Nearly all companies have shifted at least some of their business operations to the cloud. And those already working in the cloud are expanding their footprint, often moving to hybrid and multiple clouds. This transition accelerated during the pandemic.
The increase in cloud operations has many business benefits: increased operational capacity, agility, scalability, security. However, there can be increased costs and new challenges in managing those costs—a need that has generated a new function for cloud cost management: financial operations (FinOps).
On September 8, in a live, interactive HBR-AS webinar, Chuck Foley, NetApp’s senior director of marketing for cloud-based solutions, joined HBR-AS’s Alex Clemente to discuss:
- Defining FinOps and its purpose and benefits
- How to drive greater business value with FinOps
- The mindset and cultural shift FinOps requires
- How to get started with FinOps
They shared insights, case studies, and best practices from organizations that have adopted FinOps and shared their thoughts on the future of FinOps.
