The Cloud made two major promises to the enterprise: the first was greater business agility, and the second was lower costs. Whilst few would argue that cloud hasn’t delivered on agility – the sheer speed at which things can be done - the jury is firmly out when it comes to cost control. Indeed many enterprises face distinct challenges.
Gone are the comfortable norms of traditional Cap-Ex based budgeting, replaced with a myriad of pricing models. An approach which can seem a viable business model at an enterprise level (thousands of servers) can see costs proliferate in the detail, as tens of thousands of configurable items are tuned by development teams - which may number in the hundreds: the technology scales scale, but it doesn’t necessarily follow that the pricing model does. Extricating working systems from bad cost models is painful, difficult and retrograde
So how do enterprises keep costs under control and maintain agility? How do you exit mistakes and ensure you minimise them? Join us at this live web seminar as our expert panel discusses best practise for cloud financial management, and how enterprises can more effectively forecast spending, control costs, and ensure optimal usage and return on investment whether their apps are in the cloud, the data centre or both.
