Confidentiality Assured.

Enterprises are under mounting pressure to rein in cloud spend, but without a formal 90-day action plan the chances of success are slim. Gartner has found that organizations without a cloud cost management plan are at risk of overspending by 70% -- or even more.

In this report, Gartner explains how those responsible for ensuring the business value of cloud infrastructure can tackle this challenge by doing the following:

  • Sound an alarm if key warning signs are present, such as untraceable consumption, low resource utilization, or excessive on-demand purchasing.
  • Move quickly to collaborate with public cloud account owners across the company on immediate improvements, using the provided 90-day plan.
  • Build in long-term controls by using Gartner’s Framework for Public Cloud Cost Management to forecast, track, and manage spend.
