In the meantime, Stratascale, a subsidiary of SHI International, and Apptio’s collaboration brings rapid and continuous FinOps and GreenOps services to Fortune 1000 clients.

The first solution delivered by the two is the Stratascale FinOps Accelerator, an eight-week service built on Apptio Cloudability, which identifies and maps a short-term path to rapid, cloud savings for clients while laying the foundation for lasting change and optimization to a client’s cloud management practices.

The tech companies plan to roll out a sustainability GreenOps solution for multi-cloud consumption later this year.

Digital transformations force companies to open their budgets for cloud spending, but the accelerated shift to the cloud presents complex challenges for forecasting and managing costs. According to siliconAngle, analysts project 30 percent growth in public cloud infrastructure as a service (IaaS) spending this year.

To help use the cloud more efficiently, organizations are doubling down on FinOps to manage their cloud costs and take ownership of usage while following best practices.

The Stratascale FinOps Accelerator service helps clients address common cloud cost issues. The service extends over eight weeks and pairs Stratascale and Apptio FinOps experts with the FinOps Apptio Cloudability platform.

This results in more targeted insights and a faster path to identify cloud cost savings for clients.

The service also helps clients realize critical next steps to achieve those savings. The service includes ongoing executive reports and readouts of key findings, along with valuable best practices and targeted recommendations. It’s available for a flat-fee price, regardless of the size of the cloud or potential savings opportunities.
