Consumption

Visibility & control of your cloud & software consumption

Many organizations are failing to keep the cost of their cloud and software services within originally defined forecasts and budgets. We are typically finding that clients are significantly overspending particularly across subscription-based platforms. Not surprising then that CIOs now see OPEX based expenditure as one of the key challenges now they face.
