Next Step: Complete Transition
On 1 September, 2015 the 2010 packaging options will retire.

Why?
Recognize that the majority of new deals and renewals is on the current
model
Some partners sell the new model exclusively.

Eliminate confusion
Sellers can now focus conversations on value proposals instead of tactical decisions around which
pricing model to use.

Simplify selling motion


Reduce the number of SKUs that sellers and customers have to manage.

Now what about the 2010 model?
Retirement on 1 September 2015
Customers must switch to the new model at renewal
After 1 September, grandfathering rules will apply
2010 SKUs available only through exception process upon robust business justifcation

The transition is proving to be cost-neutral in most cases
