Enterprises can gain better visibility of their spiraling cloud costs

Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase issued a dire warning recently. “I said there’s storm clouds but I’m going to change it. It’s a hurricane. You better brace yourself. We’re going to be very conservative with our balance sheet.” Many economists dismissed the warning. Most now are believers.

What does this mean for technology investments in 2023?

Gartner forecasts worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services will increase by 20.7% to total $591.8 billion in 2023. Despite this growth forecast and investments to date, many organizations are still looking to achieve true return on investment by ensuring that cloud is fully cost optimized.

In this 15-min session we explore how enterprises can identify key opportunities to improve both performance and utilization, and in turn, cost. Using real case studies and calling on experience and results from previous client projects, we cover:

  1. How to achieve public cloud cost savings in the region of *30 to 60% – *numbers taken from real projects at NTT DATA/Densify clients
  2. How to deliver actual change which maximizes cost savings, improves application performance and reduces risk through a combination of powerful analytics, automation, and comprehensive services
  3. How to get started on true cloud optimization leveraging a proven framework and toolset
