Microsoft announced last week that CSP Direct Bill Partners, in addition to all the other program prerequisites, will be on the hook for $300K in annual revenue in 2021. This new requirement is shaking up the CSP community, as many Direct CSPs have come to the realization that their current business model does not support that level of CSP revenue attainment.
At Stratos Cloud Alliance (SCA), we understand the sacrifice and commitment you made to be a direct bill partner. There are dozens of criteria you had to meet, and it took time and money to attain the status of Direct CSP. Further, your customers have come to rely on the level of solutions and services you can provide as a direct bill partner.
In light of the announcement, you are probably wondering about the future of your CSP business. What are your options? What does this mean for your customers? SCA is here to help you preserve what you’ve built. What’s more, we can help support your continued growth.
