Here’s what we’ll discuss:

Cloud services are becoming the largest expense in the IT budget, and understanding the economics of cloud operations is no longer a nice-to-have. By examining the technical, operational and economic aspects of cloud services, companies can identify immediate cost savings and improve their organization’s long-term cloud maturity capabilities.

In this session, we’ll discuss how companies engaging in this cloud economics practice are seeing cloud spend drop 10% to 15% immediately, with additional benefits over the long term.

Some of these savings come from reducing over-provisioned and idle instances, replicated workloads and redundant storage resources. Beyond these savings it’s important to better understand how resources are used by each service, accurately forecast future costs, and align cloud usage and spend with strategic business value.

We’ll discuss how this exercise often results in building an in-house FinOps team and practice when companies realize the benefits of collaboration between engineering, finance, technology and business team.
