Find out if you are overpaying in cloud and discuss your cloud cost management approach with our cloud cost experts.
We know you have a lot on your plate, and don’t need another project. Therefore, we have designed our services so that the decision is risk free and will free up time and money. When you implement cloud savings they take immediate effect – and therefore every day you wait is costing you money that could have been put to better use.
This is for you who are considering using our cloud cost management services for Azure, AWS or Google Cloud.
To make your evaluation as simple as possible, we offer you a completely free assessment so you can evaluate whether this is something for you. This is much better and much faster than doing desktop research.
If you invest 15 minutes in data collection (online session) and 30 minutes in a management presentation you get the same report as you would in the paid service based on your complete cloud environment. You will get an independent review of your cost savings potential and what you can do to improve manageability of your cloud spend.
Too good to be true? No, we are here to make your “cloud cost management” efforts simpler – also when you make a decision on whether to use us or not. And of course, we hope that you will buy a paid service after you have tried working with us.
You know there is nothing like a free lunch.
Of course, we hope that you will become a paying customer, but only if it makes sense for both of us. With the free assessment, we can get a clear picture of whether we can be of value to you, and you will get a clear understanding of what it’s like to work with Kostner – much quicker than by reading blogs and marketing materials, and withouth the hassle of sales meetings.
It isn’t a free trial, it is a free assessment.
Therefore, no hidden subscription, no credit card required.
If after the free assessment, you want to become a paying customer, that is something you actively have to sign up for.
Keeping your data secure and private is fundamental to our survival as a company. We protect it like we do our own. The data you will provide us has no GDPR or security implications (no personal data, no IPs, no sensitive information).
A majority of Danish C25 companies have worked with us. Companies in 9 European countries have worked with us. We want to protect the trust we already got from these companies.
Yes, getting off to a good start is crucial. Our cost-focused customers only overpay with 2-5% where new customers who have had little or no focus on cost overpay with more than a third (36%).
Additionally you can discuss your specific topics and issues at the quarterly cloud cost management workshops.
Your cloud architects will enjoy these conversations. And your CFO the results.
The short answer: You could do it yourself! Some of it! But should you be spending your time on this?
We spent a few thousand hours on your behalf, reading thousands of pages of licensing agreements, adding millions of price points, and building this into our AI tool. This allows us to crunch the numbers and work with you to implement the changes.
Maybe the question should be: Should you be spending your time on this? Or can you create more value for your company by focusing on other tasks?
Your team is already saving you millions on your cloud bill and is doing a great job.
If they are at all like our other customers, they will get three things out of working with Kostner:
We understand that it sounds counterintuitive for an expert team to get external assistance. Still, even the best athletes have a personal trainer and use tools to optimize their performance. In fact, the better they are the more specialists they have to optimize their performance.
Independence matters. We have no conflicts of interest.
We are not limited by partnership agreements with cloud providers, we don’t get a commission of your cloud spend, and reducing your cloud spend will not limit our revenue in any way.
Also, all we do is cloud cost management. Our focus will not be distracted by having to build or operate your environment.
If you have made an annual commit you may think that price optimization does not matter as long as you stay within that commit. That is actually not true.
If you optimize your spend and have extra money to spend within your annual commit, then you may buy reservations paid upfront for the coming year(s). If you do so you will still spend the annual commit for the committed period, but will then get a very low cost year once the commit period is over, because you will have paid a large part of that years spend up front.
If you have outsourced your IT the task of cloud cost management exists anyway. Frequently, it is included in your outsourcing contract in one form or another.
However, you should be aware that your outsourcing provider will easily be distracted because you will more likely talk to her about operations or developments, rarely on cloud cost management. True?
If so, they simply do not have the focus on cloud cost management, and from a financial perspective it will cost them money because they get a provision of every € you spend on cloud.
Working with Kostner will give you the necessary background to understand the tasks of cloud cost management and ensure that you with your outsourcer at least quarterly will focus on cost.
