Office 365, Microsoft’s online services offering has had a price cut.
Effective immediately, the new pricing is thus:
Was £6.50 Was £10.50 Was £15.75 Was £17.75
K1 has stayed the same but K2 has been reduced from £6.50.
The E3 SKU has been reduced by 16% and E1 by 19%.
The US price lists I’ve seen show that additional SharePoint storage has been reduced by 92%, from $2.50 to £.20! The UK site doesn’t currently contain pricing for this but I’ve asked for UK costs, so I’ll update this post once I hear back.
Some people will say these cuts are due to it not being as popular as hoped but I believe Microsoft’s reasoning about economy of scale & improved efficiency being the key drivers. We’re seeing some really great interest in Office 365 so far this year so I’d advise taking the naysayers with a pinch of salt
