Microsoft Decision on Internal Use Rights Doesn’t Inspire Partners

with 2 Comments by Tony Redmond

Microsoft's decision to make its partners pay commercial rates for software licenses might seem logical at first glance, but it's not helpful in a world where cloud technologies change so often. The problem I have is that anything that might prevent partners acquiring knowledge about Microsoft technologies is a bad thing for customers who depend on those partners. It should be interesting to see if any spirited debates happen at next week's Inspire conference.
