General Availability of perpetual software licences in CSP

Microsoft announce the General Availability of perpetual software licences in CSP from 21 January 2021.

Commercial customers can now buy licences for a range of on-premises products through any CSP partner. This was previously only available for selected partners in some geographies, and additionally both the range of products and geographies are extended with this launch – if you’re interested in what’s been added, there’s a useful document here: https://bit.ly/3oehDLx, and the announcement itself is here: http://bit.ly/3iOCunF.

The Product Terms document is also updated with an additional CSP column to show availability of the on-premises products through this channel.

There’s an updated (October 2020) Dynamics 365 Business Central on-premises Licensing Guide.

The most major change is perhaps from a reformatting perspective – there has been a bit of reordering of the content and there’s a new front cover.

In addition, there are some tables added to the list for Team Members in Appendix A.
