Feature Announcement: Smart Compare

We’re very excited today, to announce the release of a game-changing new feature for azure costs: Smart Compare.

Smart Compare allows our customers to conveniently compare their monthly cloud costs with the costs of any previous month. By simply choosing the relevant months, azure costs now highlights cost spikes and deflections, so that our customers can focus on the costs they are really interested in – and ignore those they’re not.

These results can then be sorted and powerful filters allow our customers to limit what they see, to only what they’re interested in.

We are sure that this great feature will help our costumers to identify the real cost drivers and make informed decisions on cost optimization strategies.

How to get started?
Comparing cloud costs is this simple: The Smart Compare and sorting functionality can be used right now as part of our Preview UI. Just select multiple months as shown above, to identify cost drivers, spikes and deflections.

Interested in the SmartCompare feature?
Try the new feature today by simply logging into your azure costs portal. Smart Compare is part of every paid plan, starting with the Professional subscription.

After all, high workforce productivity and satisfaction are directly related to the functionality, efficiency and security of the work environment. Similar to the ancient Greek temple builders, MyWorkspace relies on the tested and proven pillar principle.

No company that moves into the cloud will just throw away their equipment to set up completely new cloud workspaces. Most companies take their existing “furniture”, i.e., existing applications along and add some cloud “furnishings” to set up hybrid clouds where multiple applications are connected and data are exchanged automatically. Independent from the details of the workspace set-up, it is the following three pillars that form the foundation of the cloud workspace:
