What is a MACC and why do companies have it?

MACC (the Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment) is a cloud spend commitment that a company agrees with Microsoft over a defined period of time. It can be used to buy proprietary cloud solutions on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform, and it’s effectively a budget that many people don’t realise they have. 

You may have MACC credits that you could redeem with Proventeq.

Why does a MACC allow you to procure services without additional spending?

As a committed spend agreement, a MACC allows customers to negotiate discounts with Microsoft, providing access to partnership opportunities.

That includes being able to access Proventeq’s solutions and services because we’re a Microsoft AI Cloud Partner with Azure IP co-sell eligible solutions on its Azure platform; our relevant solutions are therefore available as part of your MACC bundle. It’s a bit like having a form of credit with us: the budget is already allocated, meaning you won’t have to pay additional charges for any of Proventeq services that qualify under the agreement.

Why don’t I know about this?

Many organizations have a MACC, but often only key procurement or IT staff know about it. If in doubt, simply inquire within your organization or contact us.
