Fact-Based Decisions On Cloud Spending 

Did you know that cloud-directed spending now drives more than 20% of IT budgets at organizations using some type of cloud services? With Gartner predicting that $1.3 trillion of IT spending will be influenced by the shift to the cloud, getting the biggest bang for your cloud buck is a board-level mandate.

As described on my previous blog, OpsRamp offers multi-cloud operational analytics with service availability, performance utilization and cost insights in a single place. You can access the cloud spend summary for AWS, Azure and Google services or view a detailed breakdown by cloud account, custom attributes, and other criteria.

You can also analyze historical spending patterns for different service categories, instance types, cloud regions, or purchase types. You’ll also be able to determine cloud spend by business unit and learn which team is spending beyond their budget with:

  • Cloud Cost Allocation insights that let you combine cost data from different clouds, accounts or services, allocate costs between shared accounts, and break down costs in a way that matches your organizational structure.
  • Cost Management insights help you track budget spend for your business units and correlate how much you are spending on cloud hosting costs for your digital services.
