With mass migrations to the cloud causing your drive for innovation and revenue to collide with the need to rein in spiraling spend, the importance of effective cost optimization is greater than ever.

Enter Cloud FinOps – the practice of managing and optimizing the financial aspects of your company’s use of cloud computing services, including Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS).

Central to the premise of FinOps are collaboration, financial ownership, and accountability. When technology and finance teams work together to understand what’re driving costs, where areas of overspending lurk, and where accountability lies, they can take steps to optimize their usage of cloud services and realize the business value of the cloud.

The first step in your FinOps journey is to gain accurate visibility into your cloud costs and usage. Cloud providers’ native cost management tools are a good start, but these alone are just the beginning. To develop an effective strategy for managing and optimizing cloud costs and usage, consider engaging a trusted and experienced FinOps partner.
