Reasons for wasted cloud services

  • Companies pay for more cloud than they need, just in case. However, cloud services are dynamic and scalable, allowing you to have just the right level.
  • Zombie resources. These are idle resources that are a byproduct of routine activities.
  • Employees that are unaware of their cloud spend and not equipped to drive cloud cost optimisation.

Preparing for cloud cost optimisation

  • The cloud mindset. Organisations should cultivate a culture of financial accountability to minimise waste. A cross-functional approach across planning, architecture and operations can help the company to scale cost-effectively.
  • The cloud toolset. Cloud services offer free access to tooling that enables visibility to cloud usage. You can also use advanced third-party tools and platforms.
  • The cloud skillset. Organisations must cultivate IT expertise in interpreting cloud cost and usage and implement necessary changes. They could also make use of managed service providers (MSPs).
