When you compare the module with other mid-segment packages, the price seems to be correct. But when a customer has 4 environments and has to install the marketing module on all 4 due to the correct testing of new modifications, it all becomes very expensive.
In the case of competing CRM apps, it is possible to upload the managed solutions into the sandbox environment at no extra cost.
How did others in this forum solve the problem of the ALM environment? How do you test updates?
I do not have a solution, just wanted to agree with you that this is troublesome. At this point, we are only installed in 1 environment and test the modifications there as well. It is not ideal but the cost of an additional install seems way to high to justify. If you add an idea here, I will vote for it.
I'm just echoing Stephani here. Today there is no other solution than going to the wallet if you want to test your solutions and/or Marketing app upgrades.
There is an Idea already with 13 votes that asks to cater ALM:
You can chime in there.
Today I heard the prices for October has been changed.
Still I will vote for the feature to make it free for sandbox environments. It will be a big game changer and will only expand the amount of clients which are interested in using it.
Thank you for your feedback on this subject. We are always evaluating our pricing models based on feedback from our customers. As noted in one of the responses, there is a new licensing and pricing guide as of October 1st. While a non-prod instance isn't free, the pricing is greatly reduced. Additionally, the portal pricing (under Power Apps now) has been changed so that it will be minimal for use in a pre-prod environment as well. If you do have more suggestions, please add an idea to the Dynamics 365 Idea portal. We watch community voting and we do pass along feedback to our pricing specialists to take into consideration.
Thanks so much.
