Solving the #1 Cloud Financial Management Challenge

FinOps/Cloud & Containers Financial Management Training

FinOps Foundation & Densify

Getting engineers to make optimization changes is the top challenge faced by FinOps practitioners, as revealed by a landmark FinOps Foundation report—the result of an industry survey that investigated the state of cloud financial management.

FinOps success requires a holistic approach to procuring cloud capacity and driving consumption of the appropriate instance-level resources. In this recorded training, experts from the FinOps Foundation and Densify detail findings from the report and train viewers on three steps enterprises are taking to overcome the most significant FinOps challenge:

  1. Codify policies that enable agreement on what constitutes cloud and container waste
  2. Derive trustworthy answers from precise analytics and deliver transparency on what is driving recommended optimizations
  3. Integrate enterprise-ready change management and tracking
