Cloud Bills: A Billion-dollar Puzzle

Transitioning to the cloud, be it private, public, hybrid or multi-cloud, without a planned strategy often exposes enterprises to higher spending. To realize greater benefits and avoid vexatious budget surprises, CFOs and CDOs must view clouds from the perspective of cost vs long-term value.

While choosing a suitable pricing model or gaining cost transparency are some of the standard cloud cost management measures, having robust financial governance is the need of the hour to connect the cost of cloud workloads to business value, higher ROI, and zero impact performance. This gap is driving the rise of a new service model—FinOps as a Service.

One in two business leaders cite difficulties in measuring cloud value as a barrier to achieving ROI.

Rightsizing workloads can save up to 70% of cloud costs.

By 2026, augmented financial operations (FinOps) is expected to improve cloud cost optimization and reduce efforts that go into budget planning by up to 40%.

Can FinOps as a Service Solve the Puzzle?

FinOps connects the cost of workloads to its business value. It positions you to manage cost overruns caused by suboptimal workloads or misaligned pricing models.

~ Gartner

Financial Operations or FinOps as a Service is designed to simplify the complex process of cloud financial management by bringing together people, processes and technology. It helps businesses mitigate the financial risk of managing cloud finance by providing knowledge, tools, and strategies.
