FOCUS Version 1.0 defines 43 columns that should be used in cloud billing files generated by cloud service providers. Each column has a unique name, ID, description, and the requirements for that column. Each column provides either qualitative data (Dimensions) or quantitative data (Metrics).

Dimensions are commonly used to categorize, filter, and reveal details in your data when combined with metrics. Metrics are commonly used for aggregations (sum, multiplication, averaging etc.) and statistical operations within the dataset.
