We primarily sell the solution to our clients. We also have our own solution. We do cost reporting including budgets and budget alerts and unused services like SQL databases, ABMs, managed disk, Cosmos DB, service plan and usage, and the detailing of all of that.

We use this solution to help with setting up our yearly budget. We look at how much we are currently using on a monthly basis how and close we are to meeting the monthly budget. If we find that we are going over then it helps to adjust the yearly budget. We also look at what resources have been used more extensively in the current month as opposed to last. The dashboard allows us to make these comparisons. From here, we can optimize resources and reduce costs. In the end, we also develop new resources. Ideally, we can look ahead to see what we can expect by making changes to certain resources. This is done by looking back at previous months and seeing what the effects were for other changes. Our second use case has to do with projecting profitability by looking at trends. We are looking at one-year relationships to search for tending patterns.

We were looking for cloud cost management but also the ability to have insight for all our deployment infrastructure.

We use Azure Cost Management to see how much we are spending as well as how much the client is spending. That is the only use case for Azure Cost Management.

Self-healing could be a nice addition to this solution. It would be nice if they had self-healing. It would be good if they could introduce connections to other clouds. It would be good to connect to AWS and Oracle cloud.
