Through 2020, 80% of organizations will initially overshoot their IaaS budget, due to a lack of cloud cost optimization, governance and misguided upfront cloud spend commitments.

Gartner, AWS and other cloud vendors have referenced Cloud FinOps as the practice for cloud cost management.

Join us in Melbourne on the 10th of March to meet Mike Fuller, co-author of the book 'Cloud FinOps', and learn how FinOps can tackle cloud overspend and allow you to take advantage of the cloud to accelerate innovation.

Time: 12 - 2 pm 
Location: The Observatory at The Garden State Hotel, 101 Flinders Lane, Melbourne VIC 3000
