FinOps success requires business, cultural, and technology changes

FinOps is a hot topic right now because it can help optimize growing cloud costs. However, many companies aren’t sure how to get started with FinOps or implement it effectively. In this podcast David Linthicum talks with the FinOps Foundation’s Executive Director J.R. Storment and Chief Technology Officer Mike Fuller, authors of the book, Cloud FinOps: Collaborative, Real-Time Cloud Value Decision Making, about the cultural and technological changes that accompany FinOps. They also give advice on how to get started and what they think are keys to long-term success.


A lot of companies see the transition to cloud or the cloud transformation to be just an engineering challenge... but it really is a business transformation.

J.R. Storment is the executive director of the FinOps Foundation and co-author of "Cloud FinOps: Collaborative, Real-Time Cloud Financial Management."

Mike Fuller is the chief technology officer of the FinOps Foundation and co-author of "Cloud FinOps: Collaborative, Real-time Cloud Financial Management."
