Traditionally, you buy your licenses up front based on an educated estimate of future requirements via a volume licensing agreement, usually for three years. Once purchased you are committed to that quantity of licences, so if, for whatever reason, you deploy them later than planned or not at all then that investment cannot recouped.
Using CSP is different.
It gives your organisation the ability to provision your Microsoft cloud licences and services as and when you need them. It also lets you manage your costs better by increasing and decreasing quantities as often as required. CSP is a modern licensing platform which helps us support you to managing your cloud lifecycle, this includes billing, 24/7 support helpdesk and access to Trustmarque’s unique Cloud ESP portal which lets you self-provision, manage and analyse your spending.
