Upgrade 安博电竞 NAV to 安博电竞 Central

When Microsoft 安博电竞 365 安博电竞 Central was fully launched in October , we explained that this was the next generation for Microsoft 安博电竞 NAV. As with most of the products from Microsoft, there is a transition in licensing to a named user basis, which means that people who own concurrent licenses will have to transition their licenses as they upgrade. When the 安博电竞 Central was launched in October, there was a lot of discussion about the transition policy. 

At the time, Microsoft had announced that customers upgrading from perpetual licenses would get 2 full named users for every full concurrent user. However, the limited users that were transitioning to team members would only get a 1 to 1 transition. 

A voice within Microsoft

As Microsoft partners, our job is to understand the market, and this sometimes means that we have a better understanding of the end user requirement than Microsoft. Following the above release, some of our team attended the Directions EMEA event, where partners gather to learn about and discuss the latest releases in 安博电竞 NAV and this year the release of 安博电竞 Central. 

At the licensing seminar, Catherine Ross, who specialises in knowing how businesses operate with nearly 20 years in the industry, stood up in front of several hundred partners to let Microsoft know the issues with a 1-to-1 transition. Her account was a met with a round of applause, and the licensing experts from Microsoft met with Catherine following the session. 

The new License Transition
