We all like a good deal at the end of the day, regardless of what we are purchasing. So it was great to hear about a new, limited-time pricing offer from Microsoft concerning Power Apps this week, which provides some significant discounts to the standard, Microsoft direct list prices. Here’s a rundown of what’s on offer:
- Per app plan:
- Per user plan:
- Purpose: For situations where organisations are running many different apps, and need a streamlined license that provides for unlimited app capacity on a tenant and enhanced storage options within Microsoft Dataverse
- Normal Price: $40/user/month
- Discounted Price: $12/user/month
That represents a whopping seventy percent (70%) discount – Christmas has come early it seems! Now, before you get too excited, be sure to keep in mind the following terms & conditions with the offer:
- The offer will remain valid between December 1st through to June 2021.
- Only customers buying licenses via a volume licensing or Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) partner will be able to take advantage of the reduced price.
- Both offers are subject to a minimum purchase. For the per-app plan, customers must purchase 200 licenses; for the per-user plan, 5,000 licenses must be ordered.
For volume licensing customers on Enterprise Agreements, this represents an excellent opportunity for you to secure licenses for one of today’s premier low-code, business application development platforms and to hold these prices over several years. Unfortunately, CSP agreements typically last for a maximum of 1 year, so it won’t be possible to secure this discounted rate for longer than this if you’re transacting directly with a partner. Regardless, there is still a great opportunity here for your organisation to save money and take advantage of some of the various capabilities within the Power Platform.
