Is Software Asset Management the Tonic to your Cloud Headache?

Presented by

Antony Attfield, Rhys Williams and Mark Lillywhite

About this talk

According to Gartner’s latest research (cited in August 2018*) 20% of the IT budget is now being spent on cloud-based services. An upward trend that is being driven by more organisations moving workloads to the cloud and increasing adoption of SaaS applications. Many of these organisations, however, are experiencing significant cloud overspend due to a lack of visibility and effective monitoring across single and multiple cloud providers. And cloud sprawl and overspend is exacerbated by shadow IT with undetected or unauthorised purchases from cloud vendors. So how big is this problem of cloud overspend and how do you address it? Join experienced consultants from SoftwareONE, Antony Attfield and Rhys Williams and Mark Lillywhite from Snow to understand how to gain control reduce your cloud spend.
