FinOps Diagnostic: Understand, Plan and Improve Cloud & FinOps Maturity
Digital transformation continues to drive the rate at which organizations are migrating workloads to the cloud, in order to achieve business advantage through faster innovation and speed to market. While this offers better employee experience and faster routes to market, the rapid shift can make controlling cloud spend and ensuring accountability of cloud costs across the business more far more challenging.
