Microsoft Dynamics 365 offerings available with new pricing starting October 2024

Dynamics 365 by Microsoft has arguably contributed significantly to how organizations operate. Using Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) processes, there is a seamlessly integration of applications across various business domains, including marketing, sales, customer and field service, finance, operations, and supply chain management. This connectivity enhances process efficiency and effectiveness. 

According to Microsoft, after more than five years of Microsoft Dynamics 365 hitting the market, starting October 1, 2024, will see new price hikes for the Dynamics 365 suite of products.  

Which of the Dynamics 365 suite of products will have price increase? 

The price changes will affect both cloud-based and on-premises. However, pricing for cloud offerings such as Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central, will stay the same. Below are the Dynamics 365 products and their new prices effective October 1, 2024. 

Will all customers be affected by the price changes? 

Starting October 1, 2024, price increases will be implemented worldwide for both new and renewing customers, with product pricing adjusted equivalently in various currencies. In adherence to local laws, US government list prices for these products will see a 10% increase on October 1, 2024. This will be followed by a subsequent, smaller increase on October 1, 2025, to align government pricing with the commercial rates mentioned.
