The Manager of cloud operations in an organization constantly faces the following challenges regarding cost visibility and optimization in the delivery of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS).

What is the total spending and of what is it comprised?

What is the cost of delivering a unit of IaaS?

How does consumption change over time?

What are these services used for and what is the cost allocation for each?

How is my cost efficiency compared to that of other public cloud infrastructures?

What is the cost of potential alternatives to delivering IaaS?

How do I use the information above to optimize the cost of my existing and future operations?

How do I create an accurate consumption report to show it to the stakeholders?
