Cloud Economics – It’s Culture Driven By Theo Reddy – AWS Business Unit Manager


Have you made significant investments in cloud but have not yet realized the returns? Perhaps you feel a little helpless due to the inconsistent nature of “consumptive” based billing? Maybe all you are looking for are the benefits of cloud financial models but with the comfort of predictability and accurate forecasting?

At BlueSky, we’ve created a specific competency to target these exact concerns. And it’s not your typical competency. By harnessing strong multi-cloud technical resources, especially AWS, and the sharp, analytical thinkers of our finance division, we’ve created a cross-functional team with the aim of helping you maximize your investments in cloud.

You see, we believe a mature cloud financial management discipline is a cultural practice. Everyone takes ownership of their cloud usage because everyone has a part to play in cloud adoption.          

We enable organisations to get maximum business value by engaging and helping different functions, e.g. finance, engineering, technology, and business teams to collaborate better on data-driven spending decisions. Organizations that have leveraged our “Cloud Economics” service have seen increased levels of transparency with regards to usage information aligned to spend and most importantly mapped back to business value realization.

How do we do it?

The BlueSky AWS Cloud Economics service was designed to help a customer regardless of where you are on your cloud journey.

If you are early in your cloud journey, we offer you the best cloud fit solutions for your business ambitions by leveraging vendor validated design patterns. This allows you to make use of the right architecture for the business outcomes you desire at the right price point. Again, it’s about instilling a cloud culture across all departments. Our analytical finance thinkers work closely with your departments to ensure the business models are aligned for cloud.

Perhaps you’ve migrated some data or workloads to the cloud. Now what? Let’s start looking at what data, workloads or services you will need. From there, we think about what the opportunities look like. So, it’s not good enough to just say we’ve now moved SQL Server to AWS or we’ve moved Oracle to AWS. We start questioning if we can we get similar or better database services at a fraction of the cost or perhaps reducing the resource allocations to better suit your usage patterns.

Maybe this is you?

You’ve done some lift and shift migrations of entire virtual machines from on-premise to cloud.

We can help you modernize those applications “on-the-fly” by leveraging world class conversions tools and platforms.

So, regardless of where you are on your cloud journey, we can help.  The benefits are multi-fold, from quicker time-to-market, to achieving tighter financial controls and accurate forecasting.
