Get Started: Billing and Invoicing in the Cloud

Managed Service Providers (MSPs), Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), and resellers often have a tough enough time generating invoices for their customers. Add to that the demands of a multi-cloud environment, with AWS, Azure, Google Cloud and more, and it becomes extremely challenging to allocate billing and invoicing.

The solution is automation and self-healing. CloudCheckr can automatically generate invoices and even help resellers profit by keeping discounts and credits allocated among clients, presenting list price, as well as custom charges and credits as desired.

Attendees will learn:
- How to turn billing and invoicing into a profit center
- Creative tag mapping strategies
- How to structure automation monthly, weekly, and daily

  • Building a Cloud Center of Excellence Using the AWS Well-Architected Framework Recorded: Nov 22 2018 28 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager
    The Public Cloud may be new to many enterprises, but it has been around long enough for Best Practices to have been established. As organizations migrate to the cloud, they do not have to start from scratch. They can leverage policies, or frameworks, established by cloud gurus and avoid repeating the mistakes of the early adopters. It is also important to get buy-in from different departments, so establishing a Cloud Center of Excellence is highly recommended.

    Attendees of this CloudCheckr webinar will learn what a Cloud Center of Excellence (CCoE) is and who should participate in one. They will also understand the pillars of the AWS Well-Architected Framework (WAF) and discover how CloudCheckr can help establish both a CCoE and WAF.
  • Achieve Your Mission of AWS Cost Optimization Recorded: Nov 13 2018 49 mins
    Todd Bernhard, Product Marketing Manager, Jonathan Lacour, Mission CTO, Mike Boudreau, Mission Director of Cloud Optimization
    Welcome to CloudCheckr Partner Webinars—where comprehensive cloud management meets a managed service provider to help you recognize the full potential of cloud infrastructure as a service.

Let Mission, a leading AWS managed services and consulting partner, help you achieve your mission and if that means saving on the cloud, this webinar has got you covered.
  • Clean Up Your Public Cloud → How to Avoid Cloud Sprawl Recorded: Nov 8 2018 34 mins
    Todd Bernhard, CloudCheckr Product Marketing Manager, Aaron Jeskey, Sr. Cloud Architect at Pinnacle
    Welcome to CloudCheckr Partner Webinars—where comprehensive cloud management meets a managed service provider to help you recognize the full potential of cloud infrastructure as a service.

    Modern enterprises are embracing the cloud primarily as a way to save money. But just as “Server Sprawl” was a problem with data centers, Cloud Sprawl can quickly become a concern. Without Cloud Cost Management, running a constantly growing and evolving set of public cloud services in a dynamic environment can easily get out of hand. In an ephemeral environment, resources can easily become under-utilized or wasted—negating any potential cost savings in the cloud.

    To further complicate the cost of the cloud, instances can be purchased at different rates, depending on how and when they are used. When left to individuals across different departments, teams, and business units, purchase decisions are less than optimal.

    Your organization needs to stay safe as you grow—which is why a comprehensive cloud platform should unify cost and security management. In this webinar featuring Pinnacle Technology Partners, attendees will learn about the risks involved with poor visibility and lack of control in AWS and Microsoft Azure, RI Purchasing and Right-sizing Recommendations, and why AWS and Azure perform better with Cloud Management tools.
