“My public cloud spend is far greater than we expected. “ We hear this daily in every conversation regarding the data-centre, private and public cloud. Let’s focus on the public cloud spend in AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. What to do about it?
Whether you are an organization which is on a cloud journey, or are a value-add partner helping to shape or create the cloud strategy, there are always options on the table. Let’s talk about a few of these and how they may work. Potential 2 approaches:
Evaluate the environment with software, or
Evaluate the environment with people, process, and software - aka consulting
Let’s assume that the software is well written and that the people involved and processes they follow are of good quality. Software alone should provide a relatively fast turnaround, and if it has reporting functionality, one should expect to kick out a report in a few hours or a few days depending on what’s being collected. (point in time snapshot vs performance or resourcing over time)
Add people and process to the above 3 equations, and you have consulting – which can be very customized, pivot on the fly, and give the human touch. All positives, right? Though this will take a longer time frame to get a report, the quality should be considerably higher. In today’s fast-moving IT and business landscape, we don’t have time to wait for results. Stop the bleeding now, do the cosmetic surgery later if needed.
