Dismantling barriers to cloud success: FinOps might be key

Cloud adoption rates differ across geographies and industries, but one thing is certain--even the most reluctant companies are starting to migrate to cloud, though hurdles remain. In this podcast, David Linthicum and Hystax's Edwin Kuss discuss cloud migration strategies and how cloud providers are overcoming migration barriers. Edwin also explains how the emerging discipline of FinOps has the potential to mitigate one of the most worrisome issues--rising cloud costs and wasted spend.

[Companies] have the issue of how to use the cloud in the most effective way, best practices, where to put their workloads and how to avoid wastage and save money.

Edwin Kuss is Director of Global of Sales at Hystax. He has more than 20 years experience in operations, go-to-market strategy, leadership, sales management, Internet, telecommunications, SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, and BaaS.
