Overspending on cloud services

Overspending on cloud services

Cloud spending can become a significant part of a company's IT budget, yet executives believe 30-40% of it is wasted. 

There are strategies that can result in immediate and tangible benefits.

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).

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
