for differentiated value-added services on an ongoing basis through the PEC model. PEC rewards partners who focus on driving customer success via value-added services that generate sustainable profitability.

Introducing API throttling to partners calling Partner Center APIs

Categories

  • Date: 2021-07-19
  • Capabilities

Summary

Starting October 2021, Microsoft will implement API throttling to partners calling Partner Center APIs.

Impacted audience

Partners transacting through the Cloud Solution Provider program 

Details

Starting October 2021, Microsoft will be implementing API throttling for a more consistent performance within a time span for partners calling the Partner Center APIs. To prevent the overuse of resources, throttling limits the number of requests to a service in a time span. When a throttling threshold is exceeded, Partner Center limits any further requests from that client for a period of time.  

Partner benefits

While Partner Center is designed to handle a high volume of requests, if an overwhelming number of requests occurs, throttling helps maintain optimal performance and reliability for all partners. Benefits include the following:

  • Throttling ensures minimal downtime.

  • By reducing high-volume requests, we can ensure a consistent performance for all partners. 

APIs to be throttled

New software offers available in the Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program and changes to Open License program

Categories

  • Date: 2021-07-19
  • Capabilities

Summary

Resources and updates are now available to help partners prepare for software in the CSP program and changes to the Open License program.

Impacted audience

Open License program and CSP partners

Details

As we draw closer to December 31, 2021, which is the last day to transact Open License program offers this month, Microsoft is pleased to release a series of new software offers in the CSP program, enhancing the reach of these hybrid products beyond commercial segments.

Government, education, and nonprofit customer eligibility for software license orders in the CSP program

As previously announced, government, education, and nonprofit software license offers are now available for eligible customers in the CSP program—nonprofit offers will be released in three to five business days. From today, the current customer eligibility and/or validation processes used in the CSP program applies to these offers, delivering a compliant and secure customer experience:

For customers who want Software Assurance (SA) on their perpetual software licenses, the Open Value (OV) program is available for all segments.

Get Genuine Windows Agreement (GGWA) and Visual Studio Pro

GGWA and Visual Studio Pro will launch in the CSP program over several days in mid-July.

Next steps

Note that December 31, 2021 is the last day to transact Open License program offers. As of midnight of January 1, 2022, partners must be onboarded into the CSP program to transact perpetual software offers. Therefore, between now and December 31, 2021, if your business has sales of perpetual software to customers through the Open License program, you’ll need to:

  1. Onboard to the CSP program if you’ve not done so already.
  2. Transition Open License program customers, sooner rather than later, to the CSP program for perpetual software needs, or to the OV or Open Value Subscription programs to protect the revenue streams of customers with SA needs.

For indirect providers, ensuring your resellers are prepared for these changes is a major factor for a successful transition. We urge you to begin this process as soon as possible. We’ve created a series of readiness materials to help you prepare and accelerate your reseller onboarding activities, along with upcoming webinars for reseller awareness:

If you have questions or need further details regarding fulfillment of software in CSP, refer to our newest asset, the guide to ordering and fulfillment through Partner Center.

Impacted audience

Partners in the MCCL CSP program

Details

Software in MCCL CSP general availability date

Targeting the first week of August 2021, partners enrolled in the MCCL CSP program will be able to sell perpetual software licenses for on-premises deployment through MCCL CSP. This will give customers the licensing flexibility that they need as part of their digital transformation.

Open License program retirement

From January 1, 2022, customers will no longer be able to buy new or renew software licenses through the Microsoft Open License program. Until then, all customers can continue to purchase through the Open License program.

Open License program price change for government

From July 2021, government customers will see varied price increases to the Open License program government on-premises SKUs, such as License (L), Software Assurance (SA), and Microsoft License and Software Assurance (L&SA). This is a continuation of work that started in 2018 to align the price setting for government organizations with the new commerce experience. The Open License government price will then be equal to the lowest commercial price, creating parity with the new commerce experience pricing in the CSP program and making it easier for government customers to compare solutions. Learn more in the Open License government pricing FAQ and L100 deck.

SA purchases

SA benefits will continue until the SA term expires, even if the expiration is after January 1, 2022. The Microsoft Open Value (OV) program is recommended for future purchases that include SA.

Note

There are no plans to change the OV or Open Value Subscription programs.

Keep your Microsoft certifications active with help from Partner Center

Categories

  • Grow Your Business

Impacted audience

Partner administrators and global administrators managing Microsoft certification status and renewals

Details

Keeping your Microsoft certifications active just got easier, with help from Partner Center.

You've always been able to view your organization's certifications in your Partner Center dashboard, but now you can also view their expiration dates in both the User Skills Report and the Partner Center Insights Training Report. These updates put you in control of the certification renewal process for your organization. Read on to learn how to find the reporting updates and how they'll benefit you.

In the Competencies section of your Partner Center dashboard, you'll find your Competency Report. When you export the data to Excel, you'll see your User Skills Report, which provides a list of the achievements you've earned (such as certifications and exams) that qualify you for competencies. There's a new column at the end of that report labeled "Skill Expiration Date," where you'll find expiration dates for your employees' role-based and specialty certifications.

In the Organization Skills section of your Partner Center dashboard, you'll find your Partner Center Insights Training Report. When you export this report's data to Excel, you'll find a new Expiration Date column, which contains the expiration dates for your team's certifications.

These updates help you to take action quickly and remind your employees to renew their certifications, keeping both their credentials and your MPN program status active.

How does the new certification renewal process work?

  • Instead of going to a testing center and paying to retake the certification exams, your employees will visit Microsoft Learn and pass a free certification renewal assessment that tests them on the latest technology updates.
  • As their certification expiration dates near, they'll receive email notifications from Microsoft, directing them to the certification renewal assessment on Microsoft Learn.
  • Online learning paths contain study material to prepare for the assessment, which they can attempt as many times as they need.
  • Passing the assessment extends their certification expiration for one year.
  • This process repeats each year, ensuring skills are current.

To align with this new annual renewal process, Microsoft is also changing the validity timeframe for role-based and specialty certifications from two years to one year. Starting June 30, 2021, all role-based and specialty certifications earned will be valid for one year.

Note that Microsoft Fundamentals and older legacy certifications are exempt and are not affected by the new process.

Next steps

  1. Get ahead of the expiration dates for your team's certifications: review your User Skills Report or Partner Center Insights Training Report to identify certification expiration dates coming up soon.
  2. Take action: encourage your team to renew their Microsoft certifications before the expiration date.
