Bet you’re throwing your money (away) into the Cloud?

Don't get us wrong. We love the Cloud. But we also love our customers (and of course anyone who wants to become one). That's why we’ve searched for the best solution to make the flexible and confusing cost structure of the Cloud more visible and predictive for all stakeholders. And what did we find?

FinOps - the most efficient cost optimization for the Cloud

There are many reasons for high Cloud costs. They include lack of governance, lack of transparency and complex billing models. That’s great of course because it also means that there are many optimization possibilities. FinOps is a collaborative, cross-functional cost and resource optimization approach that is implemented continuously into the DevOps lifecycle. Or in short: an approach that finally successfully combines IT and finance.

FinOps is a new approach, and in Germany there are very few Certified FinOps Service Providers.To be honest there’s actually only us. But many of the world's largest Cloud users such as Netflix, Spotify, Nike, Atlassian, Nationwide and HERE are already working with it. We will show you in our webinar how you can successfully apply this new approach for your own company to use.

Agenda


  • an introduction to the topic of Cloud costs – the important differences to on-premise IT

  • an introduction to FinOps - a new operating model for the Cloud
