Cloud Cost Optimization | The Soaring Cloud Cost and Inefficiency Landscape

The cloud offers agility and innovation, with promises of performance optimization, security, operational excellence, reliability and most importantly, cost optimization. The experience of most organisations is, however, a near perfect opposite. The reason for the bad experience is largely the large-scale inefficiencies in the Cloud customers’ workloads: poor practices, architecting and engineering.

Cost readily provides the lens to estimate the level of inefficiencies in the usage of the Cloud: Recent surveys (Gantner, 2023, Forbes 2023) indicate that 30% of cloud spend is wasted, a whopping $147 billion of waste. Those are wastes arising from over-provisioned resources to unused or underutilised instances. When bad application-level architecture is factored in, the waste is well over 70% by our estimates and from experience working with Cloud customers of all sizes and industries.

How much is your organization contributing to this waste? These statistics is for an urgent call to organisations to identify and eliminate wastes. The wastes are not only real, they are a huge threat to organisations’ competitive strength and continued survival. This is very apparent as most organisations are actively discussing the urgent need for cloud cost reduction with the CTOs.
