"The cloud has helped businesses improve costs in customer acquisition and customer service, reach new markets, push out new products, and minimise procurement and supply chain costs. However, without cost optimisation, they could be overspending by more than 70 percent." - Gartner
The purpose of this session is to review the topic of public cloud cost optimisation. As businesses grow and scale in the cloud, they quickly realise that controlling costs in the cloud requires new skills, methods, and processes. In the face of COVID 19, IT executives are challenged to provide IT elasticity as well as lowering overall costs. While these objectives seem incompatible, we'll discuss how this can be achieved.
IT leaders are being challenged to optimise costs across the board whilst still growing their businesses and gaining competitive advantages through agility and innovation. As a result they are under pressure to do more with less, and often they are leveraging the performance benefits of the cloud to create meaningful differentiators and drive innovation.
During the event in an open and collaborative setting we will discuss the below points with like-minded individuals.
