AX7 – Cloud estimation sheet

When working with new clients, I just love to show Life Cycle Services, and all the new tools and gadgets now available to us. Prices on licenses and Azure services are beginning to come into light, but there is one “unknown” factor. How much would it cost to in time to setup and implement all the tools and services?

  3. The ASCII code 42 represents the character ‘*’, which is the asterisk, which is a regular expression meta character to denote ‘zero or more’ of anything, like life, universe and everything.✌️
