Episode: Cloud uneconomic – Are you really getting value from your move to cloud?

Length: 43 min



According to the RightScale research report ‘State of the Cloud’, spending on cloud is increasing for ~59% of organizations, while 70% of organizations fail to get the expected value.

Clearly, many cloud adopters are struggling with their Cloud Economics. This is not simply a fancy term for cost reduction. It’s everything related to the financial aspects of cloud. Not just what you’re spending today on your cloud services but also about setting up a framework for cloud cost management. It is even more critical within the context of Digital Transformation and Climate change.

This episode will ask:

  • How do you avoid wasting money, resources, and energy due to a lack of control over your cloud consumption – and what’s causing this failure?
  • Why simply shifting your legacy apps to the cloud won’t deliver the value you’re looking for – and could impact your environmental stance with over usage?
  • How do you get your software developers, administrators, and testers to understand the costs involved in the development of new functionality?
  • What is the role of automation in the deployment of applications into production?
