Cloud Cost Intelligence

Optimize Procurement & Enable Finance Visibility

Refine How You Buy Cloud & Report Your Successes

Sound cloud financial management is achieved by obtained optimizing cloud and container resources, which also maximizes app availability and performance. But, holistic FinOps strategies require alignment with and strategic buy-in from Finance.

After building a solid, optimized foundation, the next step for businesses is addressing better procurement of capacity through Savings Plans and instance reservations—part of a grouping of capabilities that Densify calls Cloud Cost Intelligence (CCI).

CCI enables Finance teams to visualize and understand your FinOps health and progress through their preferred business intelligence (BI) platforms with Densify capabilities that enable line-of-business chargebacks and detect cost anomalies with outlier analysis.
