Cloud Cost Governance

We explore how to monitor, manage, and optimize public cloud costs to add value to your business initiatives.

In the 2018 Softchoice Cloud Readiness report, 57% of IT leaders said they had exceeded their cloud budget while 44% said they struggled to hold lines of business accountable for cloud costs. The ease of deploying seemingly cost-effective cloud solutions is frequently undermined by the challenges of managing uncontained sprawl, leading to unexplained cost overruns.

Join Softchoice Hybrid IT Specialists for a discussion on:

  • The hidden costs of moving to the cloud
  • Managing the shift from CapEx to OpEx
  • Balancing budget, accountability, and optimization
  • Regaining control of cloud expenditures
  • Optimizing the consumption of compute resources

Learn how to plan and manage the costs associated with your public cloud investment. Our presenters will provide guidance on building an Azure cost model based on best practices. This includes using chargebacks to assign and track cloud usage to specific business units, and avoiding unexpected expenses by seeing what - and who - is driving consumption.

We will also discuss how Softchoice is providing clients with the visibility they need to align resource spend, and control their Azure costs.
