Azure Invoice Comparision

About the Feature

Azure invoices are financial documents that are generated by Microsoft Azure. These invoices provide a detailed breakdown of the charges incurred by a customer for their usage of Azure services during a specified billing period.

On the other hand, Hybr fetches the Azure Cost Export data which consists of cost and usage data for further analysis and reporting. It enables customers to extract detailed consumption and billing information from their Azure subscription.

Azure Invoice comparison feature enables us to compare the actual invoice from Azure and the cost export data populated and processed by Hybr, which gives the customer an accuracy and clarity on the cost allocated.
