The Importance of Cloud Cost Optimization

  • Cloud cost optimization, security, and automation remain top concerns for stakeholders. 
  • By 2024, it’s predicted that 80% of companies will be unaware of their mistakes in their cloud adoption and will overspend by 20% to 50%.     
  • Cloud Cost Optimization reduces waste by providing you with details of your cloud investment so that you can control and manage performance, resources, speed of innovation, time-to-market, continuity, compliance, and costs. 
  • Drive accountability to stay on budget through real-time visibility and tracking of cloud costs. 

Challenges of Cloud Cost Optimization

Research shows that 80% of enterprises face challenges in cloud cost optimization, making it crucial to identify and understand what those challenges are to overcome and gain as much business value as possible from your cloud spend. Listed below are a few of the common challenges enterprises face:

  • Track/Evaluate – Inability to fully know, thoroughly track and evaluate cloud resources/scheduling, inaccurate budget forecasts, and spending.  
  • Over-Provisioning/Cost Complexity – Cloud resource/scheduling inaccuracies and waste. Complexities around billing/reporting cloud expenses.  
  • Conflicting Strategies – Conflicting cloud-savings strategies across team. 
  • Cloud Options – Less cloud optimization options that aren’t fit; more automation/autoscaling/tools.
