Microsoft Channel Digs Discounts

Service-focused solutions providers could stand to gain from Microsoft’s (MSFT) license discounting. The company is making a push to jolt adoption of Windows 7 and the upcoming 2010 – and where partners usually might feel shorted by discounts cutting into margins, they are reporting satisfaction with increased customer service opportunities.

In order to obtain the discounts, a customer must purchase through the Open Value Licensing program, which means they must go through an indirect channel to reap the benefits.
