FinOps – Why Does it matter?

The cloud financial management landscape has witnessed a major paradigm shift in recent years. The FinOps ecosystem is evolving at a rapid pace attributing to disruptions in AI, ML and Data Analytics. The scope of FinOps has expanded magnificently to enhance the business value of cloud and not just merely focus on reducing the cloud costs. We can clearly see a new era of cloud transformation emerging with FinOps certainly taking the centre stage.

Business Challenges

As more and more organizations are migrating their workloads to cloud, there has been a massive demand for sophisticated tools to manage cloud migration and cloud investments. Organizations are seeking out ways to monitor their costs, plan their budgets and optimize their cloud spends. There is a need for a tool that not only helps in reporting, planning but also in optimizing, remediating spend anomalies, management and governance of hybrid environments all at once place. Cloud spends are incomprehensible owing to lack of granularity and breakdown of the cost components. Moreover, organizations want to see the breakup of costs in a categorized way. As data volumes increase, unexpected cloud costs can lead to high spikes in billing which can derail the budgets. Organizations are struggling to bring together the engineering, finance, and management teams to unleash the potential of collaboration. Moreover, recent economic downturns have fuelled the need for businesses to optimize their resource utilization.

Let’s deep dive into the FinOps optimization levers which can help businesses to enhance their efficiency and drive growth -


A critical aspect of FinOps is tracking and analysing the cloud expenditures across services, budget planning and forecasting. You cannot improve what you cannot measure. Optimization calls for equipping the stakeholders with meaningful and actionable insights to promote data driven decisions. Organizations can monitor their resource utilization, set benchmarks, and track Key Performance Indicators in real time to take timely decisions. FinOps practices advocate for a clear understanding of who is responsible for which cloud costs. This is achieved through cost allocation models, where cloud costs are attributed to specific business units, projects, or applications. Showback or chargeback models can be implemented to ensure accountability and cost optimization incentives.

Resource Management and Waste Reduction

One of the most important aspects of FinOps is identifying opportunities to enhance the cloud efficiencies and eliminating waste from unused resources. It becomes imperative for the financial management solution to simplify the complex commitment plans offered by the cloud service providers and offer recommendations for purchase plans. Here, the focus is on implementing practices such as rightsizing (scaling resources to match actual demand), Reserved Instances (committing to long-term usage for discounts) and identifying and eliminating idle resources.


The power of financial optimization lies in the integration of cost optimization practices into DevOps processes. This includes automating resource provisioning, scaling, and decommissioning, as well as incorporating cost considerations into the software development lifecycle. It allows organizations to streamline processes, improve efficiency, and enhance cost optimization efforts. Implementing automated policies and guardrails can help organizations enforce best practices, compliance requirements, and cost optimization strategies.

Continuous Improvement

Companies should embrace a culture of accountability and collaboration to evolve the FinOps practices and align the cloud financial activities to overall strategic needs of the organization. The entire FinOps ecosystem needs to be integrated with the help of Cloud Governance, SOPs, Trainings, Compliance, and Policies for effective cloud management. This also indicates the integration of collaboration tools for timely reporting and decision making.
