We discuss a variety of use cases, such as multi-tenant chargeback and billing, demand forecasting, profit management, technology trends, and what-if modeling, to get a better understanding of how enterprises and service providers are using IT Financial Management to optimize costs and drive greater business agility with the Microsoft cloud platform and Cloud Cruiser.
