Microsoft are ending Open licensing

Linkedin is awash with IT providers telling everyone the same message. "Hey everyone did you know that Microsoft are ending the Open licensing program".

Simple really, they are moving with the times and looking to drive businesses towards the recurring revenue model, something that is common place in the channel for vendors and resellers alike.

We think it is a good move if handled properly because the CSP model has come through its teething problems and now offers good value for all.


  • Less complexity

  • Increased flexablity


  • Opex forecasting for improved cashflow

This is all part of the Microsoft Enhanced Commerce Experience drive and all of this fits perfectly with the Simoda strategy of successful digital transformation (User Experience, Customer Experience & Business Performance)
