Creating FinOps Visibility

Driving cloud cost visibility and optimisation for a leader in the European aviation industry.

One of the world’s oldest operating airlines had recently taken the leap into the cloud. To take full
advantage of its digital transformation and growth ambitions, the airline needed visibility of cloud spend – and the ability to optimise it efficiently.

The Challenge

1. The lack of cost visibility in place for the existing AWS was a top leadership priority

2. Numerous manual AWS processes were putting unnecessary pressure on the company’s teams

3. For greater insights into cloud capacity costs, the airline adopted a FinOps approach

 

The Need

1. A plan to optimise the company’s cloud capacity spend

2. Easy-to-navigate cloud management tool providing analytics and insight into usage and activities

3. Automated AWS processes such as resource tagging, allowing people to focus on sustaining major growth

 

The Solution

1. Klarity Core implemented for easy analysis of costs and greater cloud cost management and visibility

2. In-depth and ongoing collaboration with the airline’s Head of Infrastructure for fast and sustainable transition to a FinOps approach

3. A dashboard provides transparency on where costs are, where savings are and forecasted spend

 

Results Delivered
