Microsoft Azure: Financial Operations Review

Microsoft Azure is an expensive way to host your workloads… isn’t it?

For many businesses, migrating services to Azure makes lots of practical sense, but when workloads are just ‘lifted and shifted’ from on premise to cloud the ongoing cost often exceeds both budgets and expectations.

Typically, companies start using Azure services without a thorough understanding of cost management. As a result, their Azure usage tends to expand organically, often leading to underutilised resources and inflated bills. The NAK Azure FinOps Review addresses this issue by providing a structured approach to analyse and optimise Azure spending.

This service plays a pivotal role in ensuring that every pound spent on Azure is an investment towards operational growth and not a needless expense. By embracing the NAK Azure FinOps Review, organisations can navigate their Azure journey not only with technological efficiency but also with financial prudence.


The Azure FinOps Review conducted by NAK helps to:

  • Reduce Azure operating costs.
  • Make monthly Azure spend more predictable.
  • Free up internal resource from time-consuming financial analysis.
