Legacy CSP Incentives

Hi there,

 

We are currently in the midst of transitioning all of our commercial customers to NCE before the end of the year, so we don't loose our incentive payments. While looking through the materials on this subject, all the materials say that legacy incentives will end come January. There is no mention of other verticals that cannot be moved - Government, Education and Non Profit - in that material. So my question is, will we still be eligible to earn CSP incentives on non commercial CSP licenses come January 1, as they are actually "legacy" licenses?

 

Thanks in advance!

@megelkraut An internal source also got back to me with the following: 

 

"We recently shared a blog providing an early preview of our future incentives. We will be providing details in‌ September, with them going live in October."

 

I hope you find this he‌lpful! Tagging @saramc in case she has more resources or answers for us.

I was on the Americas Licensing call just now and asked the question above. I was told that anything that COULD be moved to NCE will no longer be eligible for incentives after the first of the year. If something is NOT avaiable in NCE i.e. anything in EDU, NP or Gov, you will still receive incentives. I will be waiting patiently for the announcements next week around the new programs but I just thought I would provide an update on this!

Wanted this string to see the latest post on incentives. 🙂

 

Partners can now directly nominate customer projects to AMMP to migrate and modernize!

Thank you, v-jillarmour, for sharing this announcement. To clarify, if we have an advanced offer with a customer who will be purchasing their Azure as a new CSP customer, the AMMP nomination would go through this direct submission, or does that scenario still require a MSFT FTE? And, if the MSFT FTE has already submitted the opportunity, does this need to be resubmitted? Appreciate the verification.

@TracyD I have connected with an internal team member and this was his response to your question: 

 

"For this question you asked, it sounds like that Partner had already submitted in the Field-led AMMP path - in which case they would continue on that path with no changes. For any other new submissions, they would have the choice for either AMMP Field-led or AMMP Partner-led. They are two paths, cannot be cross or combined."

 

I hope this helps answer your question. 🌻

@TracyD I am not subject matter expert on this, so I will ask internally for you and see what I can turn up.

It has always been my understanding that, since there are areas where there is no NCE equivalent (yet), then there would be nothing to worry about (yet).

@TracyD I've just been informed that FY23 program overviews will be posted on MPN on August 4th with full program guides posted on Sept 1st. These details can be found at Partner Investments and Incentives Blog and I will reposting that info in this forum to help connect the dots. 🙂 Stay tuned!

@TracyD Still waiting to hear back about when the blog will update. It was intended to post on the 4th, so I'm now tracking this for you and will post the link as soon as I see it update. 🙂

@TracyD Ok! I have some new info:

 

The new FY23 incentive program overviews are posted on MPN here: https://partner.microsoft.com/en-us/membership/partner-incentives. The FY23 guides will be available on MPN starting September 1, 2022, prior to the October 1, 2022 start date.

 

A partner would follow these steps to locate the overviews, which are posted with the FY22 assets (guides, etc.)

 

I hope this answers your inquiry!
