Control Cloud Costs

Operating in the cloud offers businesses the flexibility and scalability to increase rate of change and speed of delivery. But there's a risk that a lack of proper capacity management and software inefficiencies will cause costs to spiral out of control.

We'll help your business get the most of out the cloud, without costs unnecessarily eating into profits. Our efficient software optimisation and accurate forecasting delivers predictable cloud OPEX and a typical ROI of 25:1.

The Challenge

Operating in the cloud is enabling organisations to discover new levels of flexibility, cut their costs and rapidly enact change. Unfortunately, in their haste to deliver more frequent software changes into a live environment, IT departments are quickly turning up cloud capacity in a sub-optimal state.

As a result, organisations often end up with under-optimised and inefficient cloud platforms that cost more than necessary.

Today’s systems may not be efficient enough to make a migration cost-effective

Accurately sizing and managing enterprise cloud infrastructure is complex and time-consuming

Adoption of cloud can lead to loss of control over costs as a result of unpredictable OPEX

Sub-optimal cloud auto-scaling risks poor performance during peak periods

How We Help

Our Control Cloud Costs solution ensures your cloud infrastructure is capable of handling anything your customers throw at it – whilst keeping costs manageable.

Our proprietary methodology combined with our unique software allows us to optimise your infrastructure, software and processes to deliver maximum ROI – typically 25:1. All without any risk of negatively affecting performance, even at peak times.
