Pros
"The resource forecasting feature is invaluable. Secondly, the ability to drill down to the regional and resource level is incredibly helpful for pinpointing where my costs are accruing.""The most valuable features of Azure Cost Management are the ability to set standards or tagging policies and initiatives. You can achieve higher cost optimization.""The most valuable feature is that our customers can see their consumption in real time. Even though we have a couple of analytics provided by our company, those are not in real time.""The solution helps us diagnose and understand why some resources cost more so that we can fine-tune and reduce the cost.""My organization benefits from the tool's performance and time-saving features.""The features that I have found most valuable, are the trend analysis and the budgetary trigger.""The initial setup process is easy.""I like the granularity of the tools."

"The solution is scalable for our purposes.""It will automatically suggest areas for optimization.""The most valuable feature of CloudCheckr CMx High Security is granular reporting. Additionally, the user interface is easy to use.""The initial setup is straightforward.""The solution is mostly stable.""It's one of the leading players for cloud optimization. It's hard to find anything better.""The best feature I like about CloudCheckr CMx High Security is its simplicity. I love that it's not rocket science to use the solution. Even if you're not familiar with the cloud, you can easily figure out how to use CloudCheckr CMx High Security. You can use AWS, you can use Azure, and you can use GCP with the solution because the integration is quite simple. You can also use multi-cloud with it, and you could see the billing part. You'll have complete visibility into your cost which I love about the solution. I also love that data on any security issues and vulnerabilities are available on the go with CloudCheckr CMx High Security. You don't need to do anything different. Just run the scan and you'll have all these open findings in the tool, in terms of the priority level, so if it's critical, it will tell you, "It's critical," and you need to fix it right away."

Cons
"Azure Cost Management should be made cheaper.""The solution's technical support should be faster, more knowledgeable, and customer-friendly.""Improved integration with other solutions could definitely be beneficial.""I would like to see some features included for costing and more information about the components of deployment. Sometimes, it's very difficult to match the component with the solution because the descriptions are not very clear.""We have encountered delays in support.""The solution could use automatic emailing. That would help improve the product a lot, at least for our purposes.""It can be difficult to determine the cost associated with certain resources as it relies on a tagging progress. This means we need to drill down billing reports to highlight and fix missing tags.""We would like to see more flexibility added to this solution, such as being able to compare reservations, or compare costs across multiple financial years and report on the reasons for deviation in spend."

"CloudCheckr CMx High Security is complex. There are a lot of menus, and if you do not know what you are looking for you can get lost. However, the interface is self-explanatory. It's easy to understand where to go to get what you want.""The solution needs to work better with larger capacities of data.""The solution must improve its user interface.""What needs to be improved in CloudCheckr CMx High Security is integration. All the clouds are going quite fast, for example, all the cloud providers: Microsoft, Google, etc. CloudCheckr CMx High Security is good with AWS, no doubt about it, but with Azure and Google Cloud, I find that the solution is slow in that direction. If the vendor planned for CloudCheckr CMx High Security to be automated just for AWS, then it does make sense. If not, if the vendor is also targeting good integration with Google and Microsoft, then CloudCheckr CMx High Security integration needs improvement, in particular, it has to be faster. At the moment, its integration with Azure is not as good as its integration with AWS. With GCP, integration is nowhere.""Many features still need to be implemented in this tool.""Self-healing could be a bit smoother and a bit cleaner, easier to access and more functional. That would help.""The performance of the tool really needs to be improved."
