Get accurate visibility of your Azure usage and security

Knowing exactly what your Azure usage is important – but often easier said than done.

Our experts will select and design a monitoring solution that enables you to understand and measure your real Azure usage and performance, and we’ll implement the Azure Resource Optimisation (ARO) toolkit to give you essential automation capability. We’ll also analyse your performance data and create a formal optimisation plan that includes not just technology, but people and processes elements too.

With HCO-A options to investigate security best practices and undertake a security optimisation review, Insight will enable you to run your Azure services optimally, securely and confidently.

Do away with wasted spend

Did you know that wasted cloud spend has been measured at 30–45%?*

Not surprisingly, optimising cloud costs is the top initiative across all cloud users (53%).* The good news is that Insight’s Azure professionals will help you – not just by giving you optimisation and service visibility to enable improved budgeting and cost projections, but also by advising on opportunities to minimise costs and spend only on resources that are needed.
