Accelerate digital transformation with dynamic
optimization of your hybrid IT costs

Using cloud services – from IaaS to SaaS – creates huge new opportunities to transform the speed, efficiency and operating costs of a business. But the challenges of forecasting and controlling cloud costs can quickly become an unmanageable headache that delays – or even completely blocks – successful digital innovation.

The Problem

As businesses accelerate their pace of digitization the number and variety of cloud services they use rapidly increases, with both the business and IT keen to use new digital services to innovate more quickly.

But while business innovation relies on the rapid adoption of cloud solutions, the variety of cost models used by providers frequently undermines established management practices – making it ever more challenging to forecast budgets, track costs and ensure continuity of service. These problems frequently result in procurement issues that block cloud usage or trigger unsanctioned “shadow IT” spend that can quickly spiral out of control.

Without the ability to easily forecast and manage a 360 degree view of their cloud costs, therefore, organizations often find cloud adoption impractical – blocking innovation, slowing down business change and forcing the use of slow, high cost traditional products and services that put the organization’s digital future at risk.

The Solution

An integrated financial view of your hybrid IT portfolio

PICCO overcomes these problems by presenting cost data from multiple cloud services within easily customizable dashboards – providing a full 360 degree view for forecasting and managing your costs.

By using our out-of-the-box adapters for popular cloud services, people at all levels of your organization can quickly overcome uncertainty and create transparent, consolidated views of their total cloud costs. Our complex visualization and drill-down capabilities make it easy to forecast exposure and gain insight into real-time operational costs, while our automated cost allocation capabilities allow you to charge different teams based on their actual usage – creating a transparent culture that unlocks the financial barriers to digital innovation.
