How to Track and Optimize Public Cloud Spend

In a recent Gartner report, analysts explored key challenges of managing public cloud spending on services like AWS, Azure and GCP, as well as key capabilities organizations should look for in cloud service expense management tools (such as Cloudability) to plan, track, reduce, optimize and monitor your organization’s cloud spend.

We recently released an e-book addressing key findings from this report and from Gartner studies on cloud spend management.

In this e-book, we explore these key challenges and reveal how a True CostTM Cloud Management Platform like Cloudability prepares enterprise cloud teams to continuously and scalably manage spend and optimize their clouds.

Common Challenges in Public Cloud Spend Management

The Gartner assessment identified six key challenges that organizations frequently encounter in the realm of public cloud spend management. They include:

  • Assigning budget accountability
  • Allocating costs
  • Preventing costs from exceeding budget
  • Leveraging provider discount models (like Reserved Instances)
  • Forecasting spend
  • Leveraging available tooling

A True Cost Cloud Management Platform helps solve each of these challenges and encourages the development of scalable, repeatable cloud policies and practices that help teams prevent these challenges from arising, or arising again.
