Sirius MessageOps Launches Inscape Anomaly for Azure Cost Anomaly Detection

Tool utilizes machine learning algorithms to monitor Azure consumption patterns daily and deliver alerts on any anomalies

Boca Raton, FL – 06 April, 2021MessageOps, a leader and innovator in Microsoft 365 and Azure tools and services, has released Inscape Anomaly, an easy-to-use graphical Azure cost anomaly platform. With Inscape Anomaly, IT and purchasing departments can now receive alerts within 24 hours of a cost anomaly in their chosen Azure subscriptions.

Cost anomalies can be caused by various scenarios including development bugs, unexpected customer load, or malicious actors. MessageOps developed Inscape Anomaly in response to clients that have been surprised by unexpected spikes in their Azure invoice.

Microsoft’s Azure cost management and budgeting static tools allow clients to receive notifications when they reach their budget alert matrix. However, because the Azure budget alert is set up to notify them when they’ve hit a certain percentage of their overall budget, that could happen in just a few days when their budget was set up for 6 or 12 months. Inscape Anomaly takes it a step further by notifying clients daily of any cost anomalies taking place (down to the resource level)—making Inscape Anomaly a great complementary tool for companies that currently use Microsoft’s Azure cost management and budgeting resources.

“With the Inscape Anomaly graphical alerting platform, you no longer need to wait until the end of the month to identify anomalous spend in your Azure subscription,” commented Chris Pyle, president of the MessageOps division of Sirius Computer Solutions, Inc. “It helps identify potential causes of the anomaly by showing changes that happened in Azure when the anomaly was detected in the days leading up to it.”

Key features of Inscape Anomaly include:

  • Daily monitoring of Azure consumption patterns using machine learning algorithms
  • A simple and graphical dashboard to see what’s happening in Azure subscriptions
  • Easy setup of email alert notifications
  • Identification of new and deleted Azure resources, including who created or manages them
  • Granular tracking of Azure spend at the subscription, resource group and individual resource level (including tagging)
  • Non-intrusive, read cost-only access required
  • Seamless single sign-on with Microsoft Office 365

Inscape Anomaly is included free of charge for MessageOps clients with their current Azure subscription.
