How to prepare for the upcoming Microsoft 365 price increase

Starting March 1, 2022, Microsoft will raise the fees of three products, with annual increases (per user) of:

  • Office 365 E3 and E5: $36
  • Microsoft 365 E3: $48

For an organization with 20,000 employees, this M365 E3 uplift would cost an additional $960,000 per year. And not actively measuring and managing these licenses often results in two costly challenges:

  • Over-purchasing: Your licenses exceed the number assigned.
  • Under-utilization: Poor user adoption means assigned licenses go untouched.
