The Vedomosti edition writes about this with reference to Microsoft partners and the director of the company’s public relations department in Russia. Prices will rise for Office Professional Plus, Office Standard, Windows Server Standard and Datacenter, RDS SAL (Remote Desktop Service). Also, the cost of CIS Standard license kits will grow by 5%, CIS Datacenter – by 7%.
It is noted that prices have risen all over the world, and not only in Russia. It should be noted that the above software is used mainly by small and medium-sized businesses. Regular users will not be affected by this increase. However, the General Director of Inoventica Services Vitaly Slizen believes that user prices for Microsoft products will still rise by 5%.
