Welcome to Skylines Academy, the #1 place to learn all about Cost Management in Azure! 


This course is for anyone getting started with Azure Cost Management. The audience includes Azure Administrators, IT and cloud management, or any group that needs to monitor and analyze Azure spending. 

 

Course Description: 

Moving to Azure? Concerned about keeping track of costs? Moving to the cloud is filled with stories of cost overages and surprise bills. In this course, we use native Azure tools to keep track of an organization’s Azure spend. We view real time and historical cost data, review cost forecasting, and set alerts on monthly charges to prevent unexpected overages. 

 

This course will use a lab tenant for the examples in the demonstrations. The audience will be able to: 

  • View and categorize spending by resource type, location, resource group and tags. 
  • Set a budget and budgets alerts on a subscription. 
  • Manage Azure Cost access with Role Based Access Control. 
  • Use Azure Migrate to predict costs associated with moving servers to Azure. 
  • Reduce Azure costs by implementing Azure Advisor recommendations. 


Using the Skylines Academy approach, lectures will educate you on the fundamental terms and principles of saving costs in Azure, and demos will enable you with a hands-on experience using scenarios to empower you in the real world.

Student Reviews for Skylines Academy: 


“The Skylines Academy Team clearly works hard to put together the best of the best in certification courses and content so people can not only pass exams, but really learn!” 

“It is so refreshing to see a team who not only knows their stuff, but can help people learn about Azure without breaking the bank.” 

“I was taking courses with [larger cloud education company name] but I found that their material really fell short, as opposed to Skylines Academy who has Authors and Content Creators who actually work in the industry and have delivered solutions to customers. You can tell when taking the courses and reading through material that they have actually had their hands on a keyboard and have been in our [the students’] shoes. They are the best cloud training company out there.”
