Aspera Session: Don’t Leave Money on the Table: Why Unmanaged Cloud is an Expensive Mistake

By Robbie Plourde, SVP - Global Sales Engineering

Earlier this year, it was announced that the ride-sharing company Lyft will pay at least $300 million for AWS cloud services through 2021. This giant figure reveals an unacknowledged truth about cloud computing: it’s not an inexpensive licensing option.

In this session, we’ll cover best practice optimization processes to monitor and control your organization’s cloud costs. Using real-life examples from SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS vendors you’ll learn to manage specific cloud challenges including how to:

  • Track your actual usage needs and maximize existing licenses
  • Build SAM processes to ensure a cost management focus
  • Predict and reduce future cloud spend across complex environments
  • Negotiate stronger contracts and purchase the right subscriptions for your company
  • Secure hybrid compliance and manage new licensing rules for BYOL in cloud instances
  • Manage top vendors such as Azure, O365, AWS, Concur, Alibaba, Google, Oracle, IBM, and Salesforce
