Collaboration is the First Principle of Enterprise FinOps

FinOps practices are intended to ensure your organization gets the most value out of every dollar in the cloud through financial accountability for variable spend. Enterprises need to make constant tradeoffs between speed, cost, and quality and its impossible to do this without a cross-business collaborative process that includes Finance, Engineering, platform owners, and line-of-business stakeholders.

Implementing Successful FinOps Collaboration

At its core, FinOps is cultural. Silo-busting is absolutely critical in order for enterprises to successfully and holistically manage cloud finances.

Walking away from this training, you should be prepared to:

  1. Establish the organizational alignment around FinOps required for successfully enabling agile cloud microoptimizations that consider policy and the wellfare and goals of each business unit
  2. Include key stakeholders in an ongoing process that continuously optimizes your cloud estate for cost and performance while providing transparency and proper approvals
  3. Integrate cloud cost management practices with your existing ITSM, communication, automation, CI/CD and approval solutions and pipelines
