The FinOps Open Cost and Usage Specification (FOCUS) is a groundbreaking initiative to establish a common provider and service agnostic format for billing data that empowers organizations to better understand cost and usage patterns and optimize spending and performance across multiple cloud, software as a service (SaaS), and even on-premises service offerings. Microsoft Cost Management is introducing support for cost and usage data exports aligned to the FOCUS schema as part of a limited preview leading up to the next major FOCUS release.
