Understanding the true cost of cloud through expert and tools-based analysis

A key reason cited by IT executives for moving to cloud is cost efficiencies. Cloud certainly has become ubiquitously linked to “cost saving”, but for some cloud adopters the reality can be very different than the theory. This is where Keytree can help.

Understanding current costs, forecasting the equivalent cloud deployment and managing and optimising the ongoing costs of cloud need to be a fundamental part of any company’s cloud strategy. Without this, the benefits of true pay per use cloud computing can be difficult to achieve. The incredible advances in cloud technologies, underpinned by the huge investments by the hyperscalers, has seen an exponential growth in cloud deployments.
