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 subscriptions or Azure EA or CSP, and the customer will then provide us with credentials, and then we would basically automate all of the customer mediation across Azure. We would identify approximate remediation times as suggested across many different services, and then automatically put in policy-based workflows that would continue to remediate the services deployed within the Azure environment. We do certify our platform with the Azure certification programs. We are certified in the marketplace in terms of connecting to the marketplace and their APIs. We look at deeper aspects of the product and read up on technical support about the Azure console front end. Overall, I would recommend it to small and medium businesses. I wouldn't recommend it to large enterprises due to the lack of automation. I do quite like the product and would rate it seven out of ten.

We have our license for one year. We will use this solution during that time, after that, we will evaluate other solutions that are available in the market and decide if we will continue or move to another solution. I would recommend this product to anyone who is deploying to the cloud. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

I'm just a customer. I don't have any kind of special relationship with Azure. I would rate the solution seven out of ten. I really like the solution. I don't know if I have any recommendations to other users. It just works well.

My advice for anybody who is implementing this solution is to carefully consider the design. If the design gets too complex then it will lead to poor performance. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

I would advise people to aim for functionality, and not to spend money they don't have. In Azure and other services, sometimes you can forget about services you have, you're not using them and you're still paying for them. Cost Management helps with controlling that. I would rate this product a seven out of 10.

My advice to others would be that they should use it. They should try it out - it's a very good solution, and it gives a very detailed analysis as your subscription costs. I would like the developers to add more features about migration, like how much it would cost to migrate from, let's say, AWS to Azure. That would be great. On a scale from 1 to 10, where 1 is the worst and 10 is the best, I rate Azure Cost a good 9.

The biggest lesson I have learned from this solution is that free tools are a must. They're great. I would rate it a ten out of ten.
