Can customers stay on CSP?

Featured Image

No. Certain products will only be available on the New Commerce Experience (NCE) platform from March 2022. The NCE program is currently live, but until the program becomes mandatory, customers can continue to use the Cloud Solutions Provider (CSP) platform.

Phase 2 of the transition is expected in February 2022, and unless we hear otherwise the date for the NCE platform to become mandatory is currently set to be some time in March 2022.

In the meantime, a phased approach will be taken to incentivise the use of the NCE platform over the legacy CSP platform, and certain products will not continue to be offered on the CSP platform between March 2022 and July 2023. It is expected that all CSP subscriptions must be moved to the NCE platform by July 2023.
