Micro Focus HCMX FinOps Express Debuts
December 8, 2022
Focus released their Hybrid Cloud Management X (HCMX) FinOps Express at
the Gartner IT Infrastructure, Operations & Cloud Strategies Conference
(IOCS), taking place this week in Las Vegas. With about $500 billion
being spent on cloud infrastructure currently, this new SaaS release is
designed for financial management of cloud investments to reduce
surprise bills and optimize cloud spend.
Identify inefficiencies – Spot idle, oversized, or overprovisioned resources with reports that help identify spending spikes and inefficiencies.
Build a budget – Take advantage of the built-in module for budgeting that provides an additional layer of financial responsibility across engineering and other teams.
Save with AI-assisted recommendations – Utilize AI to auto-generate recommendations for reservation planning that can help lower cloud rates and save as much as 72 percent.
Implement self-service guardrails – Proactively prevent costly surprises by consolidating offerings from major cloud vendors into a single catalog and excluding costly or non-compliant options while implementing spending limits.
HCMX FinOps Express is a part of HCMX, which also includes capabilities for multi-cloud design and provisioning, policy-based compliance, and lifecycle hybrid cloud service orchestration. As cloud migrations and digital transformation continue to drive strategic business change, Micro Focus HCMX FinOps Express is one of the ways Micro Focus helps customers support cost-effective migrations, optimize cloud spend and ultimately lower the total cost of ownership for IT. HCMX FinOps Express is available now.
