FinOps : control the costs of cloud strategy
The widely used enterprise cloud services often have complex pricing, with real costs exceeding estimates, and with difficult and prohibitive internal re-invoicing processes. Businesses today are seeking to take control and optimize the various costs of the cloud.
To reach their objective, Umanis advises them to implement FinOps in a global cloud transformation process for the whole company, thus going far beyond simple technical issues.
The challenges behind reducing cloud costs
Companies tend to buy cloud capacity in proportion to budgets by project, as needs arise in different business services. The result is the coexistence of various partitioned cloud services, provided by different players, poorly operated capacities and erratic costs.
FinOps allows them to take control of the costs of cloud services and their efficiency, with upstream control of use cases and actual consumption. All of this implies a new approach to the cloud to avoid user investment without real visibility.
For Umanis, Finops is not just a technical process.
We start by helping our clients plan the right price, proportionate to the cloud capacities they require for their real use cases.
We help them move from a capex logic to an opex logic, from the partitioning of various cloud costs to a required ROI within a defined budget.
Our goal: provide our customers with the tools they can use to manage their cloud services costs by themselves in a sustainable manner. In the end, their successful autonomy will be the proof of our consulting quality.
