Watch how to implement a serverless architecture in Azure from Azure SQL Database serverless to Azure container instances. Join solution provider Icertis and watch how they use serverless technology from Azure SQL Database serverless to give their customers a customizable, turnkey and scalable contract intelligence platform.

The Icertis Contract Intelligence (or ICI platform) is used by the world's most iconic brands and turns contracts from static documents into strategic advantage by structuring and connecting the critical contract information that defines how an organization runs. The ICI platform is hosted entirely in Azure, but now Icertis has gone to the next step of optimization by incorporating serverless technologies. Monish Darda, Chief Technology Officer for Icertis, joins host Jeremy Chapman to share the architecture of the Icertis platform using Azure SQL Database serverless.

Ideal for databases with intermittent usage patterns or extended periods of inactivity.

Just-in-time compute only runs as queries come in.

Set min-max ranges and define when you want the service to pause.

Billing is per second vs per hour using provision compute, reducing costs.

Azure Resource Manager template options:

Fully automated and you can integrate it with your current systems of record.

Start with single server architecture, then move to enterprise architecture as needed.

Add optional services, AI integration, or other SaaS apps.

Take a deep dive on Azure Cost Management and Billing, a free tool that helps you set budget accountability and find optimizations to keep Cloud cost down. Whether you are managing your Cloud expenditure, want to ensure a specific workload or project stays within budget, or want to identify optimizations, Azure Cost Management can help. And Cost Management comes free with your Azure subscription, so there’s no excuse not to use it.

Antonio Ortoll, Product Manager for Microsoft Azure, joins Jeremy Chapman to help you understand the costs of everything running in your environment and show you how Azure Cost Management and Billing solves for:

Visibility into the workloads and related resources that are driving spend. See spending patterns or even detect specific anomalies in spend.

The ability to track spend against budget so you can drive accountability and charge costs back to individual teams or departments.

Identify optimizations that can help you to save money through dynamic recommendations available through Azure Advisor, which is integrated with Azure Cost Management.
