Azure Consumption Analytics

Unprecedented Insight for Superior Cloud Consumption Decision-Making

Managing a cloud infrastructure means looking at how you make budgetary decisions in a new way.
While there are economic benefits to cloud computing, having the ability to scale resources up and down can make budget forecasting a significant hurdle for many organizations.

Making Sense of your Azure Bill

When a monthly Azure Bill arrives, it can be a challenge to decipher. For many customers, the bill lacks the depth of data they need to understand the “why” behind their cloud costs. When examining their Detailed Usage Reports to get more depth, they find that the opposite is true and they are drowning in a sea of unstructured data that is difficult to aggregate and even more difficult to analyze. In addition to these challenges, all this data is available after-the-fact, so even if you can locate underlying issues, it’s too late to take action to prevent a spike in spending.
