How much will it cost to implement Azure cloud management software in my business?

This can range based on the provider; some who provide integrated observability require integration points and extended setup. This can be a project in itself like the tools available in Azure to configure and set up.

CloudOps from igroup is a different approach; it's plug and play with AWS and Azure. Once plugged in, it starts to collect cost and monitoring information about your specific workloads. This then populates the single pane of glass dashboard. The cost reduction services then start to use that data about cost and demand to make recommendations to reduce cost but balance performance right away. This can then be built on with more advanced monitoring, patching and auto-scaling functionality.
