Cost Management helps you simplify and rationalise the complex billing processes imposed upon you by your cloud providers. Through visual dashboards, proactive reporting, alerts and cost centre reconciliation you will gain valuable insight into what you are spending in cloud and the insight needed to bring this spend under control.
Visualise Your Cloud Activity
Buttonwood Central delivers a comprehensive Cost Management solution to help you understand and manage your cloud consumption in near real time through a detailed daily and monthly analysis, and historic invoicing.
Visualising your cloud activity will enable you to:
- Make informed decisions on how you spend in cloud;
- Understand what resources are being consumed in your budget;
- Create detailed reports to show your organisation executives.
Project Future Cloud Spend
Cost Management has the ability to forecast your future cloud spend, based on previous spending habits, using the sophisticated ARIMA model for forecasting.
Forecasting your cloud spend helps you:
- Stay within your monthly budget and keep your spending on track;
- Become increasingly proactive to cloud spending;
- Avoid the bill shock you feel at the end of the month.
Track Your Cloud Spend
Track and manage cloud costs and consumption according to your business structure. Allocate spend to corporately aligned cost centres, enabling data-driven business decisions that improve efficiency.
Tracking your spend ensures you can:
- Compare all of your Cloud Accounts and Sub Accounts;
- Define and track budgets for individual business units;
- Implement Cloud Control through proactive alerts and reports.
Make Sense of Your Invoices
