According to Gartner, worldwide public cloud end-user spend is forecast to reach nearly $600B in 2023. For most businesses, the goal is to reduce operating costs and increase overall efficiency. Moreover, cloud technologies make it possible to continue business operations virtually anywhere—with reliable internet access—when unexpected circumstances occur.

Unfortunately, due to price bundling, many businesses are overpaying for cloud services they neither need nor know about. This problem became especially prominent during the pandemic when businesses began scrambling for new technologies and solutions. What many companies don’t realize, however, is that their cloud services either have overlapping features or that they are paying for features that are never used.

The Wall Street Journal reported as far back as 2018 that up to 42% of businesses end up overpaying for services as they rush to adopt cloud computing. Let’s take out the irony. After all, you’ve purchased cloud services to save money.

Key findings 

A survey of over 1,000 IT decision-makers by in 2022 found that:

    • 60% of respondents are using multi-cloud infrastructures, with an additional 20% implementing said structure within the next 12 months
    • 94% of respondents reported their organizations to have avoidable cloud expenses
    • 66% experienced under-used resources
    • 59% reported over-provisioned resources
    • 47% reported a lack of skills to manage cloud infrastructure

These findings mirror what we see with our clients, and we’ve created a methodology to rectify the excessive cloud spending via our rigorous cost optimization assessment and expert advice.
