Microsoft 'Big Easy' Partner Subsidy is Back Until Dec. 31

Microsoft is dusting off the "Big Easy" partner subsidy program for another round of service.

A new version of Big Easy, called "Big Easy Offer 7," will start next Monday and run through Dec. 31 of this year.

"The Big Easy Offer 7 allows U.S. small and midsize business customers who make a qualifying purchase to earn a partner subsidy," Diane Golshan, a senior marketing manager at Microsoft, wrote Monday on the Microsoft U.S. Partner Team blog.

"Similar to previous Big Easy Offers, you can benefit from subsequent purchases of software solutions, hardware and/or services when customers cash in their subsidy checks. Partners tell us that the Big Easy Offer is a great conversation-starter with customers, and helps them close business," Golshan said.

New elements in this round of the Big Easy are the inclusion of Microsoft Online Services, a triple payout on Open Annuity licensing and higher subsidies for virtualization, server management and identity and security solutions.
