Building a successful FinOps practice:
FinOps enables enterprises to drive financial accountability and maximize business value through an operational model where technology, finance and business all work together to unlock the full potential of the cloud.
That’s why it’s crucial to implement a FinOps Framework*. This can be achieved by cycling through three iterative phases: Inform, Optimize and Operate.
The Inform phase provides the visibility for allocation and for creating shared accountability by showing teams what they’re spending and why.
The Optimise phase empowers teams to identify and measure efficiency optimisations like rightsizing or improving reserved instances coverage. Improvement goals are also set in this phase.
The Operate phase defines processes which enable the financial, technological, and business goals to be achieved. In this phase automation is often used to allow defined processes to be performed in a reliable and consistent manner focusing on scaling operational efforts through continuous improvement.
Our FinOps service builds on the FinOps lifecycle and includes:
- Reservation management
- Ongoing optimisation
