Microsoft Software Assurance Deployment Planning Services Extranet...Disappeared!

Since last week, the url  https://planningservices.partners.extranet.microsoft.com now redirects to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/partner-center/software-assurance-dps.

 

Microsoft just broke support for their Partners.  Even the resources page has been killed off:  https://partner.microsoft.com/en-ca/solutions/exchange-online

 

We have at least one engineer tonight sending out emails to our team, asking where he can get access to materials to deliver a  Exchange Deloyment PLanning Services (EDPS)  a workshop tomorrow.

 

All of the PPT decks, pre-engagement questionnaires, planning calculators…have all gone.  

 

We might be faced with having to use Demo tenants to deliver some of these design engagements (https://cdx.transform.microsoft.com/experiences)

 

Poor.

Re: Microsoft Software Assurance Deployment Planning Services Extranet...Disappeared!

Hello @stuinsight ,

 

Thank you very much for pointing out the broken links.

A ticket has been submitted to resolve this link, I will get back with feedback as soon as I get it:  https://partner.microsoft.com/en-ca/solutions/exchange-online. 

Meanwhile, please check these resources, let me know if it helps:

This is a link to Exchange 2010 End of Support info - https://partner.microsoft.com/en-us/asset/collection/exchange-server-2010-end-of-support-training#/ and this is a link to all of our partner resources - https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/partners/resources/?filters=teamwork - once you arrive at this page, I would recommend sorting by "name" and all of our resources start with the word "Exchange" so they are all together.

The software assurance documentation is the correct link. Is there any information in particular that you are looking for ?

 

Kind regards,

Andra

I don't think you understand the issue.

This has nothing to do with Exchange. That's only one component of the DPS offering.

The entire Deployment Planning Service website and all of the resources for ALL DPS resources has been taken down.

Hello Stuart,

 

Thank you for clarifying, I have addressed the issues (broken links), based on the indications from your previous post. 

 

I investigted further and you should acccess the official site for Software Assurance Planning Services for more detailshttps://partner.microsoft.com/en-US/Marketing/planning-services

According to this page, Starting February 2020, we’re updating our Software Assurance benefits to modernize certain services and simplify redemptions. 

 

These changes begin February 1, 2020 and will gradually be fully implemented by January 1, 2022, hence I encourage you to read this FAQ and this resource for in-depth information regarding DPS changes and next steps.

 

Hope this helps,

Andra

You're not grasping the point of my question.  We're escalating through other channels.
