Here at SoftwareONE, we know that the FinOps operating model represents an ideal field of activities that enable us to support our customers in their cloud and technological transformation. Becoming certified by FinOps opens up a world of possibilities for us and our customers. With these new certifications in hand, SoftwareONE has the unique opportunity to combine our software procurement and lifecycle expertise with our strategic cloud technology topics. As result, we will be able to further guide our customers through all development stages of their individual cloud journeys.
SoftwareONE can be now more specifically referred to as a FinOps Certified Service Provider (FCSP). What are FCSPs, you may ask? They are described by FinOps as vetted service providers that have a deep understanding of how to help enterprises successfully adopt cloud financial management practices. Essentially, SoftwareONE will now be able to offer stronger support, consulting, training, and professional development for organizations beginning their cloud financial management journeys.
Plus, organizations must have at least three FinOps Certified Practitioners (FCOPs) to receive this certification, and several members of the SoftwareONE team are now FCOPs. This means we are ready to back your strategy with a wealth of FinOps knowledge and guidance.
Additionally, PyraCloud is now a FinOps Certified Platform (FCP). FCPs differ from FCSPs in that they are technology providers who offer cloud spend management and governance tools that are designed specifically to help organizations successfully adopt cloud financial management practices. PyraCloud provides unique capabilities to give organizations the transparency, predictability and governance they need for effective cloud financial management. This means we can better help our customers understand fully-loaded costs, enable real-time decision making, benchmark performance, optimize usage and rates, and align plans to their business needs. We are confident we will achieve the best results for our customers in managing both their cloud spend and technology adoption which, in turn, will enable business agility.
