It’s important to track costs of public cloud because the consumption of public cloud is so easy. You just a push button to stand up new infrastructure and new services. It’s so easy to forget that they’re running. When you’re billed hourly, it doesn’t take you long to run up a pretty large bill. If you don’t have controls in place, there will be problems down the road. With Apptio, consumption is mapped back to business units and their products so we can drive accountability.
