Microsoft keeps around the perpetual license – why?

Microsoft has announced that they will release a new perpetual license release for Microsoft Office in the second half of 2021.

Why do we care?

Simple story, but we care because Microsoft isn’t stupid – they recognize that some people WANT to buy something and own it, and not subscribe.   So, give them what they want.

There IS opportunity in those who aren’t doing things on subscription, and nothing HAS to be absolute.  There are benefits to a single model like subscription, but do not be dismissive of those alternative models.   Those who preached managed services is the only model have been proven wrong – best in class providers have a mix.

NOTHING is absolute…. Including that statement.
