12:25 pm - 1:00 pm Cloud Cost Modeling & Computing: How to Accurately Calculate & Effectively Manage the Real Cost of the Cloud

One of the main benefits of using cloud technology is the ability to scale your usage up and down and pay for only what you use thereby significantly reducing cost of IT service delivery. However, though the cloud model lends itself very well to true usage-based metrics and reporting, computing cost and chargeback models to support this reporting and billing structure can be difficult.
In this session, hear:
  • Proven strategies to predict the costs of business-process redesign, IT management capabilities, systems integration, infrastructure and other IT configurations involved in the transitioning to the Cloud
  • Why you cannot overlook the “human” cost of cloud
  • Solutions to limit ongoing costs
