Cloud FinOps Diagnostic: Understand, Plan and Improve Cloud & FinOps Maturity

Organizations around the world are accelerating their digital transformation in order to remain competitive. To achieve operational excellence and agility, businesses are driving more workloads to the cloud to drive 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 difficult.

Organizations face numerous cloud-based challenges with existing operating models, such as:

Constant Change Within the Cloud

Gaining and maintaining knowledge and experience on different cloud spend optimization techniques

Savings Realization

Identifying suitable candidates, implementing savings and measuring cost control/reduction KPI achievement

Pitfalls Prevention

Understanding the technical and operational implications for each optimization strategy

Cloud Spend Visibility

Knowing where the current cloud costs come from with confidence that we don't pay too much

Business Risk Mitigation
