Cloud Cost Management & Optimization

Optimize cloud resources for cost, speed, and quality

A Revolution in Infrastructure Procurement

Public cloud has completely revolutionized how organizations procure IT infrastructure. It is now possible to provision servers and software applications in moments instead of months, with decisions made by decentralized teams of engineers and no longer gated by finance.

The shift to this dynamic spending model demands new governance processes, or organizations risk unnecessary waste and poor ROI. This necessitates breaking apart consolidated cloud bills of millions or billions of lines, assigning costs back to the business groups responsible, and surfacing opportunities for cost savings.


Ongoing Savings
"Increased cloud usage, along with an immediate ROI, makes the adoption of CCMO tools an easy and compelling choice."
– Forrester

Common Cloud Bill Challenges:

  • Monthly cloud bills routinely run into the hundreds of millions of lines
  • Most lines represent the cost of one resource for an hour or day
  • Each cloud vendor has a completely different format and underlying concepts
  • Billing exports are usually updated multiple times per day

Cloud Cost Management & Optimization Solves the Problem of...

Automatically categorize all cloud costs with near-real-time ingestion of billing exports from AWS, Azure, and GCP. Allocate costs back to the groups responsible with full chargeback through reports made available to all stakeholders.

Enable teams to engage with their allocated spend through single-pane-of-glass visibility and resource-level analytics across the major cloud providers. Proactively notify individuals of significant cost events and budget compliance.

Automatically push rightsizing recommendations for VMs, DBs, and Volumes directly to engineers. Improve rates by giving FinOps experts visibility into commitment coverage and additional purchase opportunities.
