With this new selective partner program, MSPs face fresh challenges in meeting the latest standards. This announcement brings uncertainty for MSPs like WWT CEO expressed last week, but we’re here to provide you with all the info in our FAQ to make savvy decisions about your FinOps platform. 

Exploring multiple FinOps tools, including Anodot, can offer your clients diverse insights, enhanced capabilities, and a tailored approach to their unique needs.
