As previously announced earlier this year, the Microsoft price harmonisation will take effect from 1st April 2023.
This means Microsoft are updating local currency cloud pricing in EUR, GBP, SEK, NOK and DKK based on foreign currency fluctuations compared to the US dollar (USD). This is to enable greater price harmonisation for their cloud products across the globe, to ensure that your customers worldwide have more closely aligned pricing compared to the USD rate.
Note that your customers who license Azure through New Commerce CSP have pricing in US dollars worldwide and will not be affected by the local currency-based price changes.
Starting 1st April 2023, the following adjustment will be effective for Microsoft Cloud services:
- British Pound (GBP) prices will adjust +9%
- Danish Krone (DKK), Euro (EUR) and Norwegian Krone (NOK), prices will adjust +11%
- Swedish Krona (SEK) prices will adjust +15%
These adjustments will not affect existing orders under licensing agreements for products that are subject to price protection. However, prices for new product additions under such licensing agreements and purchases under new contracts will be as defined by the price list at the time of order.
