About this talk

The benefits of the cloud are undeniable. Enterprises have moved to the cloud to accelerate innovation, agility, and growth. And organizations are enticed by the cloud’s on-demand consumption and pricing model that promotes cost savings. But the reality can be very different. Many organizations struggle to manage cloud costs. A solution is a cloud cost-management approach based on financial operations (FinOps) principles. Join our conversation between Alex Clemente from Harvard Business Review Analytic Services and Hitachi Vantara’s Krishnaprasath Hari who share findings from a customer survey on cloud adoption and challenges, as well as insights from cloud experts. Other topics discussed are: - Why FinOps is so important - The key benefits and business value of FinOps - FinOps best practices—with practical examples - What it takes to adopt FinOps—and which obstacles adopters need to overcome For organizations that successfully adopt FinOps, the results can extend beyond managing unwieldly cloud costs to enhancing the quality of cloud consumption while driving better business performance. FinOps is one solution to provide a more granular view of the costs of cloud usage and the business value these investments are generating. Watch this webinar to learn how.
