As partners, we need to provide value and insights to our customers and Azure Cost Management delivers the tools to enable us to do just that - through:
monitoring and managing cloud spend
and optimising cloud efficiency.
With Azure Cost Management, Microsoft enables partners to manage customer resources across multiple clouds, and while it’s been available for Azure subscriptions purchased via credit card or Enterprise Agreement (EA) for a number of years, Cost Management is now available for Azure in CSP, free within Azure Plan.
Functionality enables the tracking of resource usage and costs across all of a customer’s clouds via a single, unified view, and with access to detailed operational and financial insights, partners and customers can together make informed decisions about cloud spend.
Azure Plan is Microsoft’s new commerce experience, created in response to the change in buying strategy which today sees business leaders a major influence in software purchase decisions. Designed to streamline the customer’s buying experience, Azure Plan is also intended to enable partners to provide the value-add services and guidance and support customers increasingly rely on.
As such, Azure Cost Management offers an amazing set of tools, that will really help partners optimise customer cloud efficiency and spend.
My eBook, Azure Cost Management, is free to download, and looks at the essential features in more detail. And, if you’d like more information, I’m happy to jump on a call, as are any of the other Azure experts here at Vuzion.
