The Technology

Hundreds of well-funded organizations are racing to establish market leadership within the cloud monitoring and management platform sector. It is a complex challenge, as these companies need to architect and build enterprise-ready platforms that can track multitudes of instances for multi-tenant / multi-account portfolios, within different public clouds (Azure, AWS, Google) in real or near-real time.

While this range of platform options drives competition, it can be difficult to know which is best for your organization. Bad bets on the wrong technology can become very costly in terms of budget, performance and opportunity cost. In many cases, the smartest decision is to partner with an MSP. A core part of their practice is to know what technology is best in class and what products provide superior outcomes in cloud monitoring and management.

Benchmarking

  • Calculate the cost of operating your current data centre, including capital costs over the equipment lifespan, labour costs and any other maintenance and operational costs, from licenses and software to spare parts.

Migration costs

  • Determine the cost to migrate IT operations to the cloud or to switch cloud providers. These costs should include labor and expenses to integrate and test apps.

Control Costs and Maximize the Business Value of the Cloud

While starting out on a cloud adoption journey, organizations often fail to set up a framework for cloud cost management. This leads to cloud sprawl or the uncontrolled proliferation of the organization’s cloud environment without proper tracking and accountability. And this, in turn, leads to highcloud costs. A few gaps in your current cloud environment can easily make your cloud spend spiral out of control. Ask yourself:

  • Do you have complete visibility into your cloud spend?
  • Are your resources appropriately provisioned?
  • Are you using the purchasing options in the most cost-effective way?
  • Are you using any tools to control costs across cloud platforms?
  • Do you have the strategies, systems and internal communications in place to connect your cloud costs with your business insights?

Our experienced team of cloud-accredited professionals will help you plan, detect, identify, and recommend necessary cost optimization measures to minimize cloud operating costs through a structured approach.

Cloud Versus On-Premises Operational Costs

For decades, MFT solutions have been installed on-premises as part of a broader B2B integration architecture of systems such as ESBs and B2B gateways. Many companies are now migrating to cloud-native enterprise integration platforms as a service (EiPaaS) and want to know how MFT can align with a cloud-native integration framework.

These costs consume a large portion of the IT budget even in the system’s lowest use periods making it inefficient to scale. With Cubesimple’s cloud MFT service, companies only pay for what they use. It doesn’t require any on-premises deployment and delivers continuous updates—reducing maintenance and letting IT focus more on business and innovation.

IT leaders tell us one of the biggest problems they find with on-premises MFT is its significant capital and operational costs, such as

  • Software deployment and patches
  • Infrastructure deployment and patches
  • Backups and high availability
  • Data security
  • Server maintenance and energy footprint
  • System administrators and support staff
