Good reporting and ideal for small to medium-sized companies but needs better policy-based remediation
What is our primary use case?
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.
Pros and Cons

"The policy-based remediation is probably the biggest area where Azure is lacking and that's why we sell a lot of our technology to our customers."
What other advice do I have?
We're a cloud management company. I run sales, so I am not using the solution to any great technical extent. We have a technical relationship with Azure. We're very integrated with Azure. Not just from a Cost Management perspective, but also from orchestrated Azure services. We're an extra service delivery platform. We actually hook into Azure, Alibaba, GCP, AWS, OpenStack, Nutanix, VMware. We're hooked into 27 different public cloud providers and private hypervisor solutions. The solution is a SaaS-based product. We run our own platform. We basically have a SaaS service. We connect into Azure…
