Optimize Your Azure Migration with FinOps Best Practices

Drive the most value from your cloud investment during migration so that you can realize your business goals, accelerate growth, drive sustainable innovation, or realize cost benefits of the cloud.

This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series Migration and Cost Optimization Practices

A key strategic objective of Cloud Migration is to yield significant operational cost savings, and ‘FinOps’ practices are key to realizing this benefit.

Financial Operations, commonly known as FinOps, is a set of practices that combines financial accountability with cloud technology’s agility.

Implementing FinOps best practices on the Microsoft Azure cloud can help organizations optimize costs, improve efficiency, and drive business growth. As Microsoft defines:

FinOps is a discipline that combines financial management principles with cloud engineering and operations to provide organizations with a better understanding of their cloud spending.”

These practices enable you to drive the most value from your cloud investment during migration so that you can realize your business goals, accelerate growth, drive sustainable innovation, or realize cost benefits of the cloud.

Leverage FinOps in Azure to optimize your cloud spend and drive accountability across your organization. With Microsoft Cost Management, gain complete visibility into your cloud costs, track spending by department or project, and forecast future expenses. Utilize management groups, subscriptions, and tags to organize costs and allocate resources efficiently, ensuring alignment with organizational priorities.

Make informed decisions with proactive cost reduction recommendations from Azure Advisor and architectural best practices like Azure Landing Zones. Operationalize FinOps practices with centralized management focus and continuous evaluation through the FinOps Review assessment.
