Assign responsible persons to subscriptions

We feel very lucky to have  engaged users who tell us about their cloud data management challenges and the functionality that they’d like to see added to azure costs. And we listen.

We’re continually deploying additional features that our users have been asking for to azure costs and here’s a great new functionality.

Assign responsible persons to subscriptions:
With the new functionality our users are able to assign responsible persons to one or more subscriptions. This helps team administrators to oversee who is the single point of contact (SPOC) in case of unusual spendings.

This enables every team administrator to act instantly on cost spikes what keeps cloud costs under control.

Azure Costs: Feature enhancements

Smart Compare now supports Excel/CSV export
Some weeks ago, we released the new Smart Compare feature, an effective way to compare cloud costs of various months with each other. Now the existing CSV-export functionality is able to export these important results of Smart Compare as well. This enables everyone to find and report cost spikes fast and reliable.

Disable Subscriptions
Azure Costs needs to be connected to every subscription to manage the costs of Pay-as-you-Go or Rate-Plan subscriptions. Not every administrator wants to set the required access permissions for all subscriptions existing in the associated Azure account. Now Azure Costs allows, to disable not needed subscriptions as shown below:

Team Activity Overview
Many team administrators would like to know, if the team members are taking their responsibility for specific subscriptions. Now administrators can see the Last Login information in the Manage Team overview, what gives helpful information if team members are checking cost reports on a regular basis.

How to get started?
All new features can be used right now as part of every plan. Try the new features today by simply logging into your azure costs portal.

Notomia for software licenses

Notomia – that was Leonardo da Vinci’s synonym for anatomy. In 1515, when a Papal decree prohibited the dissection of humans, he ignored this decree and dissected 30 men and women who had been executed, in order to study the structure and functioning of the human body. Neither the decree nor the significant risk of infection through dead bodies kept him from doing what he wanted to do, and his success justified the risks he had taken: he discovered arteriosclerosis and was probably the first among mankind to create drawings of a child in the mother’s womb. Even today, his 200 or so anatomic drawings are precious works of arts, combined with scientific precision and detail. And what applied to Leonardo da Vinci, is well worth to be applied to software license management: the more precise and accurate knowledge is supplied to license managers on the company’s license landscape, the…
