In today’s volatile and uncertain economic climate business leaders are supporting IT organisations in their move to public cloud platforms preferring to substitute CAPEX for OPEX and gain higher levels of organisational agility. But few such leaders have considered the cost, complexity and value of such migrations, both in terms of re-platforming applications and adapting to real-time consumption-based pricing models. New organisational ways of working, methodologies and tooling are required to manage and effectively control cloud costs and investments to achieve maximum value.

Accenture and IBM have developed sophisticated FinOps methods and tools to enable organisations to extract full value from cloud platforms. Such tools help to eliminate waste and optimise usage. During this evening we will discuss:

  • How to optimise your migration plans and associated sequencing
  • How to analyse and eliminate waste when using public cloud platforms to reduce spend
  • How to organise effective chargebacks to the businesses for cloud usage
  • How to develop new ways of working for procurement and financial control
  • How to address sustainability challenges across the IT estate

Accenture and IBM invite you to a FinOps dinner at One Moorgate Place on the 15 November at 6.30 PM to discuss effective vendor partnerships.  Sinead Glynn will introduce the session. Roger Camrass of CIONET will be your host, and as with all CIONET events, this meeting of minds will help empower you in your digital leadership role.
