Managing Public Clouds

Level 100 Best Practices of Public Cloud Financial Management (CFM)

As cloud deployments grow and scale organizations need to align cloud spend to business initiatives and ensure costs don’t spiral out of control. The processes for accomplishing these tasks in an on-premises world don’t translate well to the public cloud, where procurement, financial, operational, and strategic models are very different. As a result, leading organizations are adopting a new approach called Cloud Financial Management. This session will describe best practices for cloud financial management to effectively manage costs and govern proper cloud usage.
