Let's Start with 'Why' - Azure Cost Management

Implementing Altron Karabina’s Azure Cost Management Service can:

  • Mitigate BILL SHOCK! (When you open that unexpected and un-budgeted bill for Azure)
  • Help you review your architecture and plan your committed Azure consumption effectively
  • Provide you with insights into the opportunity that Azure cloud can deliver for you in the future.

Then 'What'

Altron Karabina views the approach to cost-saving of Azure spending through three levers.

The most often used is rearchitecting and engineering the environment, typically delivered through a ‘Landing zone design’ engagement or full environment architecture and implementation review.

The areas of ongoing cost tracking and awareness as well as ongoing continuous optimisation are often overlooked, and are critical next steps.

Re-Architecting

Review and possibly redesign your architecture to optimise for purpose and cost.

Cost Tracking

Track costs periodically, assign costs to applications or businesses and study infrastructure changes to enable business decisions.

Continuous Optimisation

Periodically propose recommendationsfor optimisations mitigating wasted costs.

And finally 'How'

Gartner’s Public Cloud Cost Management Framework is closely aligned to the approach that Altron Karabina proposes to customers.

Altron Karabina’s proposed ‘Cost Tracking’ and ‘Continuous Optimisation’ levers align to the Gartner Framework as you see on the right:

Cost Tracking

Cost tracking will cover a number of dimensions to ensure optimal cost management

Continuous Optimisation

Continuous optimisation is a proactive and preemptive service to ensure that the environment is operating effectively against changing needs, priorities and services.

Delivering on the Azure Cost Management Service

The service runs a monthly schedule that starts with the cost tracking and continuous optimisation analysis by our skilled and certified Azure Consultants (week 1)

Next, a consultative process of presenting, discussing and agreeing which of the recommendations can be implemented, aligned to your review and change processes (week 2 through 4)
