More AWS Savings Plans Pros »

"We don't actually use the Azure Cost Management features. We have our own capabilities. We put our own technology on top of Azure as Azure doesn't deliver a really good cost optimization, so our customers come to us to enhance what they're potentially doing inside their Azure platform.""Microsoft Azure Cloud Cost Management is easy to use and we have a lot of insights about all of our goals.""The most valuable aspect of the solution is the fact that it's extremely customizable. It makes it very flexible in terms of usage.""Good control features and user interface.""The most valuable feature is that it helps us to better forecast and reduce costs.""Microsoft's technical support is good.""The interface is good, and it's easy to manage."

That would help improve the product a lot, at least for our purposes.""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.""Optimization and scalability could be increased."
