VIDEO: How to Manage Cloud Spend In Azure — With Your Endpoint of Choice

imageGet tips for visibility and management of your cloud spend in Azure using your endpoint of choice, from the Azure Cost Management portal, Power BI for custom views and reporting, to API-based integration that feeds cost data into your existing financial system. Matt McSpirit, Senior Program Manager for Microsoft Azure, joins Jeremy Chapman to share how you can configure your Azure environment to meet specific cost reporting needs.

Whether you’re from the IT team or the finance team, choose from a number of options:

  • Azure Cost Management in the Azure portal– Gives you the most comprehensive access to cost management views and reports.
  • Azure Cost Management Power BI app– Great visibility with pre-built views out-of-the-box to track your Azure spend at the account, subscription, and resource group level.
  • Power BI desktop connector– For more custom reporting, take our base Power BI template files and customize by building your own views.
  • API-based integration– For ultimate control and customization, use APIs directly to integrate the data within your internal apps and financial systems.
