How Synyega’s approach solved Azure creep and consolidated the licensing estate to save costs

Review of Microsoft Azure usage

Challenge

Synyega were asked to review this client’s Microsoft budget as their Azure spend had risen to £70K which was unsustainable long term. The situation was further complicated by the client’s data not being up to date as they had just moved systems, which meant no accurate picture of usage and need across the estate. The Review & Optmise service was used to establish a true picture of the licensing estate. This led to it being discovered that the system integrators had not yet established reporting requirements for the new architecture, which meant a full independent review was then essential.

Solution

Once the full licensing position for Microsoft was established, the data was then modelled to provide the client with full cost and usage scenarios for their expected expansion, which was then used to guide any planned spend and recommendations and which products and licenses to aim for in future.
