DevOps.com reveals that 80% of organizations overshoot their IaaS budgets due to insufficient cloud cost optimization governance and misguided upfront spend commitments. As a result, cloud cost optimization must be a fundamental aspect of transformation efforts. CDW understands this challenge and offers tailored solutions and expertise to help organizations optimize their cloud costs, achieve maximum value from their investments, and drive successful transformations.


Navigating Cloud Cost Challenges for Efficiency and Savings

Effective cloud cost management is vital, given its impact on overall company spending. With a significant 24% year-over-year increase in public cloud spend, it now constitutes a substantial portion of expenditure. These rising costs are apparent to top executives, necessitating in-depth analysis by CIOs and CIO finance teams. The challenges arise from the variability of cloud spending, especially for finance teams unaccustomed to managing IT spending in the cloud, further compounded by developers launching services without cost considerations. Additionally, early-stage cloud adopters often face cost inefficiencies from overprovisioning, idle instances, ineffective licensing, and unused pricing discounts. Maximizing cloud investment value requires proactive measures to address these challenges and cost optimization strategies.
