Software licensing via the Cloud Services Portfolio (CSP)

The Cloud Services Portfolio (CSP) is a new way to buy software licenses. It’s flexible to suit your business needs, with minimal upfront investment and no long term commitment.

What is CSP?

CSP is a new way to pay for software as you use it, and as your business needs dictate. You can easily scale up or down, and the consumption model means you pay per month, per head, per license. CSP is flexible and intuitive because everything is procured and managed through the cloud.

Moving to CSP enables you to shift the cost of your software licensing from CAPEX to OPEX with monthly payments.

Which software licenses are included in CSP?

Currently, we have a full range of Microsoft licenses available to purchase via CSP, including Office 365.
If you have a specific licensing requirement that’s not covered, please do talk to us and we would be happy to discuss your needs in further detail.

Why cloud?

Microsoft developed CSP to meet the demands of the modern workplace, where IT solutions must be mobile-first. A move to the cloud is key to support this change, but what’s driving it?

The data mountain

The phenomenal rate at which we’re creating data means we have to look at new ways to manage and process it effectively. Even in 2010, ex-Google CEO Eric Schmidt said: “We create as much data in two days now as we did from the dawn of civilisation to 2003”.

Increase in connected devices

IT teams now have to ensure that their solutions can scale up according to the number of devices they’re supporting – not the number of people in the business. Take a moment to think about how many devices you have access to on daily basis (it’s probably not just one).

Cloud computing become a reality

Cloud computing isn’t a fad or just a buzzword any more; it’s an everyday reality. Almost all businesses work with data and apps in the cloud already, and many have embraced its advantages.
