Verified reports from Microsoft clients confirm that a large portion of Premier Support subscribers should anticipate up to an 85% price increase over the next three years when forced into the Unified Support model. US Cloud can rescue those endangered IT budgets with its Microsoft Enterprise Support alternative. With US Cloud, organizations can continue to pay only for the support they need, not for products they don’t use. Clients typically save 30-50% when switching from MS Premier/Unified support to US Cloud.
Reports from industry analysts, Microsoft EA negotiators, and client companies all confirm ongoing significant price increases for Microsoft Premier (Unified) Support. As companies are forced to transition into the Unified model in 2021 and 2022 (SAB credits retired Feb 2022), support costs are rising 13-19% year-over-year (or more) for a large portion of the Premier Support base. Some MS support customers are being sold support plans that are labeled “Premier” but have most of the Unified support characteristics and accompanying YOY egregious cost increases. Examples of 3 year forecasting for Premier/Unified are producing anticipated price increases of over 60% — and in some cases mushrooming to over 85%.
