Economize your Cloud Success

Cloud Consumption Expense Management

Cloud services are being adopted increasingly by enterprises today driven by a growing enterprise-wide need to manage the IT lifecycle across software, platform, and infrastructure categories. In recent years, IT has increasingly become both usage- and service-based, and as a result, a variety of complex cloud service pricing models have emerged. Similarly, with this wide-spread adoption the expense in this category is also skyrocketing along with the difficulties of administering an effective spend management plan to protect the bottom line.

This growing expense is something that requires immediate attention on behalf of Enterprises so that they can have a hold of their cost and do not get to a point where cloud seems to be a costly choice which it really is not. At Locuz we understand these problems and therefore our approach is always to partner with our customers and take a programmatic approach towards Expense Management. We try and ensure that your business can gain from tactical benefits of cloud migration yet keeping an eye on managing your cloud expenses.

Our Cloud Optimization expertise can help you maximize your Cloud Efficiency

Cloud Optimization

Cloud optimization is one of the key aspects that organizations today want to focus on as cloud services come to form an increasingly large component of their overall IT infrastructure cost. It’s no longer enough to simply evaluate and deploy a collection of cloud services – now, businesses need to closely monitor these resources to ensure maximum productivity, as well as security and compliance. Efficiency is one of the greatest advantages that cloud solutions have to offer today. Because as your infrastructure grows so does your cloud costs, its complexity, and chances of it running into inefficiencies.

Having the best data-driven insights at hand helps you and your team build a leaner infrastructure, simplifying cloud management in return for your business.

Cloud Service Catalog - Custom Cloud Services to serve your needs

Service Catalog

Cloud services catalogs are a centralized resource to both discover and leverage private or public cloud services. To have a robust Cloud Service Catalog we have ensured that we take a 360-degree view of what are the services that can help you leverage the cloud to its full potential. Our Cloud Service Catalog allows you to discover and access cloud services; such as storage, compute, and business services, which can be self- or auto-provisioned with ease and on demand.

Therefore, every single customer engagement of ours has custom Service Catalog that entails all the core tenets of the environment. It is done through a methodology which over the years has matured; thereby offering distinct advantage to our customers in accelerating efforts and simplifying practices in the overall Cloud Architecture. Our methodology for Cloud Service Catalog includes – Capturing requirements like service assets, Analysing them (for business case, capabilities, security, governance, use cases, limitations etc), Template creation for cloud services, workflows and self-service portal, feedback incorporation and with multiple iterations moving to finalization.
