Get ongoing visibility and governance
A streamlined dashboard offers a range of reports on key functions such as cost and cost trends, asset locations and the provider accounts and asset types that are driving spending. The dashboard uses graphics to highlight areas of special interest or concern in your hybrid cloud environment.
