Survey highlights importance of tracking cloud consumption

Cloud Cruiser has released the findings of a Dimensional Research survey that reveal the top challenge with public cloud consumption is the ability to proactively manage usage and costs across the business, the company said.

The report reveals that nearly one third of organizations today are doing nothing to track, manage and allocate cloud consumption costs. Of those surveyed, 92 percent stated that they are currently using a public cloud and 95 percent indicated that public cloud usage will grow over the next 12 months. Additionally, the survey found that momentum is being driven by a number of factors including big data and business analytics, with development and testing services coming in a close second.

Cloud Cruiser recently announced the release of Cloud Cruiser 16, a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application that provides a smart meter for today´s multi-cloud environment.

Cloud Cruiser´s application is a smart meter for hybrid cloud that gives detailed insights into usage and spend, enabling the business to deliver the right services at the right time.
