Uncontrolled Cloud Spending
Azure makes it easy to deploy cloud servers and instantly scale infrastructure to meet demand, but many organizations lack the insight and expertise to ensure that spending doesn’t spiral out of control. Unused or underutilized Azure infrastructure dramatically inflates cloud costs, and billions of dollars are wasted each year on idle cloud resources. Rightsizing VMs and other services is often a highly beneficial cost reduction strategy, but there are dozens of other effective cost control strategies that require an ongoing investment in platform knowledge, operational insight, and governance.
Azure is a complex platform with hundreds of services and pricing options. Efficient cost management requires understanding, choosing, and managing the right combination of services, from VM instance types to payment plans, to storage, to licensing, and more. Many organizations lack the right combination of available resources and the expertise to continually manage and optimize their infrastructure.
Reduced Insight Into Infrastructure Spending
Most companies do not know how their cloud budget is spent and who is accountable for spending it. They lack the monitoring tools and governance structures needed to understand and control cloud spending. Unless they know how and why their organization uses Azure, they cannot align spending with business objectives and real-world requirements.
