Cloud Financial Management (FinOps)

The challenge

The proactive management of public-cloud finances for organisations can be complex and difficult to deliver:

  • Complex technologies with consistent updates and variations of costing models
  • Convoluted reconciliation of cloud consumption across the organisation
  • Cost-reduction opportunities difficult to implement on wide scale
  • Future-consumption forecasting is challenging due to dynamic nature of cloud
