Why Do Cloud Costs Get Out of Control?
The advent of the cloud and the solutions it offers has caused a scramble.
Organizations have moved quickly to take advantage of the benefits offered by shifting IT workloads to a live cloud. With these benefits, however, has come an upward surge in cloud costs.
Tracking and managing the costs associated with the cloud has become one of the major concerns of CIOs and CFOs. They realize that the cost of cloud services is far exceeding set IT budgets.
Part of the problem is these organizations just don’t have the in-house resources. Private infrastructure helps to manage the real-time analysis of cloud use and expansion. This causes surges in costs that are both unpredictable and unmanageable.
More than half of organizations have moved their IT workloads onto a live cloud service. The fact remains that organizations need to move to the cloud to remain innovative and competitive. The innovations possible on the cloud have pushed enterprises from every sector to adopt this disruptive technology.
The question then not if but how.
