Tooling provides an understanding of what an organisation has and where it is being used but Optimisation requires and understanding how this might be changed to realise benefits. Optimisation is not achieved by manually managing software. We can provide the technical and commercial expertise to produce a reconciled and optimised licence position for each vendor providing clear pathways and actions required for minimising the cost of your assets, and helping you find the right solutions to ensure long term success.
Building a cost and reporting model for your business which allows for clear, service-based cost reporting which brings the total cost of ownership into focus. This exposes cost drivers and levers, so IT and the business understand where they can impact costs. bedigital has the financial expertise to lead this work and partner agnostically with technical service and software providers to provide the tools to bring the benefit quickly.
Cloud cost management
Cloud provides great benefits but increases the cost risk to organisations from poor or reactive management of these assets. We drive business value by understanding, managing, and optimizing purchase and usage of public cloud. Understand costs and usage to avoid surprises and drive accountability. Manage consumption by asset, service and business units to make better decisions. Optimise resources by taking action on underutilized and idle instances and implementing processes and tools to pro-actively manage your costs. bedigital can provide tools to bring cloud cost management into your organisation and give you the insight you need to track and manage.
