Invitation to a Seminar on the Business of Cloud

Cloud services are rapidly being deployed by organisations seeking the benefits of a dynamically scalable and easily consumed infrastructure and platform environment. However, in the rush to the cloud, many have ignored the business and financial implications. This has led to much disappointment due to guesstimate business cases, incorrect decisions on which workloads to move, and cost blowouts as a result of to cloud sprawl and lack of accountability for its consumption.

The remedy? A fact-based decision on what to move to the cloud. This must start with an understanding of your current IT service delivery costs. Not only the aggregate costs, or costs of server hardware – but the true cost of every component necessary to deliver an IT service. Most organisations have struggled to fully quantity these costs – and thus were never able to draw an accurate comparison for cloud services. But there is a better way: Apptio, the business management system for hybrid IT.

With Apptio, IT leaders make better cloud adoption and migration decisions. IT is equipped to compare TCO across hybrid services, plan for the financial impact of business demand, and optimise cloud services spend. Only Apptio can provide a view across on-premises, private and public cloud services whether it’s infrastructure (AWS, Azure, and others) or SaaS vendors (Salesforce, Office 365, and others). Hundreds of customers, including more than a third of the Fortune 100, choose Apptio to provide the information to make faster, better IT business decisions.

Come to this lunch seminar to see what accurate cloud IT cost accounting can look like – and what quantifiable benefits it can deliver to your cloud transformation.
