What is FinOps?

FinOps is an operational framework that brings finance, operations, and technology together in a way that helps service providers overcome the complexity and challenges of cloud financial management.

Why is FinOps important?

FinOps gives service providers better clarity and control over the cloud costs and responsibilities across their entire data ecosystem. That’s a major advantage that can help them to improve profitability, reduce financial risk, improve compliance and efficiency, and increase security.

How to implement FinOps

Adopting FinOps requires cultural change so that finance, operations, and technology teams are working efficiently together. The Octopus FinOps platform unlocks data that can be used across all these teams – enhancing collaboration while providing the deep insights and strict governance needed for FinOps to be implemented successfully.
