Maximizing Outcomes for IT Spend

Optimizing IT spend is top of mind for every CFO, CIO & CTO. The shift to cloud and other transformational initiatives are changing the way businesses view IT. Many associate the term “FinOps” with only the public cloud, but why? After all, most enterprises manage complex hybrids of cloud and data center-based services, hence thinking about FinOps for the entire IT Enterprise is essential.
