Webcast: Finding Cloud Cost Savings in Challenging Times

While no one knows how long the pandemic will last, we do know that all organisations will experience some economic impact. Quarantines and the shutdown of many companies and local businesses during this crisis have put a large financial strain on almost every organisation in every industry. As we move beyond the immediate need to ensure the health and safety or employees, organisations need to identify areas of cost savings that will allow them to persist in the near term without impacting their long term survival.

Cost savings is one of the key benefits promoted regarding the adoption of moving to the cloud. Now, more than ever, the realisation of these savings is critical. Analysis regarding governance and processes around budgeting, acquisition and implementation offer opportunities for real savings. During this webinar, we’ll discuss the real examples and techniques to manage cloud costs that will affect your bottom line without impacting business operations.

At the end of the webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Discuss the cost implications of cloud
  • Identify the 5 C’s of cloud cost savings
  • Evaluate various techniques and controls to manage cloud costs
  • Describe tools and technologies that can be utilised to identify areas of savings
