An Intellyx Brain Candy Brief
Kumoco offers a multi-cloud management solution suited to companies looking to migrate bespoke instances of enterprise platforms like ServiceNow to the cloud atop AWS and Azure.
A multi-cloud management tool is not unique, but the UK-based service provider claims their Kumoco Cloud Manager solution can eliminate up to 80-90% of the service and labor costs of migrating and maintaining such hosted platforms, or ‘cloud estates’ as they call them, by tracking and optimizing cloud usage and spend, while continually monitoring compliance to required standards such as ISO2700, CIS PCI and US FedRAMP.
They even went so far as to put a clippable-looking coupon for ‘80% off cloud’ in our first briefing request, which gave me a chuckle.
The potential addressable savings are not a joke though, given the expansive compute and storage footprint, and the high number of connection requests an enterprise platform must withstand in short order.
A strategy for optimizing associated cloud usage costs and dealing with regulatory/compliance risks should be taken into account prior to any such cloud migration.
