GETTING TO CLOUD RIGHT

What got you here won’t get you to full Cloud ROI

FinOps as a discipline has done much to advance and programmatize cloud financial management. However, if you’ve been using 1st-generation or DIY FinOps tooling, you’ve probably found it to be incomplete, over-priced, and unreliable.

Top analysts are now saying that it’s time for FinOps 2.0 – what many are calling Augmented FinOps – to further help ensure that each dollar spent on cloud delivers maximum ROI.

Augmented FinOps is FinOps 2.0 from “Emerging Tech: Data Management Product Leaders Must Implement Augmented FinOps in Their Cloud Solutions” By Robin Schumacher, Adam Ronthal

Why you should care?

Regardless of your role, Augmented FinOps solves what previous FinOps tooling couldn’t and elevates cloud financial management from tactical policing to strategic necessity.
Senior IT/Cloud Leader

You want to know your cloud investments are under control, continuously optimized, and rigorously maximized. You want to automate and orchestrate wherever possible, and you want to be a true partner to the other internal organizations to bring about change that positively impacts your business.

FinOps Lead

FinOps leaders want to be at the forefront of FinOps technology and best practices to improve operational control without stifling innovation. But if you’re like them, you’re constantly frustrated by attribution and visibility gaps, inefficient controls, and costly cloud overruns.
