A unified platform where the key activities related to costing can be carried out in a single platform can prove to be a major game changer for organisations who operate at a large scale.
With Azure’s cost optimization tool, you can delegate essential tasks such as looking after investments, freeing up resources, keeping a track of budget usage, predicting future expenses and best use of available resources in the most cost-efficient way possible.
