Managing cloud spend to keep within budget is an IT priority. However, doing so remains a challenge. In most cases, organisations are spending significantly 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.
Are you struggling with:
Data#3’s Cloud Optimiser solution is a managed service that helps you take control of the complexities of the cloud.
This all-in-one managed service helps you gain a deeper understanding of your existing cloud services, provides visibility on consumption and prevents unnecessary expenditure through usage and billing trends, as well as providing security and cloud health reporting.

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 over-provisioning 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.

Azure, AWS, GCP, VMWare

Tailored reporting and guidance
