Our Cloud Cost Management report is presented in Power BI, and is a tool that helps organizations get a full overview of the costs associated with licenses and online services.
The report shows your total inventory of licenses and services, how they are assigned within the organization and the cost related to it.
Apart from only presenting the licenses and costs, it can also help you organize your AAD. You can use it to find inconsistencies, for example if multiple names have been used for same department or if any information is missing or incorrect. You can easily find gaps and discrepancies in your AD and act on them to get a clean and completed AD.
The information in the report can be sorted and filtered in multiple ways. The report presents all different license combinations that are assigned to users, the cost of each license and total cost per user. This way you can easily detect if users have been assigned duplicates and it also presents if there are any unassigned licenses, this is one way for you to save money and cut costs. You can sort and filter by user, user groups, country, department etc to see the total costs of licenses.
The cloud cost management report can be tailored to your needs, demonstrated and delivered in a workshop format. This way you can be completely confident that you understand the insights that can be found using it!
Cloud services are purchased on a user level and by using our report you will get full view of where the costs are allocated. This helps you get control of costs and to get an organized and up to date AAD.
We retrieve information by setting up a service account in your AAD. The service account does not need any special rights or even licenses. A PowerShell script runs in Azure Automation and locks the information to your own, encrypted Azure SQL database at Altitude 365. The data is gathered daily and updates the Power BI report which is published to a dedicated area in our environment and shared with appointed persons within your organization.
The report consists of a number of pages with different focus areas.You start by setting the overall filters to base the report on relevant information for you.There are a number of key values to filter on. Once you decide the areas you find most important for your organization to focus on, you will be able to use the report to sort and filter areas to act on.
Whether it’s just to find users with incorrect information in AD or running a report on the costs allocated per department within your organization, our Cloud Cost Management is the report for you!
