Big Easy Gets a Boost
Microsoft is pumping up its Big
Easy partner promotion
, the $10 million incentive plan that gives SMB customers
subsidy checks made out to partners for the purchase of Microsoft software.
The program was designed to consolidate Microsoft's confusing array of subsidy
programs, and with a sliding scale of incentives, to increase the size of the
subsidy check when partners up-sell, cross-sell or sell more expensive licensing
packages to customers.
On Wednesday, Microsoft announced additions to the offer, which runs through
the end of Microsoft's fiscal year, ending June 27. Microsoft is adding higher
subsidies on Windows Server and Small Business Server, Open License and Software
Assurance (LS&A) coverage for SQL Server, Windows Server and Small Business
Server product groups, and Open License for Office Project.
