Cloud Cost Optimization Accelerator: 4 Week Assessment

Perficient Inc

This 4-week assessment is a consultative engagement designed to help you maximize your Microsoft Azure investment.

The acceleration of cloud adoption over the last decade has transformed IT from a cost center to an enabler of digital business, creating new business models and revenue streams.

However, this period of acceleration has resulted in a lack of governance and cost accountability. With economic headwinds and uncertain times looming – organizations are getting serious about financial responsibility, resource visibility and cost management accountability.

During this 4-week engagement, we evaluate and analyze your current Microsoft Azure spend to recommend optimizations and remediations for your Microsoft Azure environment. We will construct automated tools for scanning, cost reporting, and optimization inspection, and help you establish a baseline for collaboration across engineering, finance, technology and business teams - to further maximize your Microsoft Azure investment.
