There has never been a more critical point in time to start improving business processes to prevent unnecessary expenditure, than now.
Managing cloud spend to keep within budget should be a priority. However, doing so remains a challenge with many moving parts to stay on top of. In most cases, organisations are significantly spending more on their cloud environments than is necessary.
When looking at overall cloud expenditure, cost is not the only consideration you should be making – security, governance and regulatory compliance are all areas which require careful attention and management.
Without the ability to easily manage the complexities of your cloud environment, you may be struggling with:
While it may not be immediately obvious, the cost of status quo when it comes to managing your cloud environment can be significant. More often than not, organisations are generally overprovisioning cloud workloads without reason, resulting in wasted expenditure and resourcing.
Cloud visibility, or lack thereof, can be a real challenge for organisations.
Lack of both visibility and the time needed to identify issues can lead to an array of concerns, such as poor governance across multiple clouds, ballooning cloud spend, lack of ability to forecast spend accurately and increased security threats.
Within many organisations, cloud estates are far from secure or compliant.
The reality of fast-paced cloud adoption means that organisations engaged in multi-cloud adoption now have a greater threat surface than ever before. These same organisations also now face compliance configuration issues – which often go unaddressed for long periods of time.
