Data Visualization of Cloud Costs:

The days of simply adding rack-mounted servers in a data center as the default answer to IT challenges are over! The cloud has made it possible to provision servers and services for precise workloads while reducing operating costs and maintaining flexibility and agility.

While many companies are seeing tangible benefits from migrating workloads to the cloud, few are able to clearly define those financial and operations benefits on a system, project, or line-of-business basis.

This results in overpaying for cloud services by utilizing higher-cost on-demand services or over-provisioning your cloud infrastructure for the task at hand.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • Analyze your current cloud and on-prem IT spend to identify patterns and optimize resource usage and cost.
  • Approach forecasting cloud spend and total cost of ownership (TCO) to decide if cloud migration is worth it.
  • Resource mapping and tagging for your migration preparation.
  • Updating your budget to reflect your cloud transition and first few months in the cloud.
  • Characteristics of a successful migration plan, and what to keep in mind during execution.
  • Detect cloud resource usage, your spending patterns, and more about optimization strategies.
  • Monitor, optimize, and forecast your cloud expenses and how to set alerts when something changes.
  • Track your monthly spend to ensure you stay on budget and how you can forecast your cloud expenses for the future.
