How a CloudOps Active Management Solution Can Greatly Reduce Your Azure Pricing

Adopting the Azure cloud can transform your organisation, delivering vast gains in speed, agility, and performance of IT systems, while removing the need for outdated hardware.

But you should be aware that budgeting for the cloud is very different concept to traditional IT systems. Those differences cause most businesses serious challenges somewhere down the line.

There are many reasons why your Azure pricing may increase unexpectedly once the technology is deployed, from incorrect configuration to mismanagement of resources.

But those challenges are inevitable unless you have constant monitoring, management, and optimisation in place for your cloud usage and spending.

Thankfully, there are cost-effective ways to achieve the pervasive visibility needed to solve these Azure pricing issues.

For example, here at igroup, we’ve developed a unique custom CloudOps Active Management Solution (CAMS) specifically for this purpose. CAMS combines sophisticated automated processes and advanced tools, designed to give you full control of your cloud environment with minimal effort.

This simple, user-friendly solution de-mystifies all the complexity of cloud cost management. Even if you don’t have a technical background, you’ll be able to easily use CAMS for:

  • Automated reporting, giving total real-time visibility and predictability of your bills
  • Continual monitoring of cloud usage, to prevent over-spending
  • Proactive optimisation of your cloud environment, to improve performance, reduce costs, and increase ROI.

Unlike a typical consultant or third-party product, CAMS already includes all the automated processes and functionality your business needs with no hidden or surprise charges.

Using innovative technology to match the complexity of the cloud, CAMS also frees up your time and budget so you can fully focus on running your business or IT department. CAMS achieves this by providing:

  • Accuracy
  • Agility
  • Simplicity
  • Reliability
  • Predictability
  • Consistency

This is the only way to gain absolute confidence that your IT budget will always be adhered to, and that your cloud systems will be running at optimum capacity. 

Whether you’re a business owner, IT director, or even a CFO, you can’t afford to be constantly worrying about how expensive your next cloud bill is going to be. Nor can you keep receiving surprise charges that exceed your monthly budget.

CAMS is a proven, efficient way to solve those challenges and reduce your spending on your Azure cloud.
