      I agree. The APIM pricing is not very well thought out and a bit too restrictive, especially at the Developer level. For a company that's just starting out in the web service space, the Developer level makes most economical sense, however, no SLA whatsoever and restrictions on number of calls and data transfer are too prohibitive. I think the current Developer level should be offered at half the price for testing purposes, and a Standard level should be introduced at the $49 price point with at least some SLA and better data transfer and calls rate.

        We’ll send you updates on this idea

        Folks,

        Thanks for the questions and suggestions. And apologies for not sharing any update on this thread for so long. We’ve been working on this problem and have announced changes on our official team blog (see here: https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2016/09/15/cleaning-up-the-azure-ad-and-microsoft-account-overlap/).

        First, we are acutely aware of the UX pain this is causing and we are sorry for this. We are trying to undo a decade and a half of systems divergence. There are literally hundreds of different engineering teams across Microsoft involved in this effort. So this is taking time.

        Second, we can’t easily “merge” two accounts, or allow IT to “take over” personal Microsoft accounts. There are two main hurdles: (1) The terms of service are fundamentally different for the two account types and (2) they are based on different technologies with different stacks (different identifiers, SDKs, token formats, etc.). We’re working to converge the two stacks but again this…
