Simplify financial reporting with cost allocation, now in preview

Managing cloud costs can be challenging, especially if your organization needs to break down costs for an internal chargeback. You might have separate business units, or you might need to facilitate external billing for distinct customer solutions. This becomes even more difficult when you employ shared services to reduce costs, since there may not be a clear way to break those shared services down by business unit or customer. This is where the Azure Cost Management + Billing cost allocation preview for Enterprise Agreement (EA) and Microsoft Customer Agreement (MCA) accounts comes in.

Cost allocation is the process of breaking down and distributing shared costs. A couple examples of this are networking infrastructure, shared by multiple virtual machines, or shared databases or storage accounts, used by different teams or customers. If you're sharing services across business units or customers, take a look at how cost allocation can help you drive more accountability and streamline cost reporting within your organization.
