Control your cloud spend with Microsoft Azure Plan

Microsoft Azure Plan is here. The way in which businesses are adopting technology has changed rapidly, particularly in the last 6 months. As we navigate the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are changing. A number of businesses have taken the leap to permanently migrate their on-premise IT infrastructure to the cloud. This is being done in order to improve their resilience and flexibility.

The technology market however is becoming increasingly difficult to navigate. Businesses are often left confused and unclear on cost, provisioning and support. So how can you take advantage of the benefits of cloud without the complexity and spiralling cost?

The answer is simple: Azure Plan.

Azure Plan is a new commerce platform for MSPs and customers to buy and manage their Microsoft Azure Services. Azure, a global and scalable cloud ecosystem, can be a complex service to navigate depending on your business requirements. With Azure Plan, businesses can enjoy a single touchpoint for streamlined management of their Azure services through their reseller.

The new platform unlocks some impressive benefits for businesses, such as:

• Monitoring cloud spend

Customers can track resource usage and use rich insights to make informed decisions on scaling their services up or down. Resellers can support customers better by governing their spend and providing more transparent advice.

• Optimising cloud efficiency

Customers and their resellers can gain recommendations on areas in which they could save money or improve their efficiency.

• Enjoying a clear view on spend

Gone are the days of suffering that unfortunate bill shock at the end of the month. With Azure Plan, you can check usage and spend on-demand. This allows you to manage (or the reseller can manage on behalf of) your services quickly.

Azure Plan also offers an enhanced pricing system, offering consistent prices for customers and their resellers. Businesses can get those important quotes and figures that much easier from their resellers. With a simplified and transparent pricing structure, businesses are also rewarded with cheaper pricing for higher volumes of usage.

Another major enhancement that comes with Azure Plan is fixed exchange rate prices: all resource prices will be fixed against the global USD price every month and adjusted into the end customer currency. Businesses will benefit from predictable pricing without the unwanted charges.

In the current climate, having faith in your IT set-up is crucial. Azure can support businesses in becoming more resilient, more flexible and more cost efficient, and Azure Plan removes any confusion when it comes to buying and provisioning.
