Survey: Public Cloud Costs Go Unchecked
This report finds that nearly all companies are using the public cloud today, and that rapid growth will continue over the next year. Participants indicate that public cloud momentum is now being fueled by big data and analytics. The top challenge with the continuously growing public cloud resource is the ability to manage allocation usage and costs. However, this report reveals that nearly a third of the companies today are doing nothing to track, manage and allocate costs and consumption.
IT and Finance continue to have difficulty working together to ascertain and allocate public cloud usage, and IT continues to struggle with technologies that will gather and track public cloud usage information. IT needs a solution that can effectively manage and allocate public cloud use so they can have a fact-based conversation with the business that everyone can understand.
