It would be desirable if multiple currencies could be handled by one Turbonomic
Currently, only one currency symbol can be set, so if AWS (USD) and Azure (Yen) are mixed, it will be confusing. Each time, we create a group just for AWS and refer to that dashboard, which is cumbersome.
Keep billing data statistics based on the Data Retention policy (currently, it can only display up to 30 days at maximum)

Customer wants to be informed which Azure Reserved Instances are not visible to the Turbo Azure Service Principal. This leads to improved cost information on savings.
See IBM Case TS011934194. In the discount inventory report available under Cloud, the column cost savings is wrongly indicated. Instead of calculating the savings by subtracting the PAYGO rate minus the 3 year RI reserved rate, the report is showi...
