Microsoft stated that as of October 1, 2019, Dynamics plan style licenses will no longer be available to subscribers. Instead, customers will choose from an ala carte licensing plan. A “base license” will be sold with “attach licenses” available. These “attach licenses” will be heavily discounted. Microsoft feels that this move from “one-size-fits-all” Dynamics 365 licensing plans will focus on better providing customers with the specific Dynamics 365 applications that meet their organization’s unique needs. These Dynamics 365 Pricing Changes bring an opportunity to reduce costs.
Customers will now be able to buy the apps they need as opposed to buying the whole plan. This way, customers don’t get stuck paying for capabilities they don’t need or use. Although the new pricing model is on a per-app basis, the plan still allows for bundling multiple apps. Deals that close prior to October 1, 2019, however, should use the existing “plans and apps” model.
