This is a great news for everyone who is using Microsoft Office 365, the price of the Microsoft cloud services are dropping! Microsoft has slashes the prices for the Enterprise Suite of Microsoft Office 365.
The E1 plan which was $10 per user per month is now $8 per user; the E3 plan which was $24 per user and now is $20 per user.
Microsoft attributed this price reduction to the cost efficiencies of having more customers on Microsoft Office 365 resulting in lower costs to run the cloud system and thus they are passing the savings onto the business customers. The reduced prices take effect immediately for new and renewing customers. This is great news and it shows that Cloud computing works and that adding capacity and customers results in cost drops while increasing services offered, as Microsoft has been continuing to improve and add new features to the Office 365 stack.
