SAN JOSE, Calif., Dec. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cloud Cruiser, a leading provider of cloud consumption analytics, today announced the release of new, enhanced budgeting capabilities for its Cloud Cruiser 16™ SaaS application which allows customers to optimize their cloud services consumption. The application is designed to provide rich reporting and analytics for hybrid cloud usage to eliminate waste, control spending, and drive business agility. With these enhanced budgeting capabilities, customers now have tremendous flexibility to better plan and predict future usage with accuracy across multiple dimensions. Budgeting by department or project team and by specific time frames is critical for cloud users today. Most importantly, the ability to share real-time information with multi-functional stakeholders across the business drives fast decisions and means customers consume cloud services with confidence.
Check out the video on new enhanced budgeting features which include :
- Budget Target Per Period: Cloud projects and application teams run on a variety of time frames and Cloud Cruiser's budgeting allows you to set budgets for recurring time frames such as monthly, quarterly, or annually in addition to specific time frames such as three weeks or four months, depending on the nature of the project being managed.
- Budget Target Per Team, Department, or Service Type: Easily adjust budget targets and thresholds filtered by department, geography or team and automatically visualize spend against budget over time, with the ability to adjust on the fly. Additionally, set budget targets by specific cloud provider such as AWS, Azure or Google and by service type such as Compute, Storage or Database.
- Sharing, Proactive Notification, and Access: Central finance team members can set budget targets for department owners, and individuals can create their own budgets, with permissions showing only the related spend. Email alerts drive accountability by proactively informing users when spend reaches a threshold or is projected to exceed the target.
"In the cloud, multiple teams within a business are incurring real cost for their usage and it's no longer central IT's responsibility to manage it," states Paul Zinn, Cloud Cruiser's Senior Director of Product Management. "Our customers need a highly flexible way to control their costs across a variety of cloud providers, services, and users and our latest release delivers on that."
Cloud Cruiser 16™ is available for trial today. Designed and priced for value, find more information at www.cloudcruiser.com/cloudcruiser16 , on Twitter at @CloudCruiserInc, or visit the company on LinkedIn.
