In the previous chapters, we learned how to read, understand, and export cost details, as well as how to match your company's organization with how you want to see and charge Azure costs. Now, it's time to establish a solid monitoring process for your needs. This is the last step of preparing your cost governance process before you enforce saving policies and techniques, which we'll explore in the next chapter.
In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:
- Learning about and using Azure budgets and alerts
- Adopting Azure Cost Management Power BI
- Defining and configuring automation scripts for cost control
- Thinking about an architecture for a custom cost management tool
By the end of this chapter, you will be able to successfully monitor and control costs through dashboards and alerts regularly.
