Microsoft Office 365/Azure Price Increases

You may not be aware, but Microsoft’s online services are increasing in price from the 1st of April 2016. Specifically, in the New Zealand market, prices of Office 365 and Azure services are to rise by 22% across the board.

Microsoft periodically assesses the impact of its pricing to ensure there is a reasonable alignment with the needs its customers, partners, and the marketplace, and may make changes in response to its assessment and feedback. As part of our regular business practices in light of the rapid evolution of cloud services and evolving local market dynamics, Microsoft will adjust prices for cloud services in New Zealand to more closely align with the marketplace.
