Microsoft’s Cloud Solution Provider (CSP) program continues to evolve and adapt to the changing needs of business. As part of this, Microsoft has been working to consolidate channels, simplify the customer’s buying journey and reduce licensing complexity.
To achieve this, Microsoft launched the New Commerce Experience (NCE) for Microsoft Azure in 2019. As of January 2022, they're expanding NCE to include Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, and Power Platform across their seat-based subscription services.
AMTRA can help you understand the impact that NCE will have on how you procure Microsoft 365 subscriptions and licenses. Let’s start by looking at what the NCE is.

We all love superheroes. They can throw fireballs, fly in the air, scale walls, shoot webs like a spider, make themselves invisible and even blend into any environment. But, did you know they can also teach us a thing or two about security.
You may not have to protect the universe from Thanos, but defending your organization from data security threats is pretty heroic too. So, what can an epic battle between Thanos and Marvel superheroes teach you about how to keep enterprise data safe? Read on to find out.
