Our current problems

*Remove the problems that are not applicable to your organization, and add any that are missing.*

  • Nobody in our organisation knows if our tagging standard is adhered to

  • We know there is some good information in our tags but it’s very inconsistent

  • Changing or merging tags is a very laborious process which includes writing custom scripts

  • For compliance purposes we need to ensure that all resources are tagged with a certain tag e.g. data classification but we don’t have a method to report or govern this

  • I would like to run tag based cost reports but always see “untagged” as a cost

  • I would like to look at my environment through metrics meaningful to my business, like applications/system owner/cost centre but don’t know how to achieve thathave a method to achieve this at scale.

  • I would like to share Azure cost data with my team to drive visibility and consumption cost accountability

  • As an application owner I’m responsible for resources across a number of subscriptions and I’m unable to maintain visibility in terms of cost and compliance

  • I am unable to identify the biggest cost drivers in my Azure environment by resource, resource type, resource group or any metric used as tag.

How could CloudClarity help?

*Edit from our existing list, and add any other ways that CloudClarity will help to address problems within your organization.*

  • Consolidate inconsistencies in tag keys and values. For example if a tag key or tag value have the same meaning but spelled differently (App Name, Application, Application Name etc.). CloudClarity provides an easy to use web interface to consolidate tag keys and also provides bulk import\export functions to consolidate tag keys in Excel.

  • Change the name of a tag key or value in your whole environment. CloudClarity provides an easy to use web interface to rename tag keys and values in bulk. For example change a cost centre code.

  • Allocate Azure Usage Cost to a cost centre in real time. New resources are added to your deployment but are not tagged. In tag based reports where we can see breakdowns of your Azure cost that are meaningful to your business this cost will show as untagged and need to be assigned to a cost centre. With CloudClarity you can allocate this cost in real time

  • Verify your environment against minimum suggested and Additional common tags as defined in the Microsoft Cloud Adoption frameworkhttps://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cloud-adoption-framework/ready/azure-best-practices/resource-tagging

  • Validate Tag Health against a set of tag key that are important to your organisation or role. Finance departments, Project Managers, Application owners, engineers etc. have a set of tag keys which are important to them. A project manager might be interested in keys like Business Unit, Cost Centre, Owner where an engineer might be interested in tag keys like Disaster Recovery, Service Class or Environment

  • Validate Tag Health for compliance purposes. If you have a tag key, say like data classification you need to ensure that all or a specific subset in your environment are tagged correctly and maintained. With Cloud Clarity you can provide a report to validate tag health for a specific tag key with the press of a button

  • Provide personalised Azure usage cost data, broken down in to categories meaningful to your business. CloudClarity provides configurable personalised dashboards where resource information and consumption cost data can be summarised, filtered, compared and tracked.

  • Identify biggest cost drivers based your categorisation, resource group, resource type or resource. Cloud clarity provides a unique set of reports to identify biggest cost drivers

What is CloudClarity?

CloudClarity is easy to use SaaS application helping you to maintain control of your cloud environment. With CloudClarity you can bulk edit Azure tags, analyse and share dashboards on your consumption cost by breaking it down into metrics meaningful to your business and as well as verify and manage your tag health against set standards. All this helps to improve control, cloud governance and consumption cost visibility.

How does CloudClarity compare to other alternatives?

*Remove any of the alternatives that are not relevant to your organisation, and add any others that you might be considering or have used previously but didn't work.*

  • We are currently managing tags manually. Which is very labour intensive and we are never consistent or up to date.

  • We are currently writing scripts to change and manage tags. This process is very laborious and can’t be easily shared within the team

  • We are currently using Azure Cost Analysis for our reporting. But only few people know how to run reports and actually look at the data so we are missing out on optimisation and cost savings

How will we start using CloudClarity?

*Edit and modify as necessary with more detail on how you plan to trial CloudClarity within your organisation.*

  • We can start trying CloudClarity as a free trial and get clarity on our tag health and can start streamlining tags and benefit for from the cost reports to understand our consumption costs.

  • At the end of the trial we can purchase CloudClarity through the Microsoft Marketplace in our local currency on a monthly basis. There is NO lock in contract.

How much does CloudClarity cost?
