I’m very happy to announce the launch of my new course “Master Cloud Financial Management (FinOps)” on Udemy.
FinOps is shorthand for Cloud Financial Management. It is the practice of bringing financial accountability to the variable spend model of cloud, enabling distributed teams to make business trade-offs between speed, cost, and quality.
Thanks to the cloud, speed delivery fuels innovation and opens the door to a degree of infrastructure control previously impossible. However, it also a speed that is simply too fast for traditional IT financial operating models. After all, it’s hard to be proactive if you only look at your cloud spend at the end of the month when you get your cloud bill.
Therefore, the most efficient way in the world for teams to manage their cloud costs is to use Cloud Financial Management and Operations. Using FinOps Cross-functional teams work together to enable faster delivery, while at the same time gaining more financial and operational control.
If it might seem that FinOps is about saving costs but FinOps is really about creating value for your company. Cloud spend can drive more revenue, signal customer base growth, increase release velocity, or even help reducing on premise infrastructure. FinOps is all about removing blockers and empowering engineering teams to deliver more and faster.
Individuals at every level and in every area of an organization can have a different role to play in the FinOps practice. This includes:
- FinOps Analyst
