Spend Optimization as a Service is a service from the Supplier that helps our customers continuously optimise the cost of the use of Azure services. The service aims to reduce overspending and through proactive measures ensure that the cost and use of Azure services are in line with actual needs. The service is provided by a team of specialists in the field and consists of continuous monitoring and regular data analysis of the customer's Azure costs and consumption.
By looking at elements such as reserved instances, use of Azure Saas and PaaS services v Paas and IaaS, evaluate daily usage statistics, unused disks etc. we identify a set of concrete suggestions for how the customer can optimize their Azure costs. This will ensure happier customers and will benefit both Microsoft, Sopra Steria and the customer themselves.
All the analysis and information can be found in our own-developed PowerBI solution, which presents the customer a set (currently 20) pre-defined reports, showing historical measures, monthly comparisons etc. to easily give the customer a good overview of their costs and suggestions for improvements.
