Understanding the AWS Cloud Billing and Cross Charging Challenge
This E-Book is based on our experience in managing a large, multi- customer and global AWS managed service spend.
We have split the challenges into two groups:

Challenges from a Cloud Centre of Excellence or Service Provider perspective - The perspective of the central FinOps billing management team.
Understanding your challenges, and agreeing them across all participants is the start of resolution.
