Can I allocate costs so only certain users can report on those costs?

Jump to solution

I have a use case where I need different lines of business to report on just the cloud costs that are associated with that line of business. Does Optima have a way to delineate costs in that way?

Optima does this through Billing Centers. Billing Centers provides a way for users to logically group costs, using either cloud accounts or tags as the mechanism to drive those costs into the appropriate groups. The purpose of creating these Billing Centers is strictly to partition users, allowing them all the features and functionality of Optima, but only within the confines of the costs they’re responsible for.

Optima has a concept of Hierarchical Billing Centers, where there can be child Billing Centers below each top level. Again, users can be invited to any or all Billing Centers, for the purpose of siloing those users to just the costs they’re responsible for.
