Fix quality of daily cost data visibility
On various days / weeks there are gaps in cost data for various resources. This tends to self-heal after up to 1 week (incl. history correction). All custom control / alerting which looks on anomalies in cost trends fail due to this; we also loose opportunity to act quickly on unexpected cost raises due to changes, testing activity or unplanned activity on prod - it's critical to see this data at least with daily delay, ideally near real-time.
Examples of incidents: on Dec 8-9 we stopped getting cost data for any of our SQL DWs, SQL DBs or PostgreSQL DBs (118121025000373) - still today we don't see this data (but hundreds of other objects show it correctly). On Nov 13-14 we missed part of the costs of SQL DWs (118111525002548).

I think this item should be classified under "Cost Management", "not SQL Database", as cost reporting issues were appearing for more resource types.
